fibromyalgia and full mouth tooth pain

I was diagnosed 27 years ago with fibrositis,now fibromyalgia, I have high blood pressure and am on a low grade blood pressure medication, about a year ago I started having toothpain, happening just once in awhile, and now it is almost daily , mostly early and late in the day, it is like a full mouth toothache that lasts about 5 minutes. sometimes to the point of tears. but then it goes away. Is this related to the fibromyalgia? or possibly the blood pressure? my doctor has never heard of it. Not a specialist, though. Aspirin helps, but makes me sick to the stomache if I take it to often.

Re: fibromyalgia and full mouth tooth pain

Welcome Pamela! I am Pamela also! I haven't had this full mouth tooth pain thing. Give the other girls a couple of days to answer since it's a holiday. I have had some mouth issues, though and I think those are related to the medication I am taking (Savella). I have had lots of little white bumps that are very painful on my tongue and ulcers on the inside of my mouth. They do seem to be getting better though.

Have you checked with a dentist? Just a shot in the dark, it sounds like it could possible be TMJ. Have you ever looked into that?

Whatever it is, I wish you all the best in finding a solution for it! Also, for the pain, have you tried Advil Liquigels? They are wonderful!

Happy New Year!

Hugs,

Pam

I've felt that kind of pain before, it radiates from my back but is extremely painful. Could be a muscle/jaw problem (TMJ) though, don't let a dentist pull your teeth though cause of widespread tooth pain, but it may not hurt having one check you out. How about chest pain, do you get it? If you do, maybe it's being caused by a heart condition, especially since you already have high blood pressure issues. I also had an anti-anxiety medication in the past cause my face to spasm. Nothing else I can think of that I know of that does that. But yea, I'd say doc figure it out buddy. I know how bad that hurts. Don't take aspirin too much if it's non-coated, it'll cause little tiny holes throughout your insides.

Re: fibromyalgia and full mouth tooth pain

FMS and TMJ go hand in hand together. I've had sensitive teeth for so long I don't remember when I wasn't using toothpaste for sentitive teeth. I refused to have dental work done unless I was put under because the freezing didn't work...then a new dentist figured out how to get it to work. I've had full-blown TMJ for a few months now with painfull teeth, my mouth constantly waters (better than dry mouth!), painful jaws and ears; I can't put ear buds in my ears for my iPod so had to buy ear phones. I have chest pain too and have been through all the heart tests.

Even with my GP knowing I have FMS she didn't put ear aches and painful teeth together and come up with TMJ. See a specialist; mine said "you have TMJ of course, nearly everyone who has FMS does.

Good luck Pamela.

Smile Re: fibromyalgia and full mouth tooth pain

thanks so much for the reply, I realized after looking up TMJ that it was probably my problem, I didn't realize that I was cracking my jaw as much as I was, and have had to restrain myself and think about what I was doing. I have only done it once today and have had little tooth pain, my jaw slides side to side and pops and cracks, I am double jointed. thanks so much, Pamela57

Re: fibromyalgia and full mouth tooth pain

Welcome Pamela! I too am yet another Pamela!

I have mouth pain and it is mostly on the left side of my mouth. It most likely is TMJ and my dentist has looked at my mouth and tells me that nothing is wrong there!

Re: fibromyalgia and full mouth tooth pain

"Nothing wrong" ... Doesn't that statement make you want to just box their ears?! Of course there's something wrong. Pain is the body's signal to the brain that something is wrong. Its no wonder some of us start believing all of these "professionals" who tell us that we're neurotic and hypochondriacs when they have no idea what's wrong.

That's why they invented the word Fibromyalgia, so they wouldn't have to blunty tell us that. LOL.

Well there's other things I forgot to mention, sinus or nasal problems can direct pain there. I think an MRI will pick up actual problems with TMJ. I'd ask for a CT or MRI of my facial area to see if they can find out what's going on. That would pick up any sinus issues or possible tumors also, it could rule out quite a few things.

Re: fibromyalgia and full mouth tooth pain

I had an MRI last May from my brain down to my lumbar spine - it picked up everything but the TMJ, even my deviated septum and lots of strange things in my spine I can't even pronounce. An xray of my jaws in Sept. showed "not much of anything". My dentist thinks the TMJ is from a upper left molar that I had extracted in Feb/08 because that's the side where the worst symptoms showed up this summer. The initial symptoms go back many more years than that though, I just didn't know, like everything else. I think its one of those things that they have to be looking for in an MRI.

Re: fibromyalgia and full mouth tooth pain

Hi Pamela & Fibro Friends,

I just wanted to jump in here and tell you I have been experiencing problems with my teeth over the last year. Initially, I was only having sensitive teeth and my dentist suggested I try using sensodyne toothpaste. It has helped quite a bit but I still get this all-over type pain. Now I have pain in a tooth that has already had a root cananl and a crown. What bothers me the most is that there aren't any "triggers". It would make more sense if drinking hot/cold beverage would trigger it but that's not the case. The pain just comes and eventually goes without anything to trigger it. I am going to ask my doctor if this is a symptom of Fribo. I will keep you posted. In the meantime, you may want to try the sensodyne toothpaste.
