I am hoping I am in the right place as I haven't had a diagnosis yet. About 3 weeks ago I felt a bit fluey. A couple of days later I developed TMJ and I felt like I had been whacked all over with a baseball bat! The pain hasn't left me and I am also getting muscle twitches under my eye. I have a permanent headache and my chest is particularly sore. I am so tired all the time too. My bloods have come back clear and I am due to see the doctor again tomorrow. I have looked up FM and it all sounds familiar but I know doctors don't like you to self diagnose. I think she is going to blame it on the menopause and I know it isn't that. I am so disheartened and I just want to know if it is FM or not. Does it sound like it to other sufferers?

Sorry Podret we couldnt possibly say its FM, you need to have suffered with symptoms for a lot longer than 3 weeks, more like 6 months. There are a lot of tests needed to rule out other conditions that can have similar symptoms to FM and all this takes time, some members have waited years before getting a definite diagnosis.

I'm with denys podret. You need to be seen by a medical professional to find out what is causing your problems, we can't comment as to what it is. When anyone asks us if what they are experiencing could be FM, going to see your GP. I suppose you could raise the subject of FM, but as denys has already said, you would need to have been experiencing symptoms and problems for much longer than the 3 weeks you've said about.

:wave:

I am a TMJ sufferer myself and the symptoms you feel are IMO of TMJ not sure if its fibro, as the others have said you would have needed to be having symptoms for more then 6months.

TMJ will also make pain and soreness in your chest, when you clench your teeth it tightens all the muscles around your neck/face and pulls your chest muscles.

I would advice the dentist to make you a mouth guard, this helps relaxs the muscle and to prevent clenching and in my experience the guard helped me with 50% of TMJ symptoms.

TMJ causes facial pain and tension, like you i have eye twitches and pain along with everything else

I also advice an indian head massage as TMJ can also tighten your scalp. This technique helps as the massage the facial muscles/neck/shoulders/scalp and jaw

you can also ask to be refered to a specialist in TMJ whom iv also seen for further investigations as help with symptoms

They will give you exercises to do and talk about medication as TMJ can be so severe you may need a muscle relaxant to help.

I find making sure you wear a scarf in cold and windy weather, and a hot wheat bag wrapped around your neck with your jaw resting on it.

TMJ is not to be taken lighlty, iv suffered some horric symptoms like not being able to swollow, feels like a golf ball is in your throat, severe chronic migrains and fatigue,vision problems, hearing / ear pain, and many times i have had to rush to my dentish as my jaw has locked up.

I hope that has helped :goodluck1:
