TMJ Treatment?

TMJ Treatment?

I was diagnosed with TMD and given Melixicam (NSAID) with Pepcid since I told the doctor I'd previously had an ulcer. (not good advice) It didn't help and just aggravated my stomach. I was then told I should see a dentist that specializes in TMJ.

Does Acupuncture Help With Fibromyalgia Symptoms?

Sciatica

Sciatica

Have been having terrible pain in my groin and down my leg. I thought it was just the fibro. Hubby says it's sciatica. It's not constant though but it has been getting more frequent. It started when I tried line dancing. Has anyone else had anything similar?

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

I always thought that Sciatica went down the buttock and the back of the leg.

Painless Twitching

Painless Twitching

Does anyone experience random muscle twitching throughout your body? I used to get them on my eyes but now I get them on my legs and arms. They are not painful and not cramping or involuntary movement. It almost feels like a vibration. Anyone experience this?

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

@A MyFibroTeam Member @A MyFibroTeam Member I've experienced both of what you each described. Both are normal for fibro
