    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hello Marie,

    It takes a while for our tongues to heal or get back to norm. I have bit mine numerous times. I used a Warm salt (Lots of salt) water solution to rinse my mouth, b4 &/or after meals.

    I Highly recommend you seek a Neurologist ASAP! Your First question B4 making an appt: Does This DR specialize in Epilepsy? Is your husband on any medications or treatments for Epilepsy?

    Hugs Love Candi
