Customer Question
I have what I think...
I have what I think is a tendon imbalance. It's a long story but basically my dental retainer was put in wrong, so my tongue couldn't lie flat on my pallet like it's supposed to. I had this for 7 years! Until I realised it was causing me all kinds of problems all over my body, spasms etc. Now I've had the retainer taken out I can feel pulsating all through my body from my lips and tongue down to my groin and legs, it's absolutely horrible.
JA: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?
Customer: No swelling, nothing seems to make it better
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
