Re: What is he looking for?
Yes, he's the one who told me that nearly everyone with FMS has TMJ; he has a double speciality-rheumatology and internal medicine - I've never had a more compassionate and thorough doctor. Yes, I trust him completely. There was a little box he checked off for the x-rays that said something about tying in TMJ with the hips. It kind of makes sense; if your gait is off-kilter over a minor hip "blip" (sorry), then your whole carriage could be knocked out of whack. I know there's arthritis in my hips and (thinking about it now) my PCP was worried about how bad it is in my right hip. The fact that the arthritis is everwhere is why she sent me to this doctor.
I guess all will be made clear enough eventually, I just wish I had enough education to figure this all out. Next life I guess...lol
