the wood under my tongue." I would like to first say that it cost me $50 to go to my PCP and $70 to go to the specialist. Spending $120 was enough to make me sick.
Anyways back to my tongue. I really liked the specialist. He was awesome and wanted me to call him by his first name. Never had that happen before but to spend $70 and see him for 5 minutes maybe I earned it. He also used 2 Popsicle sticks to poke around in my mouth. I wanted to tell him that perhaps it wasn't the best idea to put wood in my mouth but I figured he knew best. I don't have such a good track record with sticks made of wood or so I thought.
He informed me that I don't have a splinter in my mouth, I have a bulging vein under my tongue. How in the hell was my PCP so far off? I thank my lucky stars that my PCP didn't try and remove the "splinter." I would have ended up in the ER getting it cauterized.
The specialist said that my bulging vein might go away, stay the same, or get bigger. He wants to see me again. I don't think that I'm willing to pay another $120 for this again. I'll just watch my vein and keep my money.
Why do these things happen to me,
