"A team of researchers lead by Axel Wollmera and Tillmann Krugerb, based at the Psychiatric Hospital of the University of Basel, Switzerland and the Department of Psychiatry, Medical School Hannover, Germany, have indeed turned conventional thinking on its head.

The subjects recruited for this clinical trial were suffering from long-standing low mood - on average 16 years of recurrent episodes of depression with the current episode lasting an average of almost 30 months, and they were selected as a group unconcerned with their facial appearance (they would not have picked 'botox' if given a choice)."

Elizabeth Wharry said she lived with the pain of Temporomandibular joint disorder for decades.

"From the time I was nine-years-old, and that was 45 years ago, it was pain from one degree or another," said Wharry. "It was locking up. It was meals where you could hear cracking and snapping."

She said she was constantly chewing to tire out the muscles, to get relief, but gained weight. Like other TMJ patients, she tried every remedy. Nothing worked.

The Botox injections are given around the head and face.  Wharry said the Botox treatment have helped a lot. More importantly the pain is gone, no more popping noises during dinner and she sleeps better.
