Sounds like TMJ to me. I suffer from these terrible headaches on a daily basis. The other symptoms you mention are in the tmj package as well. I would suggest seeing a tmj specialist as well from my experience. This is an awful disorder.
Good luck and let us know how you make out with your appt.
I'm sorry your pain is at such high levels and you have been through so much. I really hope this splint can help you and relieve some of that pain. The fioricet doesnt seem to be helping the migraines....so I might have to call the neurologist. The TMJ can cause migraines right? I havent been diagnosed with it yet, just the migraines. I'm getting acupuncture on Monday, so we'll see what happens...
I currently live in Chicago with my fiance and we are getting married in June. I am a dance teacher and choreographer in a large studio in the suburbs of Chicago. I am from Cleveland and just moved here about a year and a half ago. How about you? Hope we can keep talking :)
I suffer from chronic tension headaches / daily headaches I to feel life my life is on hold - the pain is so bad I miss days off work. Mainly the pain is on my left side and especially in my eye - I have had a headache everyday - some bad some not to pain full for 7 years im now 24. I have tried every single tablet known the nhs - recently I went private and saw a neurologist who has mri scanned me - everything was ok as I thought. I have seen an osteopath with is a REAL BAD THING! I have a straight spine instead of a natural curve with little fluid in the discs which could contribute to the headaches. Recently I saw a doctor who specialises in BOTOX which I have now had done - it takes 4 to 10 days to kick in and has a very high success rate of about 70 - 80 %. The first few days I still had a headache but now 1 week on I have a clearer head than I have done in years. I would highly recommend this - I also see a phycio which really help.
Hope this helps you all
