Did someone just beat me up?

Yesterday morning I got up after my exposure at the oral surgeon’s office feeling less than myself.  I was tired and a little out of it.  I got myself motivated to at least vacuum and steam the kitchen and living room.

By 2:00 p.m. my arms and legs hurt so bad I just had to go to bed. I have mentioned that I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.  Mine for the most part consists of achiness off and on unless I get an exposure to chemicals or mold.   I stayed in bed and slept on and off until I finally got up at 8:00 p.m. and ate some dinner (much thanks to my dear husband).  I immediately climbed back into bed and slept through the night.  I had a slight fever for a bit.  I was worried that I might be coming down with something but no this feels too much like my body reacting from a hefty exposure.

I am still achy and could easily just crawl back under the covers and ignore the world.  This tells me that there is no way I could be in that office without my mask for 30 minutes or longer.

I am going to attempt to get through my jumble of emails and read posts from fellow bloggers through the day.  Maybe I need some more glutathione, Vitamin C and magnesium.

Have a good day you all.

  4. Kathy:

    I am so sorry to hear about your exposure and your subsequent reaction. I remember back to my first stay at Dr. Rea’s clinic and what he said to me about fibromyalgia. He explained that environmental doctors view the muscle pain diagnosed as fibromyalgia to be pain from exposure after the body reaches its limits or its capacity to detoxify exposures. It is no surprise that exposure triggers your pain and leaves you in the state you describe.

    I hope you feel better soon. It would be helpful to clear the energies of the exposure through deep breathing and visualization. You can picture yourself in a cloud of light. Within that cloud you see a waterfall of even more brilliant light. Walk into the waterfall in your mind while breathing deeply. See the brilliant light come into your body through the top of your head. Inhale it in, then exhale the light through your feet and into the earth, sending it deeply into the earth while thinking “I clear myself and help myself to heal.” I hope that exercise helps.

    Blessings and love,

    • Thank you Jennie. On top of the reactions and now the fibro flare, is my frustration about trying to find an oral surgeon. My biological dentist isn’t offering any help other than his first recommendation (the one that has used candles in his office). I will work on my breathing and visualization.

  5. Get feeling better. It is frustrating when a short exposure can knock you out of commission.

  6. I admire your courage and optimism so much, as life must be so hard for you. 🙂

  7. Oh dear, I do hope you are feeling better soon. The minerals are sure to help somewhat, but finding a better, more understanding oral surgeon would be even more helpful. I wonder if there is a list of doctors and dentists in your area for people like us? From a support group? Here in Melbourne, Australia we have a support group called AESSRA, here we can find a list of doctors and dentists who understand enough to not use these products. The list is only based on other people’s experiences, but what is funny is most people see the same two or three dentists! It’s so hard going to a place where we have to wear a mask, and then be expected to take of that mask to have work done. Rest up, you are a tough cookie. And, I know I keep saying this, but Bless that Husband of yours!

    • Yes, finding an oral surgeon is going to be a very difficult task. I will start tomorrow by making a list and seeing where I get. There really isn’t a support group around here. I am glad that you have such a group.

      And, my husband has been a wonderful help.

  8. I “liked” your post, but I don’t like your post at all. That your visit to the oral surgeon’s office, solely for the purpose of determining if it would be safe for you, put you in such a condition is horrible. I hope you’re feeling much better today. Peace.

  9. Hope you are feeling better. I’m sorry to learn about the horrible experience and exposure you had.
