Dr. Whitley, APPRECIATION FOR THE USE OF THE MOUTHPIECE. In September I came to see Dr. Whitley. I have fibromyalgia and my pain levels had been about 9/10 over a period of years. He fitted me with a temporary bottom mouthpiece. I immediately felt some relief and by the very next day my pain was about 4/10.
When I was fitted for a top mouthpiece it felt like I was breathing through an oxygen mask and wanted to sleep. I went home and slept for 4 hours. My pain went down to a 2/10.
Since fitting the mouthpiece I have experienced some tightness in my jaw with a slight headache along with a few mouth sores, but every day I get more used to the mouthpiece and my pain is down to 1/10. My blood pressure has been exceptionally low all my life, and now for the first time it is over 100. This has reduced the amount of food I have to eat to keep up the energy levels in my body. I am thankful for the opportunity to walk with this mouthpiece and be free from pain.
