Pain/Aches In Teeth And Jaw

Postby Woofwoof » Fri Jun 22, 2012 11:25 am

Does anyone else get intense pain/aches in their teeth and jaw?

Today the pain/aches in my teeth and jaw are just unbearable, but have been bad for the last few weeks. :( I have issues with TMJ and have in the past been fitted with splints, both flexible and rigid - the tension in my jaw was so bad I literally broke the rigid splint!! :shock: The flexible splint offered no relief whatsoever. I see a dentist regularly (latest appointment in April) and she says there are no issues with my teeth that would cause the constant pain/aches.

I have had to take Anadin this morning to try and ease the pain, which means I cannot now take the Naproxen I was prescribed on Wednesday. The Anadin has taken the edge off but I'm still in so much discomfort. I just read online about people using TENS for similar issues.

I currently have a diagnosis of CFS but have recently been referred to a rheumatologist as a chiro suspects I have FM too.
Are these symptoms FM related or purely down to TMJ issues?

Has anyone got any suggestions/advice?
Obsessively opposed to the typical!!

HI
I have never had any problems so far with my teeth & jaw but TMJ does seem to be quite common with fibro, we have had a few posts up about it. If you put in TMJ into the search bar you will get all the topics come up.

Hello there,

I was diagnosed with TMJ in the past before my FMS was formally and officially diagnosed.
However, the TMJ type face and jaw pain differs to the teeth and jaw pain I get as part of fibro.

I'm sorry that you're suffering from that, as I know how awful it is and also as I don't really have a solution or tip to help you.
On the days I get badly aching teeth and jaws, I basically just try to eat soft foods and avoid talking or chewing. Sometimes I'll take painkillers, which take the edge off the pain, but other than I don't know of anything to help me...

I have also seen the dentists on a number of occasions and I had 2 extractions (1 wisdom tooth and 1 molar), as they thought that might help. Unfortunately, those extractions didn't make any difference for the face/teeth/jaw pains at all.
I'd recommend you see your dentist, as there might be something underlying, but be wary of extractions...
