Well maybe not quite a bone. Maybe calcium deposits trying to escape? This is probably the first time I can't find a useful video on youtube related to an issue I'm interested in.
It's been a rough six months or so. Torn meniscus, and a variety of other leg issues. Maybe heel spurs again? I had a hell of a time with that in the mid 90s. Couldn't walk a quarter mile without a break. But inserts worked.
I still have the inserts, but I stopped using them after a few days because the ortho specialist said that my tendon problem is usually caused by wearing high heels, and I can assure you that there's none of that weird crap going on around here.
But back to the bone: A few weeks ago I noticed a lump on my gum in the inside of my mouth, not the cheek side. I was a hard round mass, but obviously not an abscess. So, I figured that since I have an appointment for a cleaning coming up in mid-November, I'd let it be.
So, whatever it is popped through my gum. Donna took a look and said that it looks like bone. So off to youtube, but the videos aren't helpful at all. The videos show surgical removal of growths from peoples' mouths, but nothing quite like what I have.
It would be nice if I can have the dentist grind it smooth at my appointment next week, but that sounds almost too simple. The thing wasn't causing me a problem until it came through the gum. Now my tongue catches on it and takes all the fun out of eating and swallowing.
Since youtube let me down maybe greasers on MyBloggers won't. Have you ever heard of such a thing, or had one?
And I didn't even write about the six week chronic pain workshop we attended. This old age crap is getting to be too much like work.
And for now, let me leave you with one word: Kratom
