Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I'm grinding my teeth at night while sleeping. This is happening on a regular basis and is causing tooth sensitivity and headaches. I feel like I never get a refreshing night's sleep. I tire very easily and am always battling with depression. The bruxism really concerns me and i would like it to stop. I've tried using mouth guards but either cannot fall asleep with one in or I spit them out during my sleep. This condition is very frustrating!
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Wake teeth clenching happens when I am eating, teeth brushing and in the shower.
