Hi my name is Blair and I'm a junior in high school. At the beginning of this school year (September 11th to be exact), I started getting headaches. After about a week I told my mother and she took my to a walk in clinic. The dr told me I had a sinus infection which made sense because I also felt pressure in my face and had a stuffy nose. I took the medicine she prescribed for the 10 days but it did not help. I went to my pediatrician a week after and she prescribed me more medicine that did not help. Eventually (after being put on several other medicines that made me sick including an extremely high dosage of prednesone) my nose cleared up but my headache was still there. Since September I've had a headache every day at different intensities. I've gone to 4 pediatricians, 3 emergency rooms, an ENT, a dentist (I now have TMJ and have a bite guard for my teeth), Orthodontist, Eye Doctor, Chiropractor, and a neurologist. The chiropractor helped me a lot at first but now it seems like it's not doing much. I've had a CT scan that came out clean and just got an MRI and MRV done and am waiting for the result. I am not sure if I have chronic headaches or if there is something obvious that everyone's missing!! My headaches seem to stress from the back of my head and go to the front of it. My cheeks are also very sensitive and hurt often. Loud noise intensifies the pain too. There were many times were I couldn't get out of bed. Also, I am a long distance runner and was forced to stop running about 3 months ago because I was not able to function properly. My grades are slipping In school and I am having difficultly doing simple tasks and concentrating. Usually I am happy and full of energy but now I am exhausted, weak, and have anxiety. Please help me if you have any ideas or thoughts . Thank you guys so much!! -Blair

TMJ can be painful and cause sinus issues.

Try to this.:

sit down

Close your eyes
take a slow deep breath in, through the nose, let it out slower to the count of 4, out through the mouth

repeat 2 more times.

relax your neck and shoulders

now, focus on your face, relax the jaw, even slightly wiggle it back and forth if it helps. relax the muscles in the back of the jaw.
Cheek bones, soft, eyes soften.....

breathe, breathe, breathe,

how does your face and pain feel now?

Peace and Strength
