I'm due for TMJ replacement and have probable FM

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi there,

my particular situation is that I'm due for TMJ replacement but, have deferred it because the rest of my body hurts so much, I can't face the TMJ replacement. I am trying to get a diagnosis for Fibromyalgia while TMJ replacement is all put on hold. As many of you will know, the two conditions are often linked. So here's the plan: my Maxillofacial surgeon will phone me in the New Year to discuss, meanwhile I will persevere in getting a diagnosis and some relief of FM symptoms (sore joints, IBS, muscles tender to touch, sharp stabbing pains, etc. Does this also descibe you?

    Hi Sarah. I don't have a diagnosis yet for Fibro as my doc is still running through every test imaginable first. But what you described in this post is 100% what I have been feeling. Did you ever get a fibromyalgia diagnosis?
