I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia over 10 years ago, when the awareness of it was still new. I am now postmenopausal by two years and am developing more symptoms that the doctors can't identify. The newest symptom started four days ago and hasn't let up at all: intermittent, stabbing pain on the right side under my jaw. I don't feel any inflammation or a nodule or anyting, and neither did my GP. He is sending me for an u/sound of that area.
It stops and starts; goes away for about four minutes and then starts again--it feels like it's being stabbed. The area--right under my jaw--is tender to the touch.
VERY painful. Does anyone else have this? My doc redid blood tests for C reactive protein, ANA, RA, etc., but those results aren't back yet, and I have an appt. with a rheumatologist and endocrinologist in the next 3 weeks. What tests should I ask for??
Three years ago I had a lymph node biopsy and it turned out I have reactive lymph nodes==but this is crazy! I also have Hashimoto's disease.
Did the endocrinologist or any doctors test you for Langerhans velo histiocytosis? Check brain for probs with hypothalamus snd pituitary? Many problema if histiocytosis can be found there along with mandible lesions. Only about4 per million people get diagnosed with this rare disease, and out of that 4 only one is an adult, but worth asking about!!! Its cslled Adulta Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis or adulta LCH. Hope you are doing well.
