He said i should have relief with in three day of wearing my new slint 12 hours a day that includes sleep time. So we'll see. Right now my face jaw temple hurt so bad i could rip my face off. I do know there is no way i can live like this. I do hope my husband coming home in 19 days now.. Can deal with my cronic pain and depression due this horrbile condition. Thanks for your repsonses.
