Hi good day sir/mam, I've been experiencing this pain a while now. My jaw and head hurts but only On the left side. For instance if I bend down with my head facing downwards and raise back up it pains a lot for a minute or two then slightly easier to bear with. My mother suffers with high blood pressure but there isn't any other sicknesses that I know of in the family. So can you provide me with an explanation on why this is happening to me please, i'll be very thankful. Have a blessed day! Aaron.

(My sister tells me I have always had very active dreaming so this medication just exacerbates it.) One of the first nights after beginning to take Aricep...
If you are reading this, someone close to you lives with and suffers from fibromyalgia (FM). Since FM is invisible, many find it hard to believe that it is a real illness or that anyone could really hurt that much all the time. Unfortunately, this is one of the main reasons that fibromyalgia is so often misunderstood, misdiagnosed and not properly treated. Fibromyalgia is a central nervous system disorder that has three primary components: pain, fatigue and sleep problems. (1) Pain – The pain may vary in intensity and location, but it is present most, if not all, of the time. (2) Fatigue – The fatigue is not like the tiredness you might feel after working too hard or overdoing it on a sports field. It's a pervasive, all-encompassing exhaustion – like someone pulled the plug on your energy source. (3) Sleep – The person with FM usually has difficulty sleeping. And even when they do finally sleep, they...
