Metal Allergy??? Oh Boy!!!

It was a shock to learn I had an allergy to the polymers used in making dentures…. and this morning, I got to thinking… do I have a “Metal” allergy??? Like Nickel??? Which is used with Titanium to make Dental Implants… See where this is heading??? Oh boy………………………….

Back in 1995 or so, hubby bought me a braclet that was sterling with gold plating and I went with him back to the jeweler and got something that was 14K or higher, no memory what we bought… but the gold plate part of the memory is solid…. and important and one that has bugged me for a couple of years… Damn this memory recovery is weird… and annoying….

I know by the DNA testing, I don’t have any issues with producing heavy metals or what ever that result was at 23andMe… but allergies to stuff, oh boy…. I just got my legs chopped off…………………………………………….

As long as I can remember, I usually don’t wear any type of costume jewelry that are ear rings, because of the metal and allergic reaction I have had, since I got my ears pearced on Okinawa in 1971, my first federal civil service job… one hole is still lower than the other… Ice and a clothes pin… lol…..

But I’ve known, since that time… I had to buy sterling or gold and stay away from anything plated or costume……. and I started reading the chemical science of implants and that’s when I read the allergy……

Now I wear a lower partial, which is partial metal…. no clue if its, nickle or what ever… but it makes my tongue burn on occasion, so I’m allergic to it and that means…. I’ll be allergic to implants………………damn, double damn and blood curdling scream….. all that money lost on my dental work and the VA cost me… they cost me in my health, my mental health, my dental health……. death care… not health care… death care!!!….

Sorry I digress…..

So, if my appointment happens in June, my first request… Metal test on my blood, to see if it has an allergic reaction to the materials used in dental implants… if it’s positive… we are done and going home, as soon as we get tested and have proof, we have some form of immunity or get a vaccine….

Regardless…. dental implants are probably not going to happen….

I say that with a lot of certainty, don’t I???

One of the problems I read about, electrical discharge in the mouth, between the implants, which is normal in someone like me, who has so much nerve damage and already been told Peripheral and Autonomic diagnosis, waiting on Neurology to tell me it’s full blown Mylopathy…..

Oh well… in a way, it’s a relief… I won’t be getting sliced on, because I know from wearing pierced ear rings… I’m allergic to nickle that they will use in the titanium implants….

$20,000 worth of dental work destroyed by the Arkansas VA and the Oahu VA let it all fail…..

Yep, me and medicare are going to be real friendly… My PT will cost me out of pocket about a $100 a month for the 3 months of care… but at least I’ll be staying alive, not dying more at the VA hands of death care….

This sucks, and until they do that special metal test on my blood, I won’t know for sure… but really??? After all I’ve proven… You think I’m wrong???

I don’t….

It means getting the last 3 teeth removed and a full denture for the upper and a proper fitting one for the lower and we work to move off Hawaii and go find the same crappy health care some place else…. that is a true story, regardless of how great health care is during a pandemic… Eyes are watching…

Those same eyes, turn away when it comes to veteran health care….
