Vnch, do you work with a physical therapist and/or speech language pathologist?

I personally found speech therapy a waste of time and money.
I am taking Baclofen 10 mg 2-3 times per day. This helps keeping my jaw loose for eating and speaking.
I’m also getting Botox injections to reduce the severity of my migraines. It may also be helping my jaw tightness but can’t say for sure yet.
