Three things Challenge#354

Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
For those of you unfamiliar with the challenge, every day Di at pensitivity101 lists three things that may, or may not, be related.
The challenge is to simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you, using one, two or all three words in your post. There are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use the 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and the logo if you wish.

Your three things today are:
BELLY
LIQUID
HUNGER

Jaw dropping


Many years back while I was working in customer services in a Waitrose, I developed a very strange problem. Over the course of s week I found it more and more impossible to chew or even speak. One morning I woke up and my jaw was clamp firmly shut.
I had to visit the Dr, who when he stopped laughing sent me to see a Maxillofacial Specialist, in fact the Dr rang my dentist and asked him to refer me as he could do so quicker than a Dr.
Long story short I had a clamp shut jaw for about three months.
I could only have liquid food all that time. It was no fun and I did suffer from hunger a lot and belly ache probably because it was empty!
My main fear was I would be sick and I did feel sick a lot. Now because my jaw was clamped shut I worried if I was sick I would choke to death. Luckily I didn’t and I am here to tell the tale.
They never found the cause so it was put down to a ” Mystery Virus” .

This is part of pensitivity101’s Three Things Challenge.

    Glad you are OK, and to think that some people choose to have their jaw wired for weight loss!! Mystery virus is such a cop out though. I had that in 1976 when they thought it was glandular fever, then summer flu, then anxiety, then the Mystery Virus arose. Diagnosis made! Take care.

    I was surprised to hear the doctor was laughing, but perhaps that was a way to relieve any worry you might have had.

    Yikes! I’m glad you made it through. I think it would cause panic at the least. 🤯

    This is the most amazing medical problem I’ve ever heard of, Willow. What a strange thing to happen to you. My best friend in high school had an overbite. She had her jaw broken and reset and it had to be wired shut for about 6 weeks. A very strange time for her, poor girl.

    What I don’t understand is why the doctor was laughing… What the hell is that about?
    Glad you survived this painful experience.

    Wow, that sounds scary, Willow! So glad it went away on its own. Thanks for sharing your experience. (I have TMJ and can’t open my mouth very far but it’s never completely clamped shut.)
