For a long time I had a problem where my jaw would click and feel stiff. I was told this was because I was grinding my teeth in my sleep due to stress.
So a few months ago I got a night guard molded to my bottom set of teeth and had to wear it at night to prevent grinding and clenching.
I hadn’t been wearing it recently because I wasn’t bothered about my jaw. However, over the last week or so my jaw has been stiff and clicking to the point that it’s painful.
I’ve been under so much stress that my teeth grinding and jaw clenching has gotten a lot worse. So now I’m back to wearing my night guard I don’t like wearing but it gives my jaw and teeth some relief at least.
