Hi Street,

You need to see your medical provider. This may be due to your Fibro and RA but it may be something else too. Either way, see your doctor.

Let us know how it goes for you.

Hello....I'd get it checked out, too, but I have this at times. It could be TMJ. I believe it's caused from grinding your teeth at night, and you may not be aware of it. I have to be careful when I go to the dentist and hold my mouth open for a long time, b/c it really hurts me, and has gotten out of line before.

I'm also careful when I yawn. I've read where it can be a symptom of fibro. There is a mouthguard you can wear, if that's what you have. You can get it from your dentist, and I believe they sell them at drugstores.
