@brightwings This is a lovely statement that really triggers my heart energy. I often think of how life might end, and wonder if people who don't have chronic pain can ever possibly understand. Thank you for your acknowledgement of how this family has been supportive. You are full of grace and love. Wishing you a painless journey.

@aliali I highly recommend Elizabeth Kubler Ross's book. It gives an insight into various stages. I agree with Merry that it does not happen in compartmentalized stages. I have lost my father, mother, dear friends and the feelings and responses are very similar. Loss of energy is not unusual. Grief groups are often offered through hospitals, hospitals, and other agencies. It helps to talk, at least In my case.

@ethanmethanmcconkey, could you inform us as to why Burning Mouth syndrome has been moved to dermatology?

@ristu, My chiropractor is quite knowledgeable about lasers and uses one in his office. The next time I see him, I will ask him about the MLS laser. I have heard that some people respond well to amitriptyline. I can't use it because it causes my gums to throb worse than before application. Do you have BMS or Trigeminal neuralgia? Some people are diagnosed with both.

@ristu Hi, Stu, amitriptyline and calcium channel blockers have not helped me. I have had BMS or Atypical trigeminal neuralgia since 2004 due to a dental incident. The only think that helps me is Klonipin, Cymbalta, and ambien for sleep. I also do yoga and see a chiropractor on a regular basis.
