Snow again! And sonic tools

I'm told London had four inches of snow, in the heaviest snowfall in that part of England in 18 years.  I've been told London doesn't even have snowplows!  My friend S. says he's sure the Doctor is somehow responsible. 

We're having a snowstorm here.  The snow outside the window is so heavy that it looks almost like fog:  the opposite side of the courtyard is blurry and obscured behind the haze.  I wish I'd thought of taking a picture before it started to get dark.

I had dental work done on my upper teeth this morning, and now my nose is for some reason extremely sore.  It feels like a bad case of allergy nose, as if the inner lining were all inflamed.  Any time I move my upper lip or sniff or rub my nose, it twinges.  I'd never heard of sore noses related to dental work, but a full-blown nasal allergy to something developing in five hours, in February, seems unlikely.  I didn't have the problem this morning. 

One of the treatments I had this morning involved a "sonic tool" that applied high-speed water to the base of my teeth to remove build-up.  (It hurt a bit.)  Everybody's getting sonic these days ....

Could it maybe have to do with sinuses?

When I had my wisdom teeth out, I started developing terrible neckaches. It turned out it was because the wisdom teeth surgery had damaged a muscle in my jaw, which was translating to neck pain because of the way my body was compensating or something. So weird.

Maybe. It's actually my nose that hurts, as with allergies: if I press the left side, for example, the inner part of the nose hurts, as if the lining were inflamed. That doesn't sound like sinus pain as I've experienced it. I'm thinking maybe the Novocain injections, which were in the flesh where the upper lip meets the upper gums, damaged something. They were injected pointing upward, and that is awfully close to the bottom of the nose. But I've only ever had minor sinus troubles, so maybe this is something that can happen if you have a more advanced condition.

That is weird! I hope it got better? It sounds like something that would take a while to get diagnosed.

I can definitely understand where dental work would aggravate your sinuses potentially. Hope it clears up soon.

And yes, the Doctor absolutely is the cause of the snowstorm. Naturally.

Thanks!

Now, of course, someone has to write the story. :)
