I have been diagnosed with FM about 3 years ago since my brother and sister were as well. Most of you probably know how uncomfortable it is to say the least. It is very hard to describe it to others who are not suffering with FM. I try to tell them that the pain gets so bad it is like a mac truck ran over you and came back to make sure it did a good job so it can run over you again. Plus many times I would just feel like I was having a bout with the flu. The only way I have found to ease the pain is to stretch the muscles if I can. That seems to release it. Pain meds don't seem to touch it. I am going to talk to my doctor to see about using Requip, a dopamine related medication. ProHealth said that FM patients seem to have some relief. Another bothersome problem is RLS. I believe they said that the meds like Equip would help that too. Do those of you suffering with FM, have any of these additional problems like RLS? Do you notice that sometimes it isn't only your legs that will jerk but other parts of your body like when someone comes up behind you and scares you. Another problem I started having lately is my jaw. It seems to want to lock up on me like it is stuck. I don't know much about TMJ but all I know is that lately I have had severe jaw pain to where I wasn't sure if it was a sinus, ear, tooth abcess or what. I get this clicking sound that happens on either side of my face by my ears. However, the last 2 days, that clicking is now like getting stuck. I have to wiggle my jaw to break it loose. Anyone out there with these kinds of things? Are they related to FM?
