OK. I’ve calmed down now. Took awhile but so be it.
My face hurts (yeah, I know..”It’s killing me!!” ha fucking ha). I have some sort of…something…spread all over the left side of my face that aches and itches. Plus the teeth on that side of my face hurt. I’ve been to the Doctor….well, the current stand-in for my regular doctor (long story we don’t need to go into here) and outside of taking my BP, which was surprisingly low, he was ready to walk out the office until I
said..”Excuse me…but I’m here becuse my face hurts.” He kind of looked at me like I’d just beamed in from Jupiter (or possibly Io or Europa). He pressed my sinuses and felt along the jawliine and said..”must be an allergy.” Certainly filled me with a ton of confidence. Told me to get some saline nasal spray. I know I don’t have a medical degree but how does irrigating my nostrils remove the itchy red blotches on my face?
Resolving to find an MD who has at least one vowel in their last name, I went forth to CVS and got benedryl topical gel which I’ve been applying for two days…with minimal effect. So I’ve gone for the pill form of the same stuff and expect to be passed out sometime in the next 30 minutes.
In the meantime, I’d like to take a belt sander to my face….
