I got this aching pain in my mouth one day, and the next it was this great big sore – I guess it was a cold sore – on my tongue, near the back. It hurt so bad that I couldn’t eat or talk. Pretty much everything I did hurt… So, for a few days I ate only soft foods… and very little. I went to the doctor after a few days of agony. They gave me a cortisone shot and some steroid mouth medicine to take for a few days. The shot made me feel even worse! My arms and legs ached. I couldn’t even get a book off the shelf at the bookstore… It was pathetic, I had to ask Preston for help! I even had to skip choir at church 🙁
Well, it’s been a few days (over a week), and it feels much better. It’s not completely healed, but it is a lot better. A lady at church suggested that the next time I feel one coming on, I should try Lysine. I’ll have to remember that; I wouldn’t wish that pain on my worst enemy!
