Re: Mild chest discomfort...stress?
Thanks for the reply.
I was fine up until a month ago or so. My doctor gave me some Tylenol with codeine as a temporary pain control just to help me get through my wedding day on Saturday and enjoy our 2 week honeymoon in Maui. My TMJ gives me terrible headaches, jaw aches, ear aches, etc.
I have been doing some research and it is more common for people with TMJ to have fibromyalgia (and vice versa) which can cause chest discomfort, heart palps, etc. especially if costochondritis (inflamation in the rib tissue) is part of it which is common with Fibro. My doctor has not ruled out fibro with me yet as we are going to continue to do more when I return home at the end of July.
Everyone seems to think that I am just "stressed and excited" which is true. I have been through a lot this last year. My finace is a teacher and he had the class from hell this year too so I feel his stress and both of us got very little sleep this school year.
