Harry: Just checking in...
I've been hanging around. I read the boards everyday. Since discovering my bowel problem and having it corrected, I've been able to move on to other parts of my body that seem to be falling apart!
After reading this board, I discovered I had Celiac and have corrected that problem. After hanging out at the thyroid board since having my thyroid removed, I discovered I was hypothyroid. I've corrected that and feel great.
Around Thanksgiving, my jaw dislocated (those who know me think this is hysterical. I can still talk with my jaw locked in the open position!) A couple of weeks after that, I had this lump in my throat. Started having trouble swallowing, but I didn't make the connection with my jaw locking open. Had a barium swallow (Not great, but better than having it inserted in the other end!)Found out I have GERD, which is strange since I never, ever, have heartburn unless I'm pregnant(and I'm not...whew.) But nothing indicating a lump. I just did a search on lump in throat and found out TMJD. I've been hanging out at the TMJ board. I have a very very mild case. Just got my splint the other day and it is already helping!
So, I'm always here. I check the boards at least three times a day. Feeling great...now if I could just quit dreaming about Schlotsky's sandwiches!
Hope you are doing well, Bowel Guru!
