Well : Well as we say this is a nice kettle of fish. You have a long history of problems and i think the advice to see an oral pathologist the correct advice from dr. Zweig. It is a shame that all those different remedies have clouded the issue. There are a number of good periodontists who could steer you in the right direction right there in hendersonville, north carolina. Generally speaking our periodontist colleagues have a really good grip on diagnosing these sorts of ailments.
You need a good diagnosis.

Yes. : Yes. The specialty is oral medicine. Their website is http://www.Aaom.Com/. You can search their database for specialists in your area. Are you near any dental schools or major hospitals? They would be most likely to have someone able to help you.
