Facial tightness

Postby Souris on April 5th, 2003, 10:59 am

Hi,

I had a lot of facial tightness in December and January. It's gone now. I have a lot of tongue burning at the moment, and some feeling of weakness in my arms and hands, on and off.

Souris,

Could it be TMJ? There seems to be alot of BFS sufferers that have TMJ. I was diagnosed with it about 10 years ago. My face felt tight...like swollen, but it wasn't. The neurologist sent me for an MRI. I don't exactly know what they find on these other than tumors, but he said my nerves were inflamed from gritting and grinding my teeth while I slept(I wasn't even aware I was doing this!). I was put on tegretol for 8 weeks for the inflammation. All the tightness went away. You could try one of the over the counter drugs for inflammation and maybe try a mouth guard(recommended by the neuro). This my friend was a life saver. I couldn't believe all the pressure taken off my face once I started wearing this at night.

Maybe this is your answer. I hope. I wish BFS was as easy to solve. :(

Renee :)
