Post MarkSC - cranial osteopath

Sorry not to respond earlier. Been away.
The CO I see is in Maidenhead, Berkshire. John Qureshi is his name.
I do know of an excellent one in London - think he is in Tooting now. John Trigger.

Re: MarkSC - cranial osteopath

hi.
I found this very interesting.I went to a dentist and he says TMJ doesn't cause dizziness.I think he was wrong. Been to 2 ents and they say nothings wrong with my ears.Went to a neuro and he wouldn't listen to my symptoms cause i mentioned this board and he told me I'm imaganing things and I've probably got fistulas in my ears. I'm dizzy all the time and my ears pop when I swallow. The scary thing is the neuro symptoms i've got-i wake up during the night with numb fingers or hands,most the time ther's buzzing in my hands or feet. If I stay out of bed for 4 hours my head and face start twitching,and everything including my back and neck start pulling. I'm scared of MS,but doctors just won't listen to me.I don't know where to turn next.My doc sends me to specialists and just gets letters back saying ther's nothing wrong.I don't imagine symptoms.And the neuro didn't even examine me.I don't know where to turn next. Can Tmj cause neuro like symptoms.About 2 months after my dizziness started my jaw did got out for about a month,but then it went back into placeHelp,I don't know where to turn to next,I've been posting all over this board

Re: MarkSC - cranial osteopath

Tanyak55, TMJD definitely can cause dizziness, this is widely recognized, if you have TMJD it could could be causing your symptoms (other illnesses also can cause them I understand, but for me anyway these are not the cause). Muscle spasms starting in the tm joint can travel right down to your feet, they can compress the nerves and cause numbness also, and the back and neck tension and strain. I've had similar symptoms to yours right down my body, due to my jaw spasming. Gentle stretching, using heat or ice, showering in very hot water, resting (not overusing the muscles partic in the neck and shoulders, not carrying much or doing repetitive arm work), can all help, I want to learn how to stretch and relax myself together with trying to regain balance for my tm joint.

This is maybe the best post I have seen here. Or at least the one that makes me understand my own problem. I have been having success with the treatment exactly as described. Wonder if it helped you eventually 100%, and how long did it take ?
