I’ve had some pain and numbness on the left side of my neck and jaw for months now. I’ve seen a doctor, dentist, ENT specialist and physical therapist but no one can figure out what’s wrong.
Given my history with lymphoma I’m having a CT scan this afternoon to check my lymph nodes. This involves drinking about a quart of contrast that tastes like puréed sheet rock and bananas. The scan is painless and only takes a few minutes, as opposed to a few hours for a PET scan.
I’ll get the results on Thursday.
