The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

THE GOOD: Ah what a week. Rushing around for the holiday and caching up with friends is so good! So far I have been without gluten and’s those tricky Christmas Cookies that are so very tempting! This week I have been focusing on work and getting my last class done for my grad program which went well! And in the midst of all this I lost some more weight so I’m at a total of 8 pounds lost. Now I just need the time to ramp up my workouts a bit more…but I’m fitting my cloths better which is key.

THE BAD: Okay so maybe someone has some suggestions. I did finally get an appointment at Bastyr for Monday, but my jaw is killing me and has been for about 3 months. It’s terribly painful and my dentist seems to have given up on me after not seeing any improvement with my night guard.  I don’t know if it’s some muscular thing, TMJ or some other mysterious jaw/head pain…but I need to knock that out. Anyone have ideas? A few people mentioned I may have more allergies (oh please no!) that may cause this. I sure hope not!

THE UGLY: I just thought I’d post this for fun. It’s the ugliest car… what is this thing anyway?

  1. That might be the Pillsbury Doughboy’s car.

  2. See if you can get an Empi. It really, really helps. I have really severe TMJ that kinda contributes to migraines. It helps. Also, heating pad/ ice… I have actually bitten through my dentist made mouthguards. Yikes.

  3. Does your jaw click when it opens? I have severe clicking that sometimes causes pain, my dentist gave me a night guard and said that was all he could do short of surgery — but if you are in severe pain perhaps surgery might be an option for you?
