ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
For over 10 years I've suffered from all over body pain, TMJD (which I've had 2 arthrocentisis and one surgery to correct), headaches, involuntary movement of left hand and left foot, pulsatile tennitis which is now affecting my hearing. It took about 4 years of different doctors and numerous test before I got a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. But for the past 2 years I've also started having burning sensation in both thighs and severe joint pain, hand pain, pain along my spine, swelling of the feet. I feel like since I have Fibromyalgia no matter what symptom I have I'm told it's just part of the Fibromyalgia. One doctor even told me the TMJD is a precursor to Fibromyalgia so basically every symptom is related. At this point, I feel that there are a few issues going outside the Fibro because all the research I've done says that Fibromyalgia does not get worse. However, my pain is steadily worsening. I've been told I have Thyroid problems, Neuropathy, Nerve damage, Inflammation, Osteoarthritis depending on which doctor I go to. One Neurologist told me I have white spots on the brain which could be causing the involuntary muscle movements.
I don't have a video to upload because it's really hard to talk at times with the TMJD and it makes me very self conscious at times.
