Is this normal?

Postby smartie » Wed Apr 13, 2011 7:15 pm

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone can help me.I have had fm for 13 years, but over the last few weeks my cheeks have felt as though they are on fire and are very red. I am going to see my gp tomorrow but was just wondering if anyone else has had this happen to them. My flare ups are getting more frequent as well, hense seeing the gp.
Any help or guidence would be much appreciated.

Hi Denys,
Thanks for the reply, I know that the doctor will probably say it is to do with the fm, just wondering if anyone else had had these symptems. I guess I will find out tomorrow. I will keep you posted.

Hi smartie funny you should say that, my friend kindly took me to the cinema yesterday and when we came out she asked me if I was teething as one side of my face was really red. It wasn't till I touched it that it felt really sore almost badly sun burned.

Hugs niki xxx

Hi all,
Well I have just been diagnoised with something other than fm!!! I have rosacea which is a long term flushing of the cheeks with no cure, but it can be controlled. She has given me a cream to put on twice a day.

My doctor has also put me on tramacet for pain relief for my fm. I had tried tramadol in the past but it made me very jittery and anxious so I stopped taking it.
The doctor says I should be better on this, I will wait and see.
Thanks for all your support, I'm sending you all :flowers: and :grouphug:

Hi, this had made me think! For years, everyday, just after lunch, like clockwork, my whole face becomes flushed and very hot. Its not roseacia, as its not there all the time. It goes awayafter a few hours. I read that spicy food and alcahol can cause this but I never have either at lunchtime! Just wondered if it could be related to the fibro. xx

Hi there, I was just reading about tempromandibular joint disorder and it says that it can cause pain in the cheek and a burning sensation, maybe that might be what's wrong? :mrgreen:
