Hi Everyone,
I've been suffering with all 3 of these "thing's" for a month, Sjogrens, Sinus, TMJ. :wacko: Do you suppose that one of these is causing all of the discomfort, pain, and dizziness?? Does anyone else have similar problems?

Hi Purr,

Sorry to hear that you've been suffering such horrible symptoms.

Thankfully I haven't suffered from what you're describing, so can't advise you from my own experience. However it does sound as if TMJ could be causing some of the the symptoms you describe, although I must point out that I'm not a doctor (I do have a current first aid certificate but that's the extent of my training!! ;) ) We have a link here to Dental Problems, Sjogrens and TMJ which I hope you'll find helpful.

I expect some more of our members will be able to give you first hand experiences of similar problems and I hope that you soon begin to get some relief from the unpleasant symptoms from which you're suffering.

Here's a :emoticons-group-hug: to cheer you up in the meantime!

Hi Purr,
I too suffer from TMJ and also put a post on here a while ago as I developed a really tender and bruised sensation around my cheek bones and nose; however it did only seem to last for a few weeks and then seemed to disappear on its own. Whether it comes back again who knows, but at the moment it seems to have gone on it's way.

So whether it's just one of those mystery symptoms that seems to appear from nowhere and then disappear or one of those that re occurs only time will tell.

Hope this has been of some help to you.

Take care
hugs and loves :emoticon-hug:

I'm back!!

I sent an e-mail to my Rheumatologist telling her about what I'm experiencing. She said it sounds like it could be fibromyalgia (I'm waking up in the night with neck and back pain along with all of the other stuff. :crying: ). She wrote back that the medication she would give me would make my Sjogren's worse so she wouldn't give me anything. I have an appointment with her on the 30th. She'll check me out then.

On the brighter side, the sun has been shining all day and the temperature is warmer.

Take care everyone.

Hi Purr,

It's good that you've been able to contact your rheumatologist and even though she's not able to actually give you any medication at least now she's aware of the problem so hopefully when you see her on the 30th she might be able to suggest something to help you. We've got a link here to Fibromyalgia which I hope you'll find interesting.

Although it's still cold, the sun is also shining here today....amazingly!! :emoticons-line-dance:
