Cassie, welcome to the family. Our wonderful Sherrine is bringing back our 'Fibro 101', which includes a listing of all the wonderful symptoms of this joy we know as Fibro. That should help you to see a lot of the 'weird' things going on in your life/body are part of Fibro. I have had a problem w/ my mouth/tongue for, well, forever. My tongue and jaw get very tired and sore. I can eat a certain food today and no problem, tomorrow I will eat it and have to spit it out, my muscles are so sore I can't chew the food. The tongue muscles hurt. Of course, ppl that don't have this look at you funny when you say it, but this is our reality.
Also my tongue swells, not up, but out towards my teeth, which is why I bite my tongue quite a bit.
Anyway, around here it's not weird, it's normal. Yes, we are special!! You have to have a sense of humor to live w/ this nonsense, and it appears you have a good one. Good for you.
Keep asking ???, the ppl here are so good and helpful, and very kind. Look forward to hearing more from you. Hope you have a good day!!
God bless. Alice.
