Migraines and me

Migraine cause ‘identified’ as genetic defect http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-11408113


Thank god I don’t have these severe migraines anymore. I used to have a migraine once a month at least, and strong ones, luckily I am one of those people who don’t mind throwing up (sorry for the disgusting visual here), even though I cry every time I do because it’s one of the worst feelings someone can go through, because throwing up due to migraine is… different. Anyway, so when I throw up a couple of times, somehow I cleanse my body and I become able to sleep still. Yes, all migraine people know it, soft pillow, no light, no sound, and no moving even for one millimeter.


But why am I not having migraines anymore? Because I am undergoing a laser treatment, as I suffer from TMJ – Temporomandibular joint disorder. And guess what, about 60% of people suffer from it, there are different levels of course. I started the treatment last December (2009), I go twice a week to the doctor’s. And since then, all my neck and arms pain are gone, I still have headaches, migraines come in a much lower strength, meaning I can still make it through the night, out with friends or talking to people instead of falling on the ground and lying there. YES, many times I used to stop walking and just lay on the ground.


Oh, what does migraine have to do with TMJ? Technically, there is no such thing as migraine per se, it’s either TMJ or epilepsy. So, if you suffer from migraine, I suggest you get your jaw checked, and not by a dentist, my Dr. is actually someone who studied general medicine, specialized in dentistry and stomatology and jaw treatment by laser (about 14 years of studying). His specialty is very rare, comes from German research and doesn’t exist much in the world. I am a firm believer that this is something people need to be aware of. If you want to know more, really don’t hesitate to contact me.



  1. This might be a life saver for my fiance..will contact your soon akeed =)

  2. I really Thank you for sharing this.

    They diagnosed me as having semi-migraine a long time ago. Since then, I decided to live with it and take 2 Advil pills as soon as i feel the migraine threat coming at me. Moreover, there is no where to run from what i call a 'chrisa' at least twice a month.
    Your post made reconsider giving it another shot.
    I will DM you on twitter for more details.

  3. Wow..this is news to me..thank for the information. Glad you are able to undergo the treatment..i really feel for those who can't! Feel better!
