I have put a link up on Bells Palsy, for people who dont know what it is. :-
click here

Bells palsy is inflammation of the face but Fibro does not cause inflammation, so i are not sure if it is connected to Fibro.
I dont suffer with it but i do know of others who have face pain and twitches.

I hope it does not last to long. :hugs:

Never heard of it connected with FM sorry and as Shaz says there is no inflammation with FM so it's mnot a symptom of it.

Hi
i suffered with facial pain numbness swelling etc before i was diagnosed with FM to be honest this was the start of it all for me or at least when i can pin point starting on my decline.
I started with the face thing which then went to my neck and shoulder then all 3 at once then gradually my whole body.
i had this in my face for about 6 months at the beginning but not had it since so not sure if its connected or not.
I was tested for bells palsy (my mum had it when she was younger) so i had a good idea what it was .

Hope this helps
