in 1996 i had an upper jaw expansion done to widen my mouth to make room for a dental implant
. where i was stitched on the i inside of my upper lip
, at the top of my gums i have severe nerve damage on my left side from the area above my left from tooth to about 3 or 4 teeth back.
6 years later, if anything touches in that area (a finger, toothbrush, gauze...) it's enough pain to make me pass out. its stabbing, searing, and burning all at the same time.
