On my first visit they took an armful of blood and told me to come back in 4 months. On the second visit they took the other armful and told me to come back in 3 months.
Today it was a new person. She looked at the results and told me I had the bestest blood in Greater Manchester. She looked in my mouth and took X rays. She said I had the best teeth, gums, fillings and crowns in the Northern hemisphere.
She told me to congratulate my local dentist.
Instead of rejoicing - I repeated my symptoms which have plagued me for years. In other words I reminded her why I was there in the first place.
She went all ‘touchy feely’ on me. She talked about emotions and coping skills.
She diagnosed *Atypical Odontalgia*.
According to Google ‘Odontalgia’ means toothache and ‘Atypical’ means something like nutter.
And the treatment …. Amitriptyline … for me nerves.
This is the stuff that makes Eileen forget what day it is and sit watching channel 5 in the mornings. They are ‘anti - depressants’.
I argued and sulked but she was adamant.
I start in 2 weeks time.
