Acute pain and FMS

Hi I am pretty newly diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and I was wondering if anyone has experienced what I have this week. I have a really painful, infected tooth. I went to the dentist and he put me on antibiotics and wants to pull the tooth in a week or so. My pain has been through the roof this week. I am in tears most days and can barely walk in the morning. Has anyone experienced an increase in their Fibro pain when they had acute pain like tooth in? Am I nuts or are these things linked.

No, you are not nuts at all. Pain in your teeth can affect your fibro pain. At least I have experienced it. I have learned to take pain meds before I go to the dentist's office as a precaution.

Gentle hugs
