I have suffered from TMJ dysfunction for the better part 15 years. With a stressful job, more kids, and life in general, my pain has been uncontrollable for three years. I’ve gone through periods of not being able to eat solids, bouts of migraines that would last days, and muscle tension through my whole upper body. If it the physical pain wasn’t enough, it began to take a severe emotional strain on me and my family. I’ve tried chiropractors, electro therapy, bite guards, bite alignment, muscle relaxers, Chinese cupping, oils, voodoo magic, EVERYTHING. Some things gave me a little relief; some things gave me a lot but came with their own side effects (muscle relaxers). Finally a friend of a friend of a friend suggested Dr. Krah and trigger point therapy. I booked an appointment and went in for a consultation. They suggested xeomin which I happily accepted. I had it done the same day in the office. There was zero pain and took a few minutes. I felt totally fine the day of and into the next day. Unfortunately that night, I felt like death. I had the worst migraine I’ve had in years. I spent two days in bed. The good news is, I woke up the fourth day feeling so good. And I’ve just been getting better and better every day. The pain of those two days was worth how I feel now. I’m crying happy tears writing this; I am so relieved. I didn’t realize how much this constant pain was affecting me until my five year old innocently told me I seemed so much happier this week. I’ve been able to eat meals with my family again. I’m not dosed up on muscle relaxers. I’m funny again. I’m relaxed (as a working mom can be). I’m happy. Thank you so much for your help, Dr. Krah.
