As the title states…CONQUERER OF THE HEADACHES!!! Well hoping to anyways, with your help!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post, I’ll dive right in with the issue at hand!
I have chronic headaches, daily. Over the counter meds don’t help and I don’t like taking narcotics more than I have to and even those don’t touch on my pain. I’m 35 years old and have been having chronic headaches since I was 21, after being in a car accident.
The only thing I found to give me temporary relief are going for deep tissue massages, but at $100 a pop, they don’t happen as often as I need.
Having daily headaches for the last 14 years has interfered too much with my quality of life. It’s not right, nor is it fair to my family.
Most days I push through anyways, well, because life doesn’t stop just because I can’t focus and am in pain. But because of the inability to rest, they typically turn into migraines that I’ve had to be hospitalized for because they’ve been so bad.
WELL! I recently had an appointment with an orthodontist after my chiropractor suggested that I see what they have to say because I frequently have jaw pain that he treats. I definitely don’t have the best teeth to begin with, so I decided it couldn’t hurt to see what they had to say.
Turns out my jaw is crooked and is sitting funny, causing my teeth to clench and do this strange looking over bite, BUT it can be fixed!
When I heard the news that I could possibly get rid of my headaches by adjusting my jaw, I was floored!
Turns out, they would need to break my jaw and reset it. Then, I would have to wear an Invisalign to straighten the teeth with elastics to pull my upper jaw back a bit. I was thinking how funny, my daughter and I would be wearing invisilign together ( she just got hers 3 weeks ago!)
Then they told me the cost. $8600. I was already paying close to $6000 for my daughters, there’s no way I can afford both.
I’m feeling rather frustrated because if it means getting rid of my headaches and improving my quality of life, I’m all in! But I just simply cannot afford it.
This is where you come in, if you made it this far!
Beautiful people reading this, please help me break my jaw and improve my quality of life!
Thanks for reading! You’re amazing!
