Well since finally getting health insurance things are moving along. I have a great primary doctor and I mean great. I wasn't even going to go back to this doctors office because the doctor I had before this one was awful. He never did anything for my pain and referredme to doctors when I didn't have insurance. Well he retired and now I have a physician assistant and she is everything. I tell her I feel so blessed to have her. So far she has done my bloodwork and brought me up to normal on some stuff. She has referred me for MRI'S on my back and knees. Doctor referrals to rhuemalogist, nephrologist, gastroenterologist, pain management, and orthopedic doctor. She is doing some pin management till I get into the pain doctor by prescribing me some Percocet and muscle relaxers. My vitamin D is always very low so she prescribed some for me to take.
Now I have also went to the dentist because the Sjögren's has really took an effect on my teeth. I have 2 teeth that I knew had to be pulled by found out I actually have to have 5 pulled. I hate the dentist because when I was a child the dentist didn't numb me all the way and I felt everything. He thought I was screaming just to be screaming and put a tool in mouth to hold it open. I felt everything getting cavities filled, from drilling into my teeth and all. To this day it takes a lot to numb my mouth.
But 2 of my teeth are broke down under my gum line so I'm worried about getting my gums cut to get it out and the other 2 are my wisdom teeth and the last one is the side tooth. At my consult yesterday the surgeon assured me he will have them out and I will be sedated and numb. I'm just worried about the pain afterwards and not going into a Sjögren's or fibromyalgia flare from it.
But I just wanted to update you guys on my progress, and thank you guys again for the prayers and keeping me positive on getting insurance. It feels good to go to the doctor and not the Emergency Room. Gentle Hugs everyone, you guys have kept me from going crazy.
