I don’t write about my health much anymore – the occasional muscular strain – such as the issues I’ve been having with my achilles, which have generally settled down (except during games) – but otherwise...

The teeth situation has settled down nearly everywhere, except for two points.
  1. The original problem site – the ache at the base of the upper right 2nd molar. It’s not that it’s gotten better, it’s just that I’ve gotten used to it. The dentist doesn’t address it anymore; in his opinion it’s either neuralgia (in my head) or jaw strain and will go away. I’m still of the belief that if they took out the 2nd molar then the ache would go away, but what do I know? It’s only my mouth.

  2. I’ve discovered a weirdly sensitive spot on my lower left end molar, right down at the base of the tooth, right down at the gumline. It’s a bit weird because it’s a very specific point that gives a weird feeling when it’s pressed or pushed against. I haven’t spoken to the dentist about that – don’t really want to deal with another issue. I’m due for a checkup in 6 months, so we’ll see how that one goes.

The toe joint is still feeling swollen and iffy, the physio thinks it’s muscular rather than joint-related, and is doing muscle release on the arch of the foot. Between that and the Achilles issue, I’ve only been playing one hockey game a week, which is a bummer, because I liked playing up in the grade I got dropped down from. Ah well, my team is the only one in our club on track to go into the finals series, which does mean there’ll be no going away in September, but simultaneously is kind of a nice kick.
