As of 6 yrsI have 15 white matter lesions found byMRI,Radiologist suggests MS by location and ovoid shapes. I've always had migraines, 5 TMI's ,many seizures. Ok my Neuro says I don't have MS. I haven't handled money in years, can't count, spell, simple problems, drive, brain and legs do't connect,numbness, drop things,fall(especially stairs),pretty much can't chew gum and walk, LOL I hate it when I am ready to latter burst,but have to sit and concentrate to get the muscles to let me. These things aren't a constant, some get better for a bit. Very sophisticated finally by yet another Rhemotologist I have Lupus RA,sjhogrens, connective tissue,fibro..This all added to 40 years of collecting other auto-immune (ulcerative colitis, endometriosis, thyroid disease,,and more). Supposedly I've Shogrens since a teen $ that is why I've worn a to denture since 25 yrs old. Great dental insurance then, LOL,so bottom fronts caps and a lot of work Last dental treatments 5 years ago. I get bad sores $ ulcers in my nose $ mouth supposedly from Lupus, so 6 months ago ( after 2 rounds chemo Rituxan, weekly shots methotrexate, followed by many months infusions Benlysta). OK, now fast recap of last 6 months or so: August first broken front cap. Sept.hospital for phenumia (I just thought it was Lupus Like I thought when I had bad case of shingles). October till now all my teeth have snapped at base or just shattered. Now I have to go to the surgeon on April 7 and have all 12 teeth pulled at one time. I'll be wide awake and only novacaine.Then wait two weeks for the swelling to go down then the dentist says if I come to his office twice a week he "might" be able to have my bottom denture made in 3 weeks, Guys I'm only 57 and will have no bottom teeth for 5 weeks if I'm lucky. And my husband says isn't great that we'll be on vacation(Time Share) for 4 days (only the Poconos-1 hour drive from home). Yes honey....when I as really thinking:right now I have no front bottom teeth, others broken a th gum, including two molars,so all I've been eating for months is Campbell's chicken noodle soup. From all these steroids I gained a solid 50 pounds & gonna have to put on my suit , and a damn sundress, dress is staying on my butt in the pool for sure. I don't want to ruin my husbands good time soI trying to just roll with it. But this is gonna be dam bass hard to smile and pretend to enjoy this trip to look like crap, feel like crap, no front teeth,and not enough back to even chew pizZa! Then home on wends and dental surgeon the next day! Everyone of us knows what real pain is((the last few months 3,or 4 toothaches allthe time-exposed nerves and my mouth all cut up from all these broken shards in my mouth cutting my tongue like a million razor blades)BUT 12 teeth pulled at once with only novacaine!!! I seriously can't catch a break and I feel like I would love to cry like a baby! I'm clear headed today so in think the spelling was ok, but if you guys read all this, please know how grateful I am. And what about the beginning of this novl, does it sound like MS? My Hemo (I have ITP), said he thinks it possible that it could be Lupus and MS. I thought I go the PRO's you guys.My deep, deep gratitude, Blessings, nd hugs, Debbie
