One more thing

Please pray for my headaches. I am going on day 8 with one and it is draining. I think I jaw clench at night because every morning I wake to a killer headache. Sometimes it will get better during the day but never completely goes away. I am praying God would give me relief.

PS: I have tried sleeping with a mouthguard but it makes me gag uncontrolably and I just can't do it.

Angel, I will pray for you...for headaches to go away and for those precious boys to come soon!! I struggled with the same thing (clenching) and now have a VERY small mouth guard that I wear...if you're interested let me know and I'll share the info. with you. It's helped a TON.

Hey Angel~ might have some solutions for you...

Try clenching your teeth...feel along your jaw that thick muscle is where you want to be. Take your pointer and third finger push in and then open and close your mouth.

Another thing to try is take your pointer finger inside his mouth and then feel along your cheek til you get to a ropey muscle that runs from the top of your mouth to the bottom. Run your finger horizontally over the muscle starting at the top and moving down.

I used to have headaches like this too...this helped me a ton! Dont get me wrong it is going to hurt...but do it a few times a day and when a headache sets on...I pray it helps.

Let me know if you want to try some other ideas too.

Father, you have declared yourself our shelter, you have said that we might have rest in your shadow, you proclaim that you alone are the place of safety and refuge, you have promised to deliver from trap and every deadly disease, and that these promises are our armor and protection (Ps. 91). Dear Father, be all of this now for Angel, keep her in perfect peace, take away the headache and the pain, never to return again. You have the power, please apply it. In the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, who applies all these promises to your daughter Angel, amen. (Pastor Matthew)

Oh Angel, I am so sorry you are dealing with headaches. I struggled with them for several months. For jaw clenching have you tried an NTI? Google it. Brandon's dentist dad fitted me with one. It is totally different than a mouth guard as it goes over your front teeth. Check it out.
Also check out an occipivot sp? I use one all the time for headaches. It is great to use thing other than meds and I have had MAJOR success. There has also been major prayer. Our perfect healing God has created great people to create great medical helps! Hope this helps you as it really helped me!!!
