A few weeks ago, I noticed an unusual numbness in my lower lip, as if I had received novacain at the dentist, but it did not wear off.
The 2 1/2 cm (approx.1") wide affected area included my lower lip, my gums, my inner mouth, my tongue, my upper lip, and even my cheek.
At times, I barely noticed the discomfort. During the last few days, however, there have been moments when my speach was impared and moments when I felt severe discomfort, even pain.
I thought this might pass, but it seems to be increasing in severity.
I am trying not to panic, but I do not want the situation to remain as is.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
Friday Morning in Israel
