Dr. Sims or Dr. Stack

In Oct. 2009 I had a wisdom tooth extracted and within a few months I lost my ability to speak properly. I used to do voiceovers for a living so I was very aware of my speech. I've not had success with any orthotics for tmj displacement which I have nor any other devices or medical care. Botox in the pyteragoids (sp) may have helped somewhat or I've learned to adapt. The only thing that has shown drastic improvement is using Ambien. I take it and I can speak within an hour. It lasts for an hour or more then back to the spazzy tongue. Recently my speech therapist found Dr. Stack and Dr. Sims research online. The videos were hard to believe, but I've been told the same thing about my video on Youtube (search ambien voiceover and you'll see). We tried the tongue depressor method and it actually worked! So I'm scheduled to see Dr. Sims soon. Wondering if anyone else has seen Sims or Stack or the guy in Cali who's doing similar treatment. I've already spent thousands on appliances and am so nervous about spending more money that I can't afford to waste on useless orthotics. At one point I even had a dentist in FL who I'd spent thousands with, ask me after his treatment was failing, "Why are you choosing to speak this way!?" If you suffer from some mysterious nervous system disorder you know how frustrating it can be getting help. Let me know soon. I'm eager to discuss how your treatment went if you've seen these docs in the MD/DC area.Thanks
