I like to smile, and I smile a lot.
I take pride in my dental hygiene. That's always been an aspect of my health I could control. Twice daily brushing and regular flossing made my dental visits pretty painless.
That is why last November, well, it bit. I never expected Dan's and my dentist would be the bearer of the bad news about another MS symptom I was experiencing.
After Halloween, I started feeling this painful zing whenever I ate anything sweet. The pain was similar to chewing on a piece of tin foil with a metal filling. Yep, that zing. OUCH!
I figured I had a little too much candy and not enough brushing. Probably had a cavity. Sure enough, my dentist found a small cavity. He numbed, drilled and filled the area and sent me on my way.
But the pain resurfaced a few days later, and this time it wasn't only when I ate sweets. Drinking anything cold also caused a sharp zing in the lower right corner of my jaw. I managed to ignore it because certainl...
My mother started taking Sandomigran 15 years ago - 2 tablets a day to start and now she is down to 1 a day.
She doesn't get what I would call a traditional migraine but was prescribed this medication as her face kept swelling up approximately every month (she was 60). Whichever side of her face she was sleeping on swelled up and she would get a pain in the back of her neck.
After visiting several Dr's she was told by a specialist that it was a migraine and that the medication would help by thinning the blood.

I was wondering:
if the migraine diagnosis was correct,
whether the medication is appropriate and if it should be taken consistently for 15 years,
whether the Sandomigrain could develop early memory loss or any of the oth...
Definition Head and face reconstruction is surgery to repair or reshape deformities of the head and face (craniofacial). See also: Cleft lip and palate repair Craniosynostosis repair Alternative Names Craniofacial reconstruction; Orbital-craniofacial surgery; Facial reconstruction Description How surgery for head and face deformities (craniofacial reconstruction) is done depends on the type and severity of deformity, and the patient's condition. Surgical repairs involve the skull (cranium), brain, nerves, eyes, facial bones, and facial skin. That is why sometimes a plastic surgeon (for skin and face) and a neurosurgeon (brain and nerves) work together. Head and neck surgeons also perform craniofacial reconstruction operations. The surgery is done while you are deep asleep and pain-free (under general anesthesia ). The surgery may may take 4 to 12 hours or more. Some of the bones of the face are cut and moved. During the surgery, tissues are moved and blood vessels and nerves are reconnected usin...
