Hi, and welcome! I agree with Chutz. It sound like what happens with TMJ. I have the shoulder and neck pain that will carry up into my scalp. The muscles are so tight for me. I find a GENTLE massage helps me. Meantime, try massaging your scalp, around the base of your skull (I have knots there) and even your temples. That might help you some.
Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibromyalgia. You will learn a lot there!
I'm so glad that you found us and joined it! I hope to hear more from you soon.
Hi...I have the exact same thing and mine is from TMJ. The muscles in my temple and near my jaw twitch from grinding my teeth, and clenching my jaw. Also, unexplained tooth aches and head aches. Massage is the only thing that has given me relief. I got a mouth guard but all I did was bite through it in my sleep.
