I get alot of facial pain due to the TMJ I also have sinus problems with rhinitas and the post nasal drip and hayfever :roll: this combination doesnt help matters.

I would see your GP to rule out any other conditions like TMJ/sinuses and neuralgia before its put down to fibro.

An easy test for trigeminal neuralgia pain is to touch the affected area softly. Then touch the affected area firmly. Which hurts?

Hi Mand

The only time I've had something like this was when I had really bad sinus problems a few years ago. My eyes would swell up, look really puffy and sore to the touch. My forehead was the same too.

Eventually got sorted by the GP for my sinuses and so far it hasn't returned.

If this is something new to you like Lisa said, a trip to the Gp just to double check. Although a lot of what we feel and get can be FM related it sometimes isn't and it's always worth getting it checked.

I used those Cool patches you could get to put on my forhead when it was really bad for me and they helped a lot. Can't remember the actual name of them though sorry - hope you know what I mean lol. I also put ice cubes in a face towel and help them over my eyes for a few minutes to ease the swelling.

Good Luck
