Question:

what is nico2cron jw ostitis? i went to my wholefoods market today and had a free evaluation of my symptoms. can this be cured by a dentist? He said this is the result of a wisdom tooth that had been taken out back in 1989 or 1990. He also told me it was my t16 upper left. This is of course affecting other organs and bodily functions as well.

Answer:

The concept of NICO (neuralgia-inducing cavitational osteonecrosis) is controversial, and there is no solid scientific evidence that this condition even exists. An extensive discussion of this "disorder" can be found at the Quack Watch website.
