To All Medical Professionals:
Please do tell me if you are planning on sticking a long needle into my jaw. I tend not to like those kind of surprises considering I have TMJ dysfunction. Yes, I tend to be rather hypersensitive to any pain and pressure even close to my jaw for that obvious reason.
Yes, I am going to have such a strong physiological and emotional response to something like that. Sort of defeats the purpose of a nerve block, doesn't it?
If you tell me you are going to do something like that, I can prepare myself emotionally. Otherwise, it is going to be a bad experience for both you and me.
