TMJ issues: Wow at her age she has already had surgery and Botox. CBT is a definite - so yes contact a good neuro- psychologist. You may want to consider possible PRP injections (stem cell) to see if this works better.

Would try: Have found Biofeedback Therapy, acupuncture, and Cognitive-Behavioral approaches to be very valuable. Sometimes, a second opinion from an Oral Surgeon can also point to a new direction.
