    Your first 5 symptoms sound like a TMJ syndrome (temporal-mandibular joint) I'm sending you a link relative to that:

    Your other respondent suggested fibromyalgia. I think she's right. The symptoms are migratory and there is no definitive diagnosis or cure. Three years ago I contracted something similar. I think I was exposed to a virus that started the syndrome. It eventually burned itself off but I was very sick in the interim. it took a really long time to go away- at least 2 years. Almost everything you describe is neurological. Can you identify anything in her environment that could be causing this? History of chemical exposure, drinking water contamination, animal bite? Think hard. I wish you luck.

    I have FMS & it sounds as though she possibly does have FMS, which includes TMJ as one of the symptoms. Your wife needs to see a rheumatologist for a definitive diagnosis. Best of luck to you both. Dianosis is the first step. dolsgirl
