​Shot is the key word to your stress reduction. Somebody needs to be shot.

​You won't get anything out of the first session but if you can develop a comfort level -- you're on the fast track for subsequent sessions -- where you will see gain.

​There can be some very effective techniques to stress management that professionals can help with.

There can also be some mild anti-anxiety meds that can make a big difference.

Be open, honest, and detailed.  And as Dotman basically said, it's not an insta-cure; it's a process.  But it can be a very worthwhile one.

EDIT: Props to you for going and doing this.

​...see if he or she can recommend a meditation practice, which works pretty well for stress, including the clenching/TMJ thing.

​Yes.  Meditation is an amazing stress relief for me.  Once you get a little practice, it takes very little time to reach that relaxed state and BP and heart rate drop like a stone.  Very refreshing as well.

​I second this, but docs who are pill happy are unlikely to embrace Eastern practices.  It's a shame that Western physicians are so rigid.

​Some good practices go with one person for therapy, another for meds.  It means that if you need meds, you'll have someone dedicated to helping with dosages, side effects, etc. - but you'll have someone else helping you with yourself, therapy-wise, including anything from breathing exercises to life activities and seeing things in a new way.
