Again Thanks very much for all the good wishes. Had my doctor visit with the Neurologist today. He concurred with the Neurosurgeon in Spokane WA that I have Trigeminal neuralgia. Still have to go for a MRI of the brain. Hopefully the medication will stop all the pain. I have been living with mild to severe pain for about 5 weeks in my lower left gum. The meds are beginning to help. I can talk and eat almost normal without much pain. I did loose about 10 pounds in the first two weeks. At times the pain is still there and bad but getting better. My medication is being increased about fourfold over the next 4 weeks. I'm hoping it works with no side effects and for a clear MRI. Again thanks for all the great emails and calls.
Also, I am so proud of Linda driving cross country at the rate we did. It wasn't the way we like to travel.
