Now then - don't start talking or thinking like that! This thing might be debilitating but it's by no means fatal. And Alex is right - you need to get someone on your side. Why don't you get your sister to read this thread (well, just the last couple of pages, anyway!) and see if you can enlist her support and help?I don't know if I have much time left.

- joint stiffness
- lack of range of motion
- peripheral neuropathy
Barbie, why do you feel you need a definitive answer on your jaw pain before seeing Dr. Maale? I'm not understanding why you could not meet with him as soon as possible.They do not diagnose osteomyelitis of the jaw and I know I must get my dental nightmare diagnosed before I can have anyone look at my hip.
