Tmj?

Tmj?

Hello there, who suffers from TMJ as well? I have been having some weird throat symptoms and I'm trying to decide if they are related to the TMJ/fibro or something else! I will sometimes have trouble swallowing or feel like something is stuck in my throat. My throat muscles in my neck also feel very tight. Finally, I get this strange feeling when I swallow like there is something scratchy stuck at the back of my throat. Could it be nerve related? Thanks for the help!

Could FM Cause Vision To Be Blurred Or Cause One To Become Blind?

Could FM Cause Vision To Be Blurred Or Cause One To Become Blind?

I’m recently diagnosed with FM after searching for a long time with what’s going on with me. I have more blood work pending to see if FM is secondary to something else. My doctor recently put me on amitriptyline for pain, which I’m not finding any relief with. Could my blurred vision be caused by the amitriptyline? I never had vision problem before.

I have days when I just don’t seem to be able to get my vision to clear up. It’ll drive ya nuts.

Does Anyone Find Their Handwriting Severely Affected By Fibromyalgia?

Does Anyone Find Their Handwriting Severely Affected By Fibromyalgia?

Sorry about all the questions lately, I guess I'm just trying to figure out what is Fibromyalgia and what may be something else! I usually have very neat printing. Even though I have a constant tremor, my printing is extremely neat. However, I have days where the first line I write might be fine but after that you can see my printing degenerate to the point of eventually being chicken scrawl. Sometimes I can't even read it myself. Last night,… read more

Claritin D To Reduce Pain Level From Fibro

Has anyone else noticed a reduced pain level from taking Claritin D or any oyher sort of antihistamine?

I am trying to rule something out with my own personal experience. You see I deal with multiple health issues, and I have used Claritin D for P.O.I.S. (post orgasmic illness syndrome). I noticed recently when I take an atihistamine at night for P.O.I.S. or allergies my pain level is lower.

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced the same thing, and if you feel… read more

Fibro And Dental Treatment

Fibro And Dental Treatment

Hi,
I've just joined here. I got a Fibro diagnosis 2yrs ago after a prolonged dental issue which left me completely exhausted for weeks after the tooth was finally extracted. Since lockdown I've had ongoing issues with another tooth, and long and short I got root canal yesterday and feel like every muscle in my body is aching with the extreme tiredness kicking in again. My question is... Does this happen to anyone else, do you have any tips? I'm not on any meds except cocodamol for the… read more
