Finding Her Escape from Migraines and Jaw Pain

“It was difficult to eat at times. It was constantly clicking.”

Kathy suffered with jaw pain for years. It started with a pool accident when she was eight.

“I jumped—went to jump in the pool, I spun around and the lower part of my chin caught the edge, the concrete edge, of the pool, aid Kathy.”

The cut on her chin healed, but the pain in her jaw never went away. A few years later she learned she had TMJ. The doctor ordered a mouthpiece for her to wear to help align her jaw.

“I was supposed to wear it as much as possible. But it didn’t work. And the doctor suggested surgery and I was not going to do surgery, said Kathy.”

So Kathy figured it was something she’d have to live with.

“I was eating soft food. I couldn’t eat anything hard or, you know, anything like ice. You know, anything that was crunchy. I was suffering with headaches. And I was taking Excedrin or aspirin just about every day. I would have migraines at least once a week, said Kathy.”

The pain meds helped Kathy function. So she lived with them and ate soft food for nearly 50 years, until one morning, she could barley move her mouth at all.   

“It was so bad I was remembering now, I couldn’t even brush my teeth. Because you couldn’t—I couldn’t open it enough to get a toothbrush in.”

For two days, the only food Kathy could eat was in squeezable pouches. Then, while watching The 700 Club, Kathy saw Terry Meeuwsen begin praying.  

“Terry said that there is a person in the audience with jaw pain. And that the Lord is healing you. I claimed it immediately. I put my hand on my cheek while she was praying. And I hesitated for a second. And then I put my hand on my jaw and I opened my jaw and I was like wow. And I kept opening it, a little bit, little by little further and further. I was like oh my goodness, this is me, this is me. You know, God’s healing me. And it was really—it was a wonderful feeling, said Kathy.”

Kathy’s jaw was healed.

“The next day and to this day I’ve never had any more pain with it. I don’t have the headaches anymore. And I can open my mouth as wide as I need to. Now I’ll eat anything and not even think twice about it.”

Today Kathy’s so grateful to be able to eat whatever she wants and enjoy life to the fullest free of migraines.

“Don’t be afraid to ask God for healing. Don’t think that you have to deserve it first. God loves us all where we’re at, in spite of our shortcomings. And He wants us to be healthy and He wants us to be whole. And first and foremost He wants us to be happy and enjoy our life, said Kathy.”
