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.

Hi, for the past 6 months I have been getting really bad shooting pains in my head and face.
