    Can this be a new sympton of FM? My teeth and jaw are starting to hurt. I have headaches and problems sleeping even though I take meds for this. Can anyone help?

    A lot of us clench and/or grind our teeth. This can make our sleep worse. My suggestion is to see a dentist. He/she can diagnose you and possibly fit you for a device you wear at night to keep you from clenching your teeth. The other suggestion is to also see a sleep specialist. They can also advise you as to how to get better and healthier sleep. I'm going for a sleep study soon and hope to get help for this!

    Since taking Klonopin for sleep, my clenching has dramatically improved.
