At times, I also have joint pains that feel like a toothache. Most of the time, though, they feel extremely pressurized, especially worse with storms and humidity. They feel like I imagine a balloon that's ready to pop would feel. I feel like I need them drained out or something...and oiled up. My joints get very stiff. When they are not so bad, almost every joint in my body cracks and pops, even my sternum. But when it rains or is humid, they get that pressurized feeling..and my joints won't crack at all. Then again, I can hardly move them when they feel like this. It also causes even worse stiffness, especially after sitting for a while.
Last summer I suddenly developed pain near some of my finger joints. It was very sharp and severe, it even kept me awake at night. I told my Rheum, he checked my fingers, moved them around, and said there is no swelling and that was it. Well, something was certainly amiss in there. But now after thinking about it, it could have been nerve pain as it was sudden, sharp, throbbing and almost electric-like. Plus i'd been getting random nerve pains all over the place.
I have compression of my c spine but no neck pain. I go to a NS in 2 wks to see if its connected to some of my pains but I doubt it. I get nerve pains too. For example tonight I was working out and I got nerve type of pains in one of my toes that hit about 4 times in 10 minutes, then went away.
Hi Ginny! We have written to each other before. I do not have the pressure point pains so the Dr said no to fibro. So with fibro you get that deep toothache pain and it pulsates then can move somewhere else? Gosh, I wish I had the pressure points so I could relax w all of this!
I was given cymbalta to see if that would help with the pains. I have been resisting it but will prob try it out this week.....
