update on nl appt

I had my appt finally today. Dr cooper is a spectacular neurologist. I learned i have tmj on both sides of jaw. I have autonomic dysfunction, and occipital nerve damage that he believes may have been worsened by my surgery. He put me on magnesium and cymbalta. If i decide, i have the option of gettin the occipital nerve block shots. Undecided on that yet?! He said research it before i decide. He encourages me to keep learning about my condition and i told him i post on here as like therapy. He said thats great. Real understanding dr, thank god.
