Shadowboxer redux…

Today I am meeting with a new Physical Therapist because my last one, though effective, came with an unbelievable amount of drama.

My lovely old friend, the Shadowboxer, is back again in force. I assume the daily stress of my now five+ year long migraine results in me clenching my teeth, which tightens the muscles in my jaw, which triggers my trigeminal nerve, which sends earache pain, sinus pain, and just-slapped-in-the-face pain to my face.

It’s distracting at best and miserable at worst and I will go to virtually any length to reduce the symptoms.

Today that means having yet another person take acupuncture needles and thread them into the trigger points along my jawline and neck and wiggle them until the tight muscles twitch and release.

It’s not a party I really like attending but if it works I will be a happier and better person.
