  1. andrewsomatict Dilemma: NUCCA believes fixing neck will fix the lower body, PT believes fixing the pelvis will fix neck. I need to decide. Who to believe? »

  7. andrewsomatict Symptoms are gradually getting better. Dysphagia is gone and jaw doesn't hurt- T on the right is still there but a 1/10. Here's to hoping :D »

  11. andrewsomatict Got back from the NUCCA chiro, felt great and my C1 was realigned, doing my best to make sure it holds. Will withhold PT for the meantime. »

  12. andrewsomatict My dysphagia is gone! Was watching Shang-chi when something just snapped back lol. T is still there but a 0.5/10. Trying to control the TMJ. »

  13. andrewsomatict Another thing to consider would be dominant side chewing- which might cause TMJ -> T/ETD. I chew more on my right and have TMJ and T there. »

    Maybe just keep an eye on it but not to the point where you're obsessing over it mate. I find that focusing on my T makes it worse.

  18. andrewsomatict T has been gone for about 2 hours now, didn't know I'd enjoy the silence so much. I expect it'll go back soon but happy I have had a respite »
