Numb chin syndrome update #8 [final :)]

I did not check the visitors' data for a while, and doing so today I realised that there is interest in finding out what the final outcome of the affliction may possibly be.  Well, here is my report of how things stand today, six years later.

The good news is that 99.9% of the time I am totally free of any reminders of that past event.  Yet, there is that teentsy bit of 0.1% which does not allow me to forget completely.  It is nothing important, though. What I am talking about is that the very end area of the nerve, at around the canine, remained sensitive to temperature differences.  This means that when I drink a hot tea, in that little spot the liquid registers as just a bit hotter then in the rest of my mouth.  Even more dramatic is the sensation when I eat ice cream.  The sensation has been the same for many years now, there does not seem to be any sign of diminishing any further. 

I am not complaining, it is actually fun.  But it is there.  It is something that I will probably experience for the rest of my life.  :)
