Every time English nursery worker Linzi Grant, 18, sneezes, bits and pieces of her teeth literally shoot out of her mouth — and unfortunately, she has yet to figure out exactly why this keeps occurring.
The U.K. Daily Mail explained that her doctors believe her type 1 diabetes might be causing her teeth to become so weak that they literally crumble under the pressure of a sneeze.
But Grant refuses to believe this, especially given that she she maintains a clean diet devoid of sweet foods and sugary drinks.
“If it was as easy as changing my diet, I would have done that years ago,” she said. “I’ve tried everything and I’ve just been left to put up with it.”
And putting up with this has not been easy for the young lady, who has faced a tremendous amount of bullying because of this mysterious condition.
“I’ve been bullied by people who tell me I’ve got manky teeth,” she recalled. “It’s humiliating and I’ve been astounded by how many people just stare. Every time I sneeze or jolt my head bits of my teeth shoot out.”
She added that the problems with her teeth began surfacing by the age of 14, when her teeth suddenly began disintegrating for no discernible reason. As a result, Grant has already had three of her teeth permanently removed, and doctors recommend she get the rest extracted as well.
Apparently, however, she preferred not replacing her entire set of teeth with $30,000 implants, so she remained hopeful that someone out there will be able to help.
“For so long I’ve just tried to get on with it by myself, but I can’t do it anymore,” she said. “There must be someone who can help.”
Unfortunately, the people capable of helping happen to be her doctors, and though their recommend solution frustrates her, it may very well be her best option.
