|There's no pretty picture for my issue, so....Hamster!|
I think my mouth is trying to tell me something.
For the last 3 days, at least twice a day, (if not more) I keep accidentally biting the inside of my cheek. It doesn't matter if I'm eating, chewing gum, whatever - my cheek just meanders in there and, CHOMP! I'm in pain.
It's not like I'm starving and resorting to self-cannibalism - if I was, I'd start with those juicy love handles that I'm packing around and not the inside of my face.
It's incredibly frustrating.
I'm hoping it's just something I can treat with the usual "Man's Way of Doing Things", (ignore it, hope it goes away) because it would be a shame to have to get a professional involved at some point.
Me: "Doc, I don't know what's wrong - I keep biting the inside of my mouth."
Dentist: "Have you considered stopping?"
Dentist: "Keep trying - oh, your insurance doesn't cover this type of visit - that'll be $150."
I like my way better.
But just in case - does anyone know how many calories in a human cheek?
