Here is a record of my research:
1. September - City of London Migraine Clinic thinks that they could be related to my "overly flexible neck", food or hormonal related.
2. October - Reflexologist thinks that I am "holding my anger in my neck and head".
3. November - Physiotherapist Mike doesn't know what to think but says my neck and upper spine are hard as a rock and that my jaw opens to one side
4. November - I read an article in 13 November 2007 New York Times - A Lineman in my Bed: Teeth Grinding about about sleep bruxism
In 1993 I had Temporo-Mandibular Joint disorder TMJ jaw surgery because my jaw was stuck and wouldn't open. Don't worry, I still managed to get food and I wasn't in any pain. But I think that the pulling of the jaw to one side and the clenching of my teeth in my sleep (I wear a bite plate) have combined to cause these headaches. They are further triggered by wine, sugar and caffeine.
I'm now doing some long-ago prescribed jaw exercises to see if I can stretch the joint and get some blood flowing into that area.
This may be too much information for some people but I hope that it helps someone figure out their headaches and shares the mysterious cure - is there one?
