Re: What to expect
Yes I was neg. on the blood work. I have been suffering from nerve pain, dry eyes, mouth, joint pain dizziness for 2 years. Doctors kept brushing it off as anxiety from the neuropathy. I didn't know how much the lip biopsy would hurt, no one told me. They said it would be like having dental work done. I should know by now not to believe the doctors. Lower lip was very sore, needed pain pills for 2 days. It has been a week and a half now and lip is still tender and numb. Dr. says feeling will come back but don't know if I believe him or not. I had the biopsy down by an ENT specialist that has done tons of these. I sure hope he knows what he is talking about. I have gone from someone who worked full time, walked 2 miles a day, all of the housework and shopping to someone who can barely make it through the grocery store all in two years. I honestly think mine was set off by a foot surgery. My eyes are so bad. I use Restasis and over the counter eye drops. The over the counter ones sometimes 3-4 times an hour. No relief. I even tried the eye plugs, no relief. Just wish I knew what to do.
