| | HI everyone, its been a while.
I feel like a fair weather friend on here. I have been really getting into scrapbooking and I enjoy it so much that I have switched my computer time to talking about scrapbooking and looking and learning more about it. But I still come on here and read every couple of days.
I just wanted to say HI to everyone. I still care how you are doing. I got to the point where I was just not sure if I was getting better or if I ever really will and I had to start focusing my medical energy on my son instead of myself. I just hate Dr's and Dentists so I can only endure so much, ya know?
My son dislocated his shoulder ( I told you guys that) and we have been dealing with all of the PT and dr visits for him. We are concerned that we are seeing signs of a vascular degree of the Ehlers Danlost (genetic disease) that my son has. He has a vein in his other arm that is enlarged, bruised and hardened. Its really bugging me and I am looking forward to getting him for more testing in TN on Sept 26. He goes for a vein ultrasound tomorrow, here in our town. Our family Doc does not know much about Ehlers Danlos but is taking precautions anyway.
As for my jaw, hmmmmm I still do the tens machine every couple of nights and it helps the most. My repostioning splint works when its in, but I am really bad about forgetting it during the day. I have been doing alot better this week. When I wear the darn splint I feel great. I am completely off of elevil and I still have 2-3 headaches a week. Most are not that bad. The clicking and grinding are driving me crazy, and the locking up still occurs if I don't tens enough.
Hope you are well, or at least getting more well than you were, ha ha.
take care, I will keep checking in.
