*mushes banana*

So, I woke up this morning in a lot of pain. I don't know what's wrong but my jaw hurts like a mofo. It's the back right hinge of my jaw that hurts, and it's radiating back to my ear. When I first woke up I thought it was an ear infection (I have a history of those and they can make your whole head hurt).

I just came back from the doctor's and she doesn't know what's wrong. She couldn't see an infection, but that doesn't mean it's not there. I couldn't really open my mouth wide enough for her to have a good look, but she didn't think it was a tooth thing. Or I could have just done something while sleeping (like grind my teeth). She told me to ice it, take some Advil and wait. It'll either get better or it'll get worse.

So now I'm stuck eating a mushed banana for lunch.

*smooshes some more*

*pets* I'm having the same kind of issue, only I know mine is related to a stitch that the nurse left in after my extraction/bone graft. Of course the dentist is closed until Monday. :|

UUgh, banana mush. I'd opt for yogurt, myself.

I don't actually like yogurt, I find it too sour for my tastes. And actually, I had been so distracted by the pain in my mouth that I didn't think to pack any appropriate food for lunch. I just happened to have a banana in my purse and got some soup from the cafeteria. So it wasn't so much an option thing as that was all there was.

I woke up this morning with most of the pain gone (it got better over the day yesterday). I could finally get my mouth into a position where my teeth could come into contact with each other, but it turned out that I was a little enthusiastic when I thought I could chew. Good thing I just tested it on a grape instead of something bigger. I ended up having apple sauce for breakfast. I kind of hate apple sauce. :(

Aww. I just had a tooth extraction on Wednesday, so I know *exactly* how you feel. We'll have mushed banana together. *smooshes with you*

Yeah, I think I'm going to be on a liquid diet for at least today as well. Although, I'm having pudding at the moment, which is awesome :)

Do you grind your teeth? It could be TMJ pain, which kind of fits what you're describing.

Oh, ouch! I've had to deal with things like gum surgery in the past and was forced to have a similarly mushy diet, but to not even know what the problem is...yii.
