Tense Jaw Muscles

Are tense jaw muscles a common symptom with BFS? My jaws and throat feel tight and I'm hoping it's just due to anxiety and stress.

I'm not sure if I experienced the exact same thing, however I have had difficulty with my jaw, particularly on the right side of my face, and also under my chin, going into a near cramp situation. The muscles seem to tighten up and can become quite painful. It was worse about a year ago when all this started, and taking Calcium supplements in addition to my usual high intake of dairy products have reduced this problem a lot.

As for throat tightness, in my case I think it was just anxiety over the possibilities.

Cheers,

I have had TMJ since I was a kid. And when my BFS first started, my jaw pain/tension increased greatly. I think it was a combination of anxiety and the BFS. Furthermore, my throat stayed constricted for months when my anxiety was the worst. I am almost certain this was just anxiety. I did get some spasms and twitches in my throat, which were probably more related to BFS.
