Hi I'm new here. Does anyone else on here have unrelenting toothache like pain in their joints and muscles ? I've got a Spondylosis n my neck and also RA but I've got awful pain that radiates down my arms in my shoulder blades in my chest in unbearable i can't cope with it. I'm on methotrexate prednisolone i take warfarin for a blood clotting condition.

Hi Chrissycrossy

I get that pain down my left arm - completely debilitates it when I move it the wrong way - sends an excruciating pain that completely imobilises my arm and then it "burns" and throbs for ages after.

Can't lift it up or lean on it - last physio I was sweating like a pig when doing movements.

The physio keeps saying that if I breathe and ignore the pain I will break through it.

Lord knows I try - and I have quite a high pain threshold - when you have it all the time you build up a great tolerance and forget it is even there - except when it is so bad you can't move your blummin arm.

Funnily enough, I asked about my neck as it is very weak and I have been diagnosed with Spondylosis before - they are saying there is no connection and it is Tendonitis.

Maybe my scan on the 21st will show different.

Have you been told the arm pain is connected to your neck?


I am so genuinely sorry to read that you are suffering and struggling so much and I sincerely hope that you can find the answers that you so desperately desire and deserve.

it is not something that I have personally experienced but it sounds awful and I want to genuinely wish you all the best of luck.

All my hopes and dreams for you



Yes every day it seems but every one says cause I do nothing what am I supposed to do I have no life Ian not working right now so usually the only place I go is to get grocery I don't like going where people know me,and this is all after my husband passed I want to be ok but I just have the energy.


i am constantly having a toothache. i've gone to the dentist a couple times thinking i must have done something to the bridge since it's those three teeth that hurt the most. nothing wrong. would be completely embarrassed except the dentist and staff as so sweet to me. they understand my health issues which really helps. still..never sure. i, too, have pain radiating down my arms that has gotten to where my fingers are always tingling. i assume it is my neck? this has come and gone for years except now it's a constant. not sure which doctor to see..


Yes, I feel as if I have a bad toothache in all my joints and bones, or as if I have rats deep inside my bones gnawing at them to get out.

My legs, arms, and hands are all terribly stiff and agonisingly painful - especially in the evening and first thing in the morning.

Wishing you some relief, Chrissycrossy, hope you get some help soon.
