I have had botox for tmj and it really helps me with the jaw pain. I think dealing with so much pain everyday so cant help but clinch on jaws. I think this is why we have jaw pain.

I have heard that yoga is good for pain. There is a yoga thing on Roku that has good yoga with gentle stretching and it works the whole body. I need to do it all the time. I found out my knee pain was from walking wrong. I was favoring that side when I was in pain and now I have learned how to shift the weight and I don't have the pain anymore. I learned that during exercise test at Mercy Hospital. I am just glad it isn't bad anymore. Now if the dog walks on me in the night, yes there is pain but it has lessened by about 70%.

I had and have both Botox and dermal fillers and I had no reaction to them at all. It did what it was supposed to do and my body look to it well and it had no adverse reaction to the fibro. Obviously can't say how your body will react, Hope it works out for you. Hugs.

Well as u know this is not medical advise. It is only my experience. The neurologist I went to said that with chronic pain most people will not be willing to exercise when they are in pain. Sounds reasonable to me since most of us have a lot of painful days. However it has been suggested that yoga is good for us because it is a slow stretch. For those of us that are a little more on the plump side exercising in a swimming pool helps because it takes the pressure off our joints. Walking in the pool isn't as hard for me as trying to walk on the street or a treadmill. My toes start going numb on my feet and burning plus back pain. My doc put me on trazadone for sleep because when we start losing sleep that opens a whole new set of problems. I empathize with your neck and shoulder pain. I went for years with same problems. Had medication, massage, injections, and finally surgery in both shoulders. They said the neck pain was from my shoulders. So as u can see we are quite the problem patient or we can say we are just unique. I have had surgery on my right knee and now a year later it has started hurting again. So guess I am not exercising enough. lol. Good luck to you. Chin up.....

I don't write much. I've never been on a message board and am not to tech savvy. I started out with unbearable pain all over, panic attacks, no sleep, fatigue, miserable focused pain in neck in shoulders,and on and on. Now I'm on low dose of lyrica and exercise and it's a manageable pain. But lately my knee has been giving me problems. Pain with my walking, then numbness. Anyone else have experience with this.
