Hi TD Mapp!
Well, no problem! That is what we are here for! To HELP EACH OTHER!
I know ALL TO WELL about finding a NICE AND GOOD DENTIST! I have had the SAME experiences as you! The last bad one, well, that was only a few months ago. He pulled 2, they didn't want to heal because I had pieces of broken tooth that HE broke! coming out of the holes!
I had to THEN go to a Surgical Dentist, he said it looks okay, it IS normal for pieces of tooth to come out STILL, BUT , the other day, I HAD ANOTHER PIECE OF TOOTH COME OUT AGAIN! 6 MONTHS LATER?
So, since we moved BACK to THIS CITY, I have NOW BROKEN OUT IN CYSTS AGAIN!! I have EVEN gotten a cyst in my mouth!!!!! It was 'next' to the last molar I have left on my lower right gums. That is the ONLY tooth that lines up with ANY other molar in my mouth, AND THE ONLY WAY FOR ME TO CHEW! The WHOLE tooth got infected. OW! My girlfriend had this aneseptic she bought from CVS, and let me tell you, that cyst had this last tooth SO infected! It was DISGUSTING! I had to use that product for 2 weeks. It was HORRIBLY PAINFUL AS WELL!
HERE, again, I SAY WE ARE OUR BEST DOCTOR'S! ONLY WE KNOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH OUR BODIES, OR AT LEAST KNOW SOMETHING IS UP WITH THEM, IF SOMETHING IS OFF, IF WE DON'T FEEL WELL, AND IF IT CONTINUES ON, ONLY WE KNOW! I AM REALLY EMPHASIZING THIS BECAUSE IF WE REALLY TRY TO TUNE INTO OUR BODIES, WE KNOW SOMETHING IS WRONG, AND I WOULD PREDICT, AND NO, I HAVE NO MEDICAL DEGREE, NOR ANY TRAINING IN THE MEDICAL FIELD, I ONLY KNOW FROM MY OWN BODY'S EXPERIENCE, AND BEING TUNED INTO MY BODY SO WELL BECAUSE I HAVE NO CHOICE, BEING AS HANDICAPPED AS I AM. I can't allow myself to much stress, anxiety, and I can ONLY go to 1 placce on any day, and some days, I can't go anywhere, ALL depending on how I KNOW I feel.
The BAD"Dentist had previously pulled out the tooth 'next' to the last molar I have left. There are STILL pieces of tooth coming out from EVERY tooth he has pulled.
My BEST SUGGESTION TO YOU FOR FINDING A GOOD DENTIST: TALK TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. If it takes driving 1 hour away, DO IT! You KNOW it is worth it! Just a quick word of advice. That 1-800 Dentist phone number you see advertised on TV, well, they had my bad Dentist listed. So, PLEASE BE CAREFUL! This is WHY I suggest talking to ALL your friends AND family on finding a GOOD dentist.
I ride the handicapped bus ALL the time to get around to all my Dr and Dentist appointments. IF you can ride the bus, or even just the plain old line-busses, TALK TO PEOPLE! EVEN STRANGERS! It is easy for me to talk to people because I have ALWAYS had the Gift of GAB! Ask my hubby, friends, and family! It had gotten FAR in my career, when I could work, but now with this disease, working will NOT be an option for me ever, unfortunately. I do MISS WORKING TERRIBLY! BUT, God has a different PLAN OF ACTION for me at this point in my life. I have gotten the opportunity to grow spiritually, a LOT more so than when I WAS working, and I am thankful! Sometimes I have to go into the ER for Valium drips thru an IV when it gets really bad and I can't control the spasms, like now. BUT, the last time I was in the hospital, in the beginning of February, the NIGHT NURSE called me a DRUG ADDICT ALL BECAUSE OF THE MEDS I HAD TO TAKE TO STOP THE SPASMS! I LEFT THE HOSPITAL! So far, it has been VERY interesting, I have NOT been charged for that stay yet! HOW DARE SHE DO THAT! TO BAD IF I NEEDED WHAT I DID! I HAVE A DISEASE NO ONE UNDERSTANDS, AND I WOULD NEVER WISH THIS DISEASE ON ANYONE! NOT EVEN THAT NASTY NURSE! THESE SPASMS ARE SO PAINFUL! ACTUALLY, SPASMS ARE SO BAD, THEY CAN BRAKE BONES, PULL YOUR BONES OUT OF THEIR SOCKETS, I CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT THAT OFFICIAL NAME IS?, BRAKE RIBS, ETC. THEY HURT SO BAD WHEN YOU GO THRU THEM, YOU MOAN, GROAN, SCREAM, if YOU HAVE THE STRENGTH TO DO THAT. It took me 3 years to get a diagnosis. It was NOT UNTIL I went into the Detroiit hospitals that I was able to see REAL Dr's, who really KNOW things, KNOW NEUROMUSCULAR diseases, etc. The Dr's around here where I live ALL thought I was ONLY seeking pain meds. Well, I didn't know what was wrong? I am not a Dr. I thought that was what I needed, was pain meds? Here I had Dr's telling me to LEARN TO LIVE WITH OSTEOARTHRITIS! My Rheumatologist actually had the NERVE to tell me I 'could' go to a Neurologist, BUt, THEY WOULD 'JUST' TELL ME THE SAME THING SHE HAD BEEN TELLING ME ALL ALONG. EXTREME OSTEOARTHRITIS!!! Thank GOD in HEAVEN, I KNEW spasms couldn't be THIS bad from OSTEOARTHRITIS! It was a GUT FEELING, WHICH THANK YOU GOD, AGAIN, I ACTED ON IT, AND HERE I FIND OUT I HAVE THIS INCURABLE DISEASE, WHICH REQUIRED AN ENTIRE CHANGE IN EVERY MEDICATION I TOOK!!!! THIS PREVIOUS RHEUMATOLOGIST HAD ME ON chemotherapy!Again, I followed my GUT! YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW YOUR GUT!
