Good news: Not an abscessed tooth.
Bad news: Most likely TMJ. I go back next week to see the specialist.
(No, I do not know much about it, and yes, I am still in what can be termed pain. This is most likely because I have just woken up and it seems to be linked to teeth grinding, which I was unaware I did while I slept. Here's the key thing to remember though: it hurts for me to talk! So for those who know me, this is an obvious hardship. =)
So, mostly silent Jenny for the next few days. Or at least until the pain dissipates each day. Recommendation? Please don't call me because I will shunt you to voicemail.
Yes, some of you have e-mailed me. I'll answer them after I've eaten my breakfast of soft foods. Mmmmm.....mush. =)
