After that spammer bumped Springy's thread about CT I had to read through it. I got a good laugh from all the bashing of my city.

Why did your therapist recommend you massage your jaw from the inside? I'm curious because I do this and have never heard of anyone else doing it!

I have a recurring knot in the masseter muscle on the left side. It gave me such bad headaches (and eye aches and ear aches), a neurologist diagnosed me with Trigemenial Neuralgia and prescribed me some heavy duty anti-epilepsy (or was it anti-seizure?) drugs.

I felt something was off with the diagnosis, and continued my own research. Well, I'll be damned, self-massage has cured all of my problems. No pain in my head, eye, or ear since July/August.

I also massage my temporalis and sternocleidomastoid daily. I use a tennis ball to self-massage my upper back. I have poor posture and all the muscles are interconnected and affect each other.

You can do it. When you see how much better you feel (and really, how simple it is!), you'll get over the ickiness fast!

A therapist *should* do internal jaw work. The masseter should be worked externally and internally, and the lateral pterygoid can only be worked well internally.

curlysue, it was so funny to read back over that and remember how I felt! I ended up loving CT.

RB, that's so interesting to know! Getting referred for physical therapy stems from a stopped up ear that medications aren't helping and when I asked my ENT about a knot in my neck (on the very off chance it was ear related) she asked me if I clinch my teeth and that problems in the jaw can directly affect the ear and neck. Today was only my second visit so he's slowly introducing me to things to do at home. I'm supposed to do heat, cold, and massage in and out and repeat a few times (I may have that out of order, I don't have my paper in front of me). When he showed me the inside massage it hurt getting up in there like that with my thumb, definitely not something that can be done from the outside so I certainly see how it could be beneficial, I just had no idea that was a treatment! It made me realize just how tender my jaw is that wasn't evident from the outside massage. He also gave me yellow dot stickers to place around the house to remind myself to relax my jaw and stop clinching. I should just paper the entire house with dots because I catch myself constantly clinching all day. I get bad headaches too, but I think it's coming from my neck.

I also have a 20 year problem with neck pain, but that's a whole other story.

I never got any emails regarding that craigslist ad I suspected my friend of posting, so I'm letting him off the hook!

Mostly because the other potential reason for the lack of emails is that even creepy craigslist men aren't interested. I refuse to accept that, yet.

so when I go to parties and drink a little bit I act pretty silly, but what is annoying is that I'm actually acting how I act around people I'm close with...which is like a drunk.

Does anyone else like that?

I mean if I'm with my friends I act like an idiot, and dance, and become clumsy, and do stupid stuff but I'm sober.

And I act exactly the same at a party when I drink a little.

But if I don't drink. I act like a mute robot with people.

You are the sweetest, CC! I'll take the "cute" comment - I am no longer opposed to it!

Thank goodness for all of my honorary curly big sisters!

I used to be introduced to new people, by my friends, as...

If you hear any weird sounds, noises, impersonations, evil laughter, squeaking, or screaming or see someone dance by at the speed of light with a rose in her mouth... This is the culprit.

So I guess the answer is yes.

Saria, do you not like Boston, or is this post vacation response? I'm asking because my daughter is seriously considering a school near Boston for college. I'm a little concerned that she will be in a bit of a culture shock after six years in SoCal. (not to mention the weather.)

The main difference is I rarely drink anymore because I am even stranger sober. Actually, I am ready for bed after a beer or two these days (yawn) unless 'the mood' hits. No one is safe when the mood hits.

Murrrtutles,
I kind of know what you mean. I don't drink at company functions anymore but no one can tell the difference when we're on the dance floor. I'm all out and having fun. But let it be a quiet, subdued function where I'm afraid of sticking out and I'm quiet as a mouse in slippers.

My mouth has no filter and I know no stranger when I'm drinking. Sober? Give me a wall to decorate and call me a flower.

I feel like I need to say something and I just don't know what it is.
