My Kingdom for this Knowledge

This is what bad sockets look like.  They drain yellow goop downwards.
These are crowded too close together and the nerves are probably constantly pinched.
2 front top teeth, drain down on 7 bottom teeth.
Look at how perfect they are otherwise.

This seems to be a thing, the crowding pinches the sockets.
My bad left bicuspid was lodged between two others, got pinched every time I chewed.
But it always looked perfect.  It never got a cavity.  And even though I had nine years of orthodontia,  my dentists never even noticed it - (Yeah, it would have been nice if they had pulled the bad tooth instead of the four others they chose to extract.)
Nobody ever mentioned it- even the hotshot high-tech dentist when I was 45 and had my entire mouth overhauled to alleviate my excruciating head pain...
That nerve started twitching when I was four years old.  Which is about the time I started sleepwalking.
It had stopped hurting by the time I was 17.  The suicidal ideation started around then.
And even though it was tweaked my whole life and the socket was basically an open sore in my mouth, I couldn't feel it and it didn't fall out until I was 53 and my Arizona dentist pushed it to the side and out of the trap.
It took two more years to figure out how to heal the wound though...

That tooth was like a railroad spike jamming into my ulcerated upper jaw my entire life.
A little Benzocaine probably could have diagnosed and solved the acute problem before I ground down all my other teeth, my entire head was affected, and my metabolism was shot.

It's a really nice tooth.  I'm having it silverplated.  It's my reward for not killing myself.

(for the record, I don't know whose teeth these are, but the right side upper and lower molars are toast, and this person definitely has auditory phenomena.  Probably both hearing loss and tinnitus or hallucinations.   But the dentist is marketing having the front ones straightened.)

(and just for some bonus irony, whitening yellow teeth with hydrogen peroxide makes the gums dry out and more prone to infection)

Sheer Unmitigated Madness

Republicans are going to destroy health care after ninety seconds of debate. Because Process.

Donald Trump just called Kim Jong-Un "Rocket Man" in front of the United Nations.

He's going to do a lot more crazy shit to distract you in the next two weeks.
Call your Senators and tell them to vote no on Cassidy-Graham.
Especially if you have a pre-existing condition or might need to get into a nursing home any time soon.... (yo old folks- wake up- that's YOU.)

Irony Squared

What Dentists Can Tell About Your Health Just By Looking In Your Mouth

Many antidepressants cause dry mouth, which can lead to cavities. SSRIs like Prozac, Paxil, and Zoloft commonly have this effect. While these drugs can help people manage mental health issues, some decrease the flow of saliva, which acts like a protective agent for teeth. Dentists who notice the issue or are alerted to it can recommend sprays, saliva substitutes, or other strategies for protecting teeth.


Alzheimer's drug stimulates tooth repair

Research shows aspirin could repair tooth decay
The research findings show that aspirin can enhance the function of stem cells found in the teeth thus helping self-repair by regenerating lost tooth structure.

Oh the Humanity

I have been ruminating on life's ironies for a week.

Here's a good one:
Doctors have been treating narcolepsy with one of the most expensive and dangerous general anesthetics.
It's very likely the best medication is one of the cheapest and safest topical anesthetics.

And so it goes

Chester Bennington’s Wife Shares Video Of Him Laughing Hours Before His Death
     Linkin Park singer’s widow, said that “depression doesn’t have a face or a mode.”

Yes it does.  I could have picked him out of a crowd.
This man shows all the symptoms of long term bacteremia and cortisol overproduction. Baldness.  Tattoos.  Serious epithelial dysfunction.  Insulin resistance.

I'm guessing he ate or drank something that ulcerated his mouth and his whole head inflamed.
It happens real quick sometimes. I've gotten migraines in 10 minutes after sour candy.

Rest in Peace dear man.

And one more promo for this movie:   Perfect Sense
I like it more and more all the time.
They got so much right, except for the order.   Epithelial sensation disappears first.
Then all the other senses are easy to destroy.

Oh Oh Oh!

Somebody with cataplexy please try the Chloraseptic experiment.   Spray it on your tonsil area.  See if numbing/shrinking your throat will soothe your vagus.

Alternate Facts

Why They’re Called “Eye Teeth”

Ummm, probably not.
If your canine tooth or socket is infected, your tear draining duct will close and your eyelids on that side will puff up.
This is before I spent $5K on eyelid surgery. What a waste.  My eyelids still puff up, just not quite so bad.  They are the first thing I check in the mirror when I get weird.

Mapping the Insanity

In general, the facial symptoms line up with the teeth.

If your front teeth are bad, the symptoms will be closer to your nose or chin.
If your back teeth are bad, it will be closer to your ears.
Upper teeth go with face pain.
Lower teeth go with neck pain.