I have a LOT of Anger Issues with these Dr's around here in my area. I AM going to write the Dr's letters and tell them what DISEASE I REALLY HAVE! I WON'T BE MEAN OR ANYTHING, BUT, I "HAVE TO GET THIS OFF MY CHEST I will ALSO be explaining to them they MUST LEARN ABOUT "
RARE DISEASES AS WELL AS REGULAR DISEASES MOST PEOPLE SUFFER FROM. THEY JUST CAN'T BLOW PEOPLE OFF ANYMORE, AND THEY CAN'T JUST "BLOW PEOPLE OFF BECAUSE "THEY" THINK THEY KNOW EVERYTHING LIKE MY RHEUMATOLOGIST DID BY SAYING THE NEUROLOGIST WILL JUST SIDE WITH HER AND GIVE ME THE SAME DIAGNOSIS! THEN, THE NEXT TIME THEY GO FOR MORE TRAINING WHICH IS REQUIRED, THEY BETTER NOT SHOW UP FOR ATTENDANCE THE CLASSES, THEY BETTER "NOT" SKIP OUT OF THE CLASS THE FIRST CHANCE THEY GET AFTER THE ATTENDANCE IS TAKEN!!! I FOUND OUT FROM ANOTHER DR THAT SO MANY DR'S, WHEN THEY ARE GOING THRU THEIR RESIDENCIES, THEY SHOW UP FOR ATTENDANCE, BUT THEN THE FIRST CHANCE THEY GET, THEY SKIP OUT AND LEAVE THE HOSPITAL!!!!! A Dr I have seen for the last decade, AND WHO ALSO FOUND MY DISEASE, told me all about that. My son has ADHD, and the Dr my 'ex' took him to, (a new Dr because the one I had been taking my kids to, the 'ex' owes him money, so he COULDN'T go back there!!!) says he does NOT believe in ADHD!!!!! I have a HUGE ISSUE WITH THAT NOW THAT he actually SAID THAT OUT LOUD! He was a lso "UNETHICAL", and told us NOT TO TELL MY SON'S SCHOOL THAT WE WERE TAKING HIM OFF OF MEDICATION, UNTIL WE COULD CHANGE THE MEDS OVER! YOU BET YOUR WAS ON THAT TELEPHONE TALKING TO THE PRINCIPAL TELLING HIM "ALL ABOUT THAT DR APPOINTMENT!. HE WAS VERY APPRECIATIVE I INFORMED HIM. What is the big deal about noT telling the school? Doesn't EVERYONE think the school should know because his behavior will be SO disruptive to the other students, and MY OWN SON WILL BE GOING LIVING HELL GETTING IN TROUBLE FOR THIS AND THAT AND EVERYTHING! UNLESS YOU HAVE A CHILD WITH ADHD, YOU CAN'T IMAGINE HOW FRUSTRATING AND STRESSFUL IT IS FOR THE CHILD TO EXPERIENCE ALWAYS GETTING IN TROUBLE, LOSING FRIENDS, HAVING NO FRIENDS, AND ON AND ON! I KNEW WHAT MY SON WAS IN FOR! I HAD TO LET THE SCHOOL KNOW! IT WAS GOING TO SHOW IN MY SON'S ATTITUDE AS PURE FRUSTRATION!! AND ON AND ON!!!
Anyhow, we CAN'T leave our health "ONLY" in the hands of Dr's OR Dentist's, we have to get 2nd opinions and most of all, FOLLOW OUR GUT FEELINGS!!! Like that nurse, when I was in the hospital, and she called me a "Drug Addict". Come on!!!! I WOULD NEVER GO AROUND JUDGING!!! AND I DON'T!!! (OKAY, EXCEPT DENTIST! BUT, ONLY DENTIST'S THAT HAVE DONE ME WRONG, AND EVEN THEN, IT IS NOT A JUDGMENT CALL, IT TS THE TRUTH!) That nurse had NO IDEA what my disease was, and ADMITTED TO IT! I told her to go look it up online, I was told that she has NO ONLINE ACCESS! I KNOW FOR A FACT SHE WAS LYING!!! SO THEN I TOLD HER I AM "NOT" STUPID, AND I KNOW THERE ARE MERCK MEDICAL MANUALS FLOATING AROUND THE NURSES STATIONS, AND IF THERE WASN'T ONE ON HERE FLOOR, THAT THERE ARE OTHER FLOORS THAT "WILL" HAVE MANUALS. SO, NOT JUST FOR MY SAKE THIS TIME, BUT FOR OTHER PEOPLE'S AS WELL. I AM POSITIVE THAT IF I WERE ACCUSED OF BEING A DRUG ADDICT, THERE ARE "DEFINITELY" OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN CALLED THE SAME THING! I MUST STAND UP FOR MYSELF AND FOR OTHER PEOPLE, TOO!
AND, NONE OF THIS 'YOU KNOW WHAT' ABOUT NOT KNOWING ABOUT DISEASES, OR NOT KNOWING OR EVEN HAVING A "WAY" TO FIND OUT ABOUT THEM, NO, NO, NO!
i AM SURE IF DR'S HAVE TO TAKE SOME KINDE OF OATH, THAT NURSES HAVE TO DO THE SAME SOMEHOW, IN SOME WAY
OKAY, OFF MY SOAPBOX!
I AM SORRY!
BEST OF LUCK TO YOU!
GOD BLESS YOU!!!!
