I am at my wits end with ties!! (long vent)
I'm going absolutely crazy here.
Evie has a "very prominant" upper lip tie and NO-ONE will cut it because it's too thick and would bleed too much, yadda yadda yadda.
She's 6 months old now and the last person we saw about it (#5) suggested she needed general anesthesia in order to correct it properly. And everyone said she does NOT have a tongue tie. I say BS! I'm pissed off right now.
I, myself, have swallowing issues and am constantly swallowing air (among other tie symptoms) so I wouldn't be surprised if I have a tongue tie. I'm pretty sure I have a lip tie.
My dentist just diagnosed my 7 year old with an upper lip tie and will fix it if his lateral incisors don't push his middle teeth together (he has significant gap). He also is having to be fitted with a key device to stretch his palate cause he doesn't have room for teeth in the front (a symptom of tongue tie).
I'm going nuts!! I'm certain that myself and all three of my kids have lip and tongue ties (despite all the ppl who say they don't). This is FLIPPING RIDICULOUS.
I contacted a woman who has a blog about Posterior Tongue Ties and asked her to refer me to someone who will diagnose it correctly and fix it in all three of my kids and myself.. I'm tired of the acid reflux, the slurred speech when I'm stressed, and the constant need to wipe plaque out from under my upper lip. I have dental problems up the wazu and it's a miracle I was never fitted with a retainer or braces. I have TMB issues and click and blah blah blah... sorry for the rant.
Anyway, she suggested a doctor who's 6 hours away (where we USED to live) and I'm about ready to call his office. I need to have all of us looked at and fixed and quick. This is causing way to much hardship and stress on me.
Thanks for reading and letting me vet. FB status posts aren't long enough for a proper vet.
