So I've been in a flare several weeks now and thr last three days has been even more difficult. Basically it started as tmj and it grew to a migraine that went to a level of white light blackouts and pain so high all I could do tremble. I lost te ability to speak clearly and the left side of face and head swill to twice it's size.
Dr have gave me a cocktail of several shots and pull to lower my BP because it had spiked to strok levels. And it felt kind of like a stroke. I was in so muchn. After it was al said snd done I was. Sent home with muscle relaxer and antibiotics and order to see a dentist for a mouth guard and he wrote it off as a fibromyalgia flare up. So now I'm home and haf hoped thr hospital meds would knock me out but so far it has only given me maps amd woke up with some pain returning. I hoped I would need my daily pain meds but I suppose I was wrong. Any additional advice u guys can sdd please do. I'm still new to this stuff and certainly havr never needed to be rushed to ER for a flare.

I am sorry you are in such a bad flare up! I myself am in a flare up! Getting a splint or night guard will help with the tmj. As far as the rest I hope that you can get some relief Soon! Hugs!

Sending πŸ€—and 😘 my friend. There is nothing I can offer you except My thoughts and prayers that your Flare ends soon. It's very scary and lonely going thru your flare alone. But know that we are all with you. I just got off a 4-5 day flare. It's the pits...but I knew I was not alone, that there are others who truly know of my suffering. May God give you the courage to get you thru it and know many others are there with you.

Ya know recently,I read a thread of all the people and places that are participating in this blog world 🌎 wide. It blew me away to know just how many people understand what it's like to suffer in silence. Your not alone... next time you are feeling a lot of pain. Cuddle up with your favorite blanket or pet and visualize standing in the center of the 🌏 earth surrounded from people all over the world 🌎 who are gently hugging πŸ€— you and sending you there ❀️ love. Encouraging you to hang in there and telling you they care . With sincere hopes your feeling less pain soon🌹

My fibro symptoms started as TMJ pain & moist heat & ibuprophen helped A lot. You can get a sports mouth guard about anywhere. You put it in boiling water and when safely cooled bite into it so it conforms to mouth/teeth shape. It creates space between teeth which puts jaw in relaxed position. I went to biofeedback to learn how to relax my jaw muscles plus others. Moist warm cloth, then heating pad helped.
