Gum pain and jaw pain a pain.

Postby gothchick » Sat Feb 13, 2010 4:49 am

Ive been suffering with bad gum pain and jaw pain a lot recently. Is it the hot weather making my firbromyalgia flare up? Is anyone else having trouble with their gums or jaws? Is this pain an overlapping condition of fibromyalgia?

Sounds like it could be TMJD, a lot of people with FM sufer from this.

Is the HOT weather making you flare :shock: did you mean cold? :lol:

As Gill says sounds like TMJ which is clenching/grinding and stiffness of the jaw&neck

Cold weather & stress will flare TMJ up or any over chewing like gum/crusty rolls lol

I wear a mouth guard by the dentist to help ease it

Thanks for the help. I forgot to say I live in New Zealand which is why I asked about the hot weather. It the moment it's thirty degrees.

A lot of people find the heat helps their pain levels. I find it causes me to have increased fatigue and exhaustion :(
