I know that there can be other pressure points than the ones the doctor normally checks for, but I'm just wondering how many other people get them on the face and the neck areas.

Most of the time it feels like the glands in my neck are swollen though doctors have told me they can't feel anything swollen there. Also my face seems to be very tender, it hurts to wash my face even when I'm being gentle, particularly the forehead, but sometimes my cheeks hurt too. It's not enough pain to make me gasp, but just enough to make me take notice.

My face hurts also when I wash it and my glands have felt swollen since just before the fibro hit me and have stayed feeling that way.It sounds silly to say that even your face hurts but mine does, and my neck burns all the time deep down. confused confused sue2z

I've found that (at least for myself) if it has a muscle, it hurts!!  shocked
