GRRRRRRRRR, don't get me started on doctors!!!! Mine is always pushing antidepressants, too. Is that all they know how to do, pass out pills? Ridiculous!!
Mamanan, I can so relate to the leg pain. It is so frustrating when you have to struggle just to walk around.
I am still experimenting with various homeopathy and vitamin supplements. I will find a magic bullet for this yet, and when I do, I will share it with you all.

We've talked before about TMJ etc. I know this is frustrating for you, the face and teeth pain. My right side (lower teeth and jaw) hurt also and it is not fun! I have been taking alot of Tylenol (my max for the day) for two days now. I've been staying as busy as possible so I don't think about it. With mine it comes and goes.
I think once you have an MRI or some type of x-ray that will help with some of the "wondering" on what this is. And the anti-depressant will not hurt you if you don't need it so what have you got to lose except a "bunch" of PAIN. I would go ahead and give it a try, you can always stop taking it if it doesn't agree with you. And it would be nice if it did just the opposite and helped.
Did you start a journal? GamJill
Mamanan and anyone else with the facial pain. Ive had tmj for longer than fibro but since fibro my whole side of face, jaw , TEEEth, ear , cant talk , cant eat , pain excruiting and it take s sooo long to go. Thought I was alone.
