diagnosis and treatment

Wait a minute... I have so much to say and no time!! I have TMJ really bad but I didn't realize that all my other aches and pains along with tmj could be something else such as fibro. I'm reading these posts and you all have the sames problems I have but never thought to mention it because I just thought it was a part of life. I mean I'm only 32 but I just figured that I was just aging faster with joint and muscle pains all over; never thought it could be an actual problem. My husband jokingly has a list of all my problems; he thinks that I just try and make up a new one every few months but the reality is that I truly have so many pains all over. I don't remember who said it on the thread but they're the worst in the morning, it takes hours even with the vicoden I take for the pain to be managable or diminish slightly and bearable. I'm thinking I probably should go back to my doctor or see a pain mgmnt dr for all of this. I just went to an oral surgeon yesterday for my tmj and will be fitted for a splint but since reading all of these other symptoms that I can relate to others having; I'm thinking that tmj is part of a bigger problem.

How did you all get diagnosed and how are you being treated?
