Is there a correlation between TMJ and Fibro?  I was recently diagnosed with TMJ and was wondering if there was.

Hi Lisa. I think a lot of people will tell you yes that there is a connection because it seems like many people with fibro have TMJ also. But remember that TMJ can be caused by many things such as trauma, infections, arthritis, structural defects, etc and many people have it without having fibro so it's not just a fibro thing. Myself I have had fibro for several years but have recently developed TMJ due to a blow to the face. How are you treating yours? When I first got hurt I had my chiropractor check it out and do some work on it. He will work on it if it flares up also. I use moist heat and occasionally a cold pack. I hope you aren't struggling with it too much. Take care, Lisa
If I can laugh at it, I can live with it.

Mine is because I have a bad tooth.  Well I have bad teeth.  My ears are killing me.  I put a cold compress on it last night and it seemed to work.   I found out this afternoon.  I thought that I had a bad ear infection.

Hi Lisa Bruxing was one of my first early symptoms before the whole myriad of fibro occured and resulted in bad teeth and gums. I think a good dentist would prescribe a mouth guard of some kind.
