I have very similar health problems to you, Sjogrens, Fibromyalgia, Osteo Arthritis, HBP, Previous Stroke(10yrs ago)...and i'm only 56...I suffer dreadfully with mouth swelling and pain, tmj etc and have been told i grind my teeth at night. I have been given a mouth/bite guard (same as retainer) for my bottom teeth and it works brilliantly :-). Ask your dentist to do one for you or see a maxillo facial consultant (i am in UK)..good luck and hope you find some relief soon.
From this study (2 years ago):
I have been going to the Dr. for swelling in breast, not painful until it gets really swollen. It only happens on the right breast, it's the only side I can sleep on because left leg swells and get tender if I sleep on my left side. Have had 2 mammograms in the last year, a biopsy and 2 sonograms, with no sign of cancer, but Dr. still doesn't know why the swelling.
