She got a new pillow a few days ago, and (according to her doctor), it triggered TMJ in her jaw- she woke up a couple of hours after falling asleep 3 nights ago when she slept on her new pillow, with extreme pain in her jaw on one side, and difficulty opening her mouth.
The next morning she had a hard time eating, and has had constant pain in her jaw, and pain when touching it, and since then, she’s also had a bad headache that refuses to be relieved.
She says this is why she’s had a hard time helping Sushi and me post. We’re not buying it- because she still drinks her coffee and lemon water and eats ice cream just fine.
I’ve been telling Sushi we may need to trade the Can Opener in for a newer model, but she says “Why? Her hands still work, and she still feeds us.”
We’re going to have a serious talk with that human this morning- because “her headache” is apparently making her slack off on other things too – (like handing out our treats in a timely manner). The doctor says this could last 3-4 weeks – but I don’t think we can.
She was advised to try acupuncture if it lasts longer than 4 weeks (WE’ll DIE)!
So Sushi and I are sharpening our claws – we’re going to try some “acupuncture” of our own! 😹
