Does Any have fibromylgia and trigeminal neuralgia

I was diagnosed about 2 years ago with fibromylgia. Last week I started with a sharp stabbing pain in my ear. Then the pain extended to the back of my head near my spine. Now the pain is also in front of my ear at my jaw joint and up at my forehead. The pain now is so bad and if I touch any side of my right side od my face the pain feeling like a stabbing pain. I have not been to the doctor yet since it just started last week. Any info or suggestions would be great.

Re: Does Any have fibromylgia and trigeminal neuralgia

Yes i do , both.
Please see a doc soon, my TN only worsened. Pain just became unbearable.
I had to see several specialists before i was diagnosed.
Try not to put this off, i totally understand what you are describing and oh my TN is horrible. The doc that diagnosed me did not know i had fibromyalgia. Long story short, my rheumatologist (for fibro) later said to me , some docs want to throw all the pain at being fibro, good this other doc did not have a clue i have fibromyalgia.

I highly recommend you seeking medical attention very soon.
So sorry you are also having this horrible pain.

Thank you for the info. I plan on calling in the morning since the pain is so bad tonight that I can't even get to sleep.

Re: Does Any have fibromylgia and trigeminal neuralgia

Your welcome and i totally understand.

I can remember how pain went completely into my mouth of burning stabbing pain. My tongue even felt like it was on fire. That's why i highly suggest you going very soon. If you have to see more than 1 doc just keep going so you can get correct diagnosis and some relief.

Good you are calling in the morning.
Hope you get a bit rest this evening.
Take care
