Well, here I go again, folks! Another new symptom. During the night, the gums around the right molar that has been giving me particular problems swelled. I now have a lump that feels like a pea between the gum under my second-from-the-back right molar and my cheek. It hurts (of course!) and is very tender. The tooth, however, while still tender, seems to hurt less! I talked to my dentist, who prescribed amoxicillin, and I have an appointment with him on Monday morning. The swelling probably has nothing to do with FM, but I was just wondering whether others with FM have experienced dental problems, either directly associated with FM or indirectly, i.e., as a result of some FM treatment or medication. This is all driving me nuts! Every time I think I have a handle on what's going on, something else starts up. You'd think I'd be used to that sort of thing after all my years living with MS, but it feels brand new somehow. --Laura R.M.
