    When you bite the inside of your mouth you keep doing it in the exact same damn spot. I think I've managed to do it about 10 times over the last two days. OUCH!!!!!!! :crying:

    Same thing with hitting your thumb with a hammer. You'll repeat it a couple of more times. It stays in your mind and becomes a target.

    The bitten spot swells, and your teeth are in the same place they were when you bit it. (well....at least most of mine haven't moved in a couple days :supergrin:) so you keep irritating the same spot.

    For me, the cure was to stop walking while I was chewing gum...:tongueout:

    I assume, and this may be wrong, that it swells from the irritation causing it to be very easy to re aggravate. Whenever I do it now days, I rinse the area with hydrogen peroxide after brushing (then again with water) several times a day to keep it clean and it seems (maybe my imagination) to heal quicker.

    I was at the dentist last week and the hygentist and I were talking about that. Wouldn't you know it, I bit my lip two days later and it's still swollen to the point where I keep biting it/tooth rubbing it.