Remember, many of these infections are actually in the tooth sockets or gums between teeth.
And some of the symptoms are caused by nerve problems, others are caused by toxins draining.
If you have recurring skin eruptions in an area or line, they are probably caused by the underlying nerve.

Infections in the first two molars go to the outer sides of the eyelids and ears. 
Displaced bicuspids and canine teeth are real common in people with narrowing of the upper jaw.    Infections in this area tweak a nasal nerve and cause eyelid and nose twitching, puffy eyes, sinus problems.
Infections in the front teeth correspond to pain between the eyebrows, that pinching effect.
Notable exception:  The wisdom teeth area affects over and behind the ear and causes occipital neuralgia and back of the neck pain.

Infections in the molars drain down into the neck and cause a double chin.   They also cause ear inflammation and symptoms.   And pinch the parotid duct and clog your largest salivary gland.
The third molar area will drain into the shoulder and cause twitching.  Whether you have the teeth or not.
Infections in the bicuspids cause jowls and wattles.
Infections in the front teeth affect the chin.

Lower teeth rarely hurt in adults. They get all the drainage and lose sensation sooner than the rest.
If you have bad uppers, check the teeth below them too.
All of the molars can cause auditory phenomena.
All of the uppers can cause visual phenomena.

A mini-vibrator is a good way to test your facial nerves, find the inflamed ones.
Anbesol is a good way to determine if your problem actually is in your mouth.  Put a drop on your suspect area, and see if the symptoms fade.

Further Adventures in the Loss of Sensory Perception

My kingdom for some reliable pain sensation...

Ordinarily, my mouth doesn't hurt.   My cheeks or eyes or neck or shoulders hurt when my teeth are bad- but not my mouth.

Last Friday I finally had a gum abscess between my crowns that was painful enough to need emergency treatment.  But I couldn't get to the dentist until Monday. So I went and bought Benzocaine liquid (Anbesol).   Put it on there for three days and (insert many florid curse words here) the septic pocket healed.

So I skipped the dentist and I put it on my slow healing tooth socket.  The one I have been nursing for two years.  And it healed in two days.   Because Irony.

So then I swabbed it on the gumline of my upper teeth.   And all my eye and cheek wrinkles relaxed. Ten dollar botox.  No shit.
So that gave me the idea of mapping every tooth, which I still need to diagram.

Lidocaine has many of the same properties as Benzocaine, so I decided to put some cream on a sore on my arm that wouldn't heal.  You know, one of those painless sores that ends up cancerous....  I have tried everything I could think of in the last year- antibacterials, antivirals, aloe, hemp oil, vitamin d, vitamin e, steroids, coal tar oil...

I applied it at midnight.  It was half the size and disappearing rapidly at 7am.
I put benzocaine on it the next night and it's shrunk by half again.  (forgot to take pictures, sorry!)
I have also put Anbesol on my psoriatic toenails.   Nothing has helped those either.    Until now.
Fingernail experiments are next.  

The research says these two are only mildly effective for bacterial control.   In petri dishes.
But it seems to keep those infected nerves from firing- and triggering the inflammation sequence- whether you can feel it or not- and allows the long term healing process to function.

Seriously.....  I am never-ever-ever going to get over this experiment.   This could change everything.

My mind is racing-
I think swabbing Benzocaine in old folks mouths might be an effective treatment against Alzheimer's.
It also helps break up throat biofilms, dearest strep zombies...
Pretty sure Chloraseptic spray would work to rapidly subdue most psychotic episodes.
But I will be writing more about that and more later.

In the meantime, do know that some people (especially children) have dangerous reactions to Benzocaine, and that you should test yourself with one drop at first.   And don't ever overdo it.
I also recommend taking out the stick and using a swab instead.  Much more precise.
Start with squishy molars or canine teeth.
I am working on mapping my face pain, so you can know which teeth to try next. (here you go)

Keep calm and restore your epithelial integrity.
Best wishes for a rapid and dramatic recovery.   


(While you are considering the efficacy of this treatment, please notice that I strung a whole sequence of descriptions and interactions together in this post.  I haven't been able to do that in months... I feel SO much better it's astonishing.)

Here’s Why Steve Bannon Wears So Many Shirts

No, it's not a fashion choice.  This is a symptom.
The man is septic.  His temperature control is not functioning.  He feels cold all the time.
His circulation is shot too.  I would bet five hundred dollars his nose and fingertips are ice cold.

Old sick people dress like this.   Even in Tucson, even in the summer.

(Wearing that much clothing with chills makes you sweat in there.   Which covers your skin in salt and dehydrates it.  Which makes you feel even colder.)
