When I saw that it had been something like 48 days since my last post, I was appalled. To those of you who actually read this blog, please forgive me. It’s been about 48 days since I’ve been able to find the time and energy to blog.

I’ve been to numerous doctors in attempts to diagnose the severe pain I have been experiencing in my ear and throat. It’s funny how they all want it to be the same thing and try to force a label on it that just doesn’t fit because they don’t know what it is. Calling Dr. House!

I finally ended up with a neurologist who was willing to look beyond my healthy ear and non-TMJ riddled jaw. He diagnosed me with Glossopharyngeal neuralgia and prescribed medication before even scheduling the MRI to check the severity. Very House-like, no?

What does this all mean? I’m adjusting to the medication, still having pain, and trying to work. Oh, and clean my house, do laundry, take care of the family… the usual. Hopefully, within a month I’ll be in better shape. Cross your fingers for me, will you?
