REMINDER: Ten on Ten Tomorrow!

No exciting, witty, earth-shattering post here. It's 1:30am and I'm awake with an annoying headache doing what you should never do. Googling reasons for these nagging headaches I've been having recently. Right now,  I think I've narrowed it down to TMJ.

My dentist is in the process of putting in a crown she's been bugging me to do since the first day I sat in her chair seven years ago. I finally caved. And now have a temporary crown in the back of my mouth. A big, fat headache along the front of my forehead. And ears that feel clogged and "itchy." Weird symptoms when you don't add in sore throat or stuffy nose.

So, yep. I'm pinning this one on good ole Dr. Lewis. I knew I should have just kept ignoring her. I'm sure she'll be slapping braces on me next time. Or breaking and resetting my jaw. Throw in a free in-office whitening and you've got yourself a deal. Just get rid of these headaches so I can sleep!

Whoops! Got a bit sidetracked there. This post is supposed to be a reminder that tomorrow, Tuesday, August 10th is Ten on Ten. Take a picture every hour for ten consecutive hours on the tenth of the month. Then share on their site. It's so much fun! Hope you'll join in. Can't wait to see your day!

Of course, it's tomorrow and my husband is out of town and he has the camera.
Maybe he will get back early!
Have a great day.

Oh, you should NEVER Google ANY symptoms you are having I did it when I was pregnant. HUGE mistake!

Hope you're feeling better.

I hope you are feeling better today...and I'll be clicking away tomorrow.

You sure it's not allergies?? Clogged ears that feel itchy plus a headache and sore throat can be allergies! Hope you feel better soon!

Oh my. I probably shouldn't tell you this, but my husband's a dentist. Surely, you're not an anti-dentite (Seinfeld reference, I apologize if you have no idea what I'm talking about). And while I'm just the wife of a dentist, I can tell you TMJ is usually a result of grinding your teeth. If the temporary crown is too high, you may be grinding your teeth (not even knowing you're doing it) because your bite feels off. Let your dentist know and she can shave it down and hopefully give you some relief.

I look forward to seeing your Ten on Ten!
