Went to the E.N.T. today. Got back a bit ago. He said I have some scarring / trauma in the back where the parotoid gland empties into my mouth from grinding and clinching my teeth. So, I have to wear a mouth guard at night when I sleep. Joy! I have to go back in 6 weeks for a checkup. If it isnít better by then (the scarring and whatnot) he will prescribe medication to relax me at night to help me sleep, and to keep me from clinching my jaw.

Update: My mouth piece is all ready, and molded for my first night of sleeping with it. Oh, joy. [sarcasm]
I went to the doctor today, because my jaw was acting up again. TMJ symptoms, and whatnot.
The doctor seems to think that my Paratoid gland on my right side has a stone. He's stuck me on antibiotic for now, and referred me to an ENT (Ear Nose and Throat) specialist for it. I also have to stay away from acitic foods. There goes one of my favorite drinks, orange juice. Grrrrrrrrr... Anyway, My appointment is for Thursday and it's $150 just to walk into the office. *shakes my head* I'm NOT happy.
*chuckles* I should have a new Furry Fury a week from now, maybe sooner. We'll see. I've been preoccupied with my new kitten, Lana. She's a hand full, and she's got me punk'd.
Sleepy time bath... *chuckles*
