TMJ Disorder -TemporoMandibular Joint board

Stacy, I'm kind of like you, in that I'm just popping in now and then to read the boards, and looking to find out how others are doing. On the Occipital Neuralgia front, my wife (who does not have any joint derangement) says the pain throughout her neck is decreased--the burning in the back is gone, though she feels twinges in what must be her sternocleidomastoid, which she can get to calm down by relaxing, and putting more pressure on the other side. The jaw pain decreased a little, but is still there. She describes it as being masked. So maybe the Botox has helped (along with the Xanax).

How are you doing? What's up with your surgery? Did you see your pain doc, and if so, what did he say? Is he helping you to manage the pain, and if so, how?
