I first had an attack 3 years ago and my doctor at the time diagnosed it exactly especially when I described my jaw going into spasms, although I felt dreadful he was able to reassure me that there was nothing seriously wrong. These attacks would later occur at a much lesser level several times a day for weeks and then nothing for weeks. At the time I was under a huge amount of stress and not coping at all. Later I started suffering from anxiety attacks instead which would still go for weeks with spinning head nausea and an overwhleming sense of dread. I have had tests to eliminate any diseases and now am learning to manage theses attacks. I have since had to see a different doctor who is not a all sypathetic and wants me to go on anti depressants, I don't think this is the answer for me. I found sessions with an oesteopath very helpful . I am more aware of my diet and when I feel an attack coming on I tell it to go away, this works surprisingly well. I do more excercise now and try to pamper myself more and learn to relax. I don't think it will go away entirely but I am learning to live with it.
