Does anyone else experience random facial, well... I call it cramping, although sometimes it almost borders on pain. It mainly seems to flare around my mouth and into my cheeks, turning them beet red. It’s not a hot flash. I went through that nonsense ten years ago, so I know the difference. If I watch it in the mirror, I can see the slow wave of the cramp deforming my cheeks. It feels so annoying. It also makes me look like I’m flushed, or embarrassed which in itself can be embarrassing! I was just wondering if anyone else had something like this?

I haven't had what you describe but I do get alot of random facial/head pains. And at times my face feels like its on fire but its not really very red. I am still in a state of amazement at ALL the weird, odd, frustrating symptoms of Fibro!

It sure is hard to describe some of this stuff to the Doctors. But we know that we aren’t crazy. This is actually happening to us and at least here, on this forum, we will get a sympathetic ear (or should I say eye?) and maybe even some helpful advice, which is sometimes more than we get from the Doctors!

I am still stunned at symptoms. So many odd ones!! I often get that face hotness with a tight feeling like my face is being stretched. Also get pressure feeling in my head, like the skin it tightening on my head. Explaining that stuff to a dr is frustrating. They say do you mean this or that and I say NO I mean just what I said.

At night when I have had a bad day I can feel the tightness, creepy crawly burny feeling up my neck into my jawline and side of face... will develop into a headache... sometimes it will lift and go away and sometimes not... I hate that.. even my ear or tooth willnhave dull ache....
