On Wed. I am going to see another specialist in Montreal at the M. General Hospital. He is an orofacial and pain dr. I hope he will have some answer to these severe constant headaches because no one else has been able to figure this out yet. I pray this will be a positive appt. I have had enough of these headaches for the last nine years. They are robbing me of my life. I have done all forms of treatments and seen tons of dr. had all the tests done for my tmj disorder and still have the headaches. So let this be the answers I so want. Next step may be to come to the states as there seems to be so many centers for headaches and facial pain.
Please send me some positive vibes!!!

Another prayer is coming your way! I have suffered with Migraines since I was a teenager, and for a long time they thought it was TMJ. I hope you get the answers you need & that the answers lead to a cure or at the very least a reduction in pain.

I'll certainly send lots of healing vibes;my cup runneth over thanks to all of you, so I'm going to share.


I have sinus headaches sometimes, but that's different. The only time I had migraines was right around when I started being perimenopausal. I never knew there was such as thing as "menstrual migraines." I guess some women get them throughout their life, and then around perimenopause they stop. In other cases (like mine) a woman who's never had them begins. I don't know if hormones could have anything to do with your migraines. It's been going on for so long for you, but it's worth asking if no one comes up with anything else.

Mine finally stopped at menopause.

I hope you find answers and treatments soon!

Thanks for the healing thoughts all!!!

Pa, I had my hormones checked and they are fine. All my tests are negative. The jaw joint space problem has been fixed as well recently. Now I'm doing this new treatment called IMS. Apparently it is very effective for chronic pain.
