Hello. Sorry to hear about your fall. This sounds serious. If your teeth went through your lip you are at high risk of infection and poor healing. Your neck pain may indicate a cervical spine injury from the fall. This could result in damage to the nerves going into your arms or legs. I would suggest you make an appointment today to see your GP or go into urgent care for an evaluation and treatment of your injuries. There is no reason to be embarrassed as we see these types of injuries all the time. Accidents happen.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
