numb lips = cold sore?
okay, so the lip is still a little numb, but not as numb as it was when i woke up.
i asked the gals on the chicklist what it could be and both dani and guphy think it could be the onstart of a cold store. yippee. i don't think i've ever had a cold sore before, maybe once in junior high or something, but i can't remember.
after doing a bit of research it did sound like perhaps it was stage one of cold sore from hell. so heather and i ran to the market at lunch and i bought some $17 ointment (abreva). it's supposed to help shorten the duration and also is supposedly best for early treatment. "Apply to affected area on face or lips at the first sign of cold sore/fever blister (tingle). Early treatment ensures the best results."
for $17 it had better work.
stupid cold sore.
wtf are you coming from?

You know that cold sores are REALLY contagious right? Like, air-borne contagious? That is why my kooky health teacher demands us to stay home if we have a cold sore. And if we come to class with one? Well, she very well may lock us out.

oh man and won't abreva just numb it, too? how scary to wake up like you went to the dentist in your sleep. hope it's ok! and stop kissing dirty birds!

my lips are numb too. i blame it on a sloppy endontist, a botched root canal, and a pinched nerve. hope they can fix it.
have you had a root canal lately?
