Customer Question

I had oral cancer 6 years ago, left Buccal mucosa. Thick scar band, painful. After radiation, big bump in tongue. It erupted with a big hole. It hurts like crazy. Now side of tongue hurts. Small hard bumps. Also diagnosed with tooth infection and iron and B complex deficiencies. The whole left side of my head hurts. I can't eat because it hurts too much. Feel lightheaded, dizzy, and weak past 2 days. I can't even get to a doctor. The escalation of symptoms started 2 days ago. Pain used to come and go, but now it's always excruciating. Now I can't even brush my teeth. It hurts too much.
