I was starting to wonder if I had fibro because of my issues with TMJ, and also because my mom has started to show signs of it as well.
Neither one of us has been diagnosed yet but I am in the process. My family doctor just recently ran tests(sed. rate and something else) to rule out lupus, rhuematoid arthritis, etc. Everything came back ok so she is sending me to a rhuematologist because they deal with fibro.
My symptoms are mainly joint pain, especially my knees and hips, I can't sit in one position too long or I get stiff and achey.(especially when its cold or rainy). And fatigue.
There are supposed to be 18 different pressure points located on the body where if you push on them it is painful. I guess if you have 11 of these pressure points you are said to have fibro. I definitely have the ones at the knees and hips. You can do a search on google and should be able to find a site that shows the locations of these pressure points.
My moms symptoms are stiffness and a hot burning pain that moves around her body.
Other symptoms are IBS(irritable bowel syndrome),sensitivity to light and noise,inability to enter deep level sleep(stage 4),painful menstrual periods,memory impairment,muscle twitching, I'm sure there are more that are not coming to mind right now. And of course alot of ppl have both fibro and TMJD. Are you considering the possibility that you have it?
Sorry for the long post, hope I answered your question.
