Another Swallowing Study

Once again, I don't have much time to prepare for an upcoming appointment. Thanks to a canceled appointment, I have a swallowing study with the speech-communication disorder clinic, on Monday. Instead of once again telling Dr E. that I have had the specialists evaluate me already, I accepted the referral (this will be by third visit with a speech therapist). I receive annual "check-in" surveys from the therapist, but when this past one came around, I didn't have the problem that I have now.

I gag when I brush my teeth.

If you have followed my blog from it's beginning, you would know that I take great care of teeth. And if you have ever been with me at bedtime, you would know that I take special care when brushing me teeth: no corner, surface, or cranny is missed.

But for the past month (or more) brushing my teeth has been an uncomfortable routine. I don't expect anyone to be able to help me with this situation, but I do want to know if it's related to my MS.


Annual Check-up

Life goes on. Things get better.

Earlier this week, I had my annual MS check-up with my neuro. I knew that the date was approaching, but I hadn't cemented it in my head, as I had in the past. I didn't spend a week worrying about what to say, how to explain my concerns, or what silly things the nurse might say to me to make me feel crazy. I left feeling good about things.

Well, as good as can be. I have another MRI coming up in February: it's nice to see that my neuro is showing an interest in my brain. I also got a prescription to help me with my bouncing legs at night. That's it for another year.

Life goes on. Things get better.
