I get extremely itchy ears at times. I read that tinnitus (ringing in the ear) can cause itchy or sore ears and is common with fibromyalgia. Myofacial pain can cause pain in the jaw which ultimately may affect the teeth I believe. Hope you feel well soon take care.

Hi Caren. I have the same problems with my fibro.There is a search bar above, to the left. I typed in ear & tooth pain. Here is what I copied for you. Bruxism Symptoms and Fibromyalgia
Approximately 75% of people with fibromyalgia are also affected by TMJD, which causes muscle pain in the face, neck, shoulders and back, and often leads to jaw clenching and teeth grinding.

Nocturnal bruxism refers to teeth grinding that takes place at night, while an individual is asleep. Sufferers will begin to clench the muscles in the face, which leads to teeth grinding. Individuals may not be aware of this behavior but wake up with pain in the jaw area. The following are some commonly experienced bruxism symptoms:


teeth grinding or clenching that wakes up your partner during sleep
worn down, flattened or chipped teeth
increased tooth sensitivity or other dental problems
jaw pain or tightness
ear ache due to jaw contractions
headache
chronic facial pain
chewed tissue inside the mouth
Laying on a heating pad or hot wash cloths on my jaw helps a little. I hope that you feel better.
