Darley,

Thanks so much for your wonderful advice. I went to see a Headache and Facial pain doctor who specializes in TMJ. He did X-Rays of my head, face, jaw and neck and also a sonogram of my jaw. The outcome was that my jaw and neck muscle are not properly aligned. He prescribed a mouthpiece to be worn about 4-6 months along with therapy. I lef this office on Monday with a temporary silicon mouthpiece until my semi-permanent one is ready and Tuesday, 8/8/00, has been my best feeling day in about 9 months.

I am eternally grateful for your help.

Thanks,
Larry


: Hi Larry, sorry to hear about your pain.... keep researching possibilities.... I suggest doing a search on the net for 'TMJ' or temporomandibular disorders, esp. if you think you clench your teeth together. (this puts a huge strain on various muscles in the head and neck,even affecting the sinuses and ears)
