I have TMJ disorder & FMS fibromyalgia. Someone from a FMS board sent me here because of my question. I experience what almost feels like a panic attack, they normally happen when driving (have not been driving) or being driven by somone else. My husband took me to the emerg department during one of these attacks & they did not think it was a panic attack my pulse, respirations & BP were all normal. When I have one of these attacks I feel very dizzy & very nauseated & I feel like I am going to pass out. I know someone with TMJ problems who used to pass out at work. The drs still say they do not know what is causing these attacks, I am wondering if I am clenching my jaw & putting stress on the nerves in that area. I also have been in 5 MVA's in just over 2 yrs that were not my fault & am fighting with the insurance company therefore under a lot of stress. If you are not sure if you have TMJ problems your dentist should be able to check for this or send you to someone who can. I wonder if anyone else experiences this dizziness?
Best of luck,

: I have also had a period every 10 days for the last 3 months. Has any one else experienced this?
