Here is a somewhat oversimplified list of how my Dr visits have gone since my pain started, highlighting the most frustrating incident of the process (that took place over a year's time) . Just for your enjoyment.;)
Dentist - go see --->
General Practioner --->
Ear, Nose Throat Dr --->
Ear, Nose, Throat Nerve Specialist --->
Pain Management Specialist ---> why don't you go see your dentist . . . . . .
. . . my thoughts: um, you're joking right?!?
