Finding Her Escape from Migraines and Jaw Pain

Kathy was 8 years old when an accident in a pool rendered her jaw nearly immovable. 50 years of pain followed with multiple migraines a week, until one day she experienced a miracle. Read Transcript


It was difficult to eat at times.

It was constantly clicking.

NARRATOR: Kathy [INAUDIBLE] suffered

with jaw pain for years.

It started with a pool accident when she was eight.

I want to jump in the pool.

I spun around, and the lower part of my chin

caught the edge, the concrete edge of the pool.

NARRATOR: The cut on her chin healed, but the pain in her jaw

never went away.

A few years later, she learned she had TMJ,

so 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.

NARRATOR: So Kathy figured it was something

she'd have to live with.

I was eating soft food.

I couldn't eat anything hard, or anything like ice or anything

that was crunchy.

I was suffering with headaches.

I was taking Excedrin or aspirin just about every day.

I would have migraines at least once a week.

NARRATOR: The pain meds helped Kathy function,

so she kept taking them, and ate soft food for nearly 50 years.

But one morning, she could barely move her mouth at all.

I couldn't even brush my teeth.

I couldn't open it enough to get a toothbrush in.

NARRATOR: For two days, the only food Kathy could eat

was in squeezable pouches.

Then, while watching "The 700 Club,"

Kathy saw Terry Meeuwsen praying.

There's someone else.

You have a problem with your jaw, and it's out of alignment.

God's healing that.

I claimed it immediately, 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, a little, little by little

further and further.

I was like, oh my goodness.

This is me.

This is me.

God's healing me, and it was a wonderful feeling.

NARRATOR: 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.

NARRATOR: 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,

because 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.
