    I Don't Even Realize It.

     I clench my teeth when I'm stressed, and sometimes just randomly. I don't realize I'm doing it until my jaw hurts! I've also noticed that when I'm really stressed out or nervous, I do this weird thing with my jaw where I act like I'm chewing on something, even though I'm...

    This has become a problem recently,

    mostly because of anxiety and hyper-vigilance. Does anyone have coping mechanisms?

    Tense Jaw

    When I am angry, nervous, or simply sleeping, my jaws clench and occasionally I will grind my teeth.  Sometimes I can catch myself before I do it.  Sometimes I can catch myself five minutes into doing it.  But most of the time, I do it...

    Teeth Clenching

    If you are clenching your teeth, I would recommend everyone check out mouth guards from any providers online. You should get advice from your doctor first, but mouth guards (night guards) do the trick! I recently just purchased a mouth guard from TotalGard and I've...

    I clench my teeth at night

    and during the day. It leads to a really bad pain in my jaw. It's associated with stress as far as I can tell. I can't stand it.

    In Certain Situations

    I clench my teeth when: I'm in pain. I'm intensely irritated I'm trying to hold my tongue and otherwise preventing myself from saying something I'll probably regret.

    I've noticed that I have been doing this a lot

    in the past ... I dunno, maybe month? I think I noticed it about a month ago... maybe longer. As well as baring my teeth and biting my lip. I just do it subconsciously and I'm not sure why it's started all of the sudden. I know I went through some stress because of the end of...

    Eek!

    There are two things that make me clench my teeth... when someone is really starting to **** me off OR when I hear a horrible sound! XD As for sound, lately my teeth clenching has been in overdrive... because my friend Philip likes to tease me, by using his "gay voice"...

    I Do It Subconsciously

    I do it at night and I also do it during the day and I don't even notice it until my jaw and my teeth start hurting. I do it when I'm nervous.

    Bump And Grind

    When I'm stressed I clench my teeth so's that my jaw aches, and I catch myself.  I try to relax but I'll be doing it again within minutes unless I get a sudden attack of Gurdjieffian self-awareness.  If self-development is an inch by inch process then step one is to redirect...

    Even When I Am Asleep

    My sis tells me I clench my jaws when I sleep. I remember when I was younger and I already have trouble sleeping, my cousin would sleep beside me. After a few minutes, she would fall asleep and then I would hear something similar to a squeaking sound. At first I thought it was a...
