Clenching teeth?

Nov 22, 2014 12:30 PM

Upon suggestion from dentist several months, I've been wearing a mouth guard at night. Don't sleep well to begin with but this mouth guard definitely doesn't help. I'm not aware if clenching teeth is a fibromyalgia symptom or not. I never realized how bad of a habit I had but I noticed soreness on a back molar this morning and noticed definite teeth marks in that area on my mouth guard!!!! 😱

I think clenching is one of those 'guarding against the pain' things that we subconsciously do. I know that I clench more than usual on bad pain days.

I hate mouth guards that are bulky.m they make other kinds that are just a thin wire with enough padding for just the molars. I recommend it! I grind too
