: : : Dear friend: Sorry you have had to endure so much at once! If only we could schedule our disorders and give ourselves lots of breathing room in between! I have fibromyalgia and what is sometimes called myofascial pain: the chewing muscles are in spasm, grinding and contracting all the time. I do not have trig-pts: is it possible you have facial myalgia like me? Are you pleased with your dr and getting help with your pain? God bless, Al firstname.lastname@example.org
: : Does this illness manifest itself in clicking , grinding and clenching one's teeth awake and asleep? I have recently been diagnosed with fibromylogia and I recently started clicking my teeth together and sometimes grinding them awake and in my sleep. If so is there any way to stop it. I do not want to add gum disease to my other ailments. April
: April, I wear a mouth guard that the dentist made to fit my mouth. The grinding will cause tooth ware down, muscle pain, jaw pain, head aches and other problems if you let it go. Call your dentist's office and speak to him or her about this. If it were me I'd call monday. This is a very simple thing to stop. the problem. If I grind while driving I put my tounge between my teeth and that stops me. Good luck and take care, Kim
