From this study (2 months ago):
tired all the time. My muscles ache and I constantly clench my teeth -currently I am wearing a splint given to me by an oral surgeon. --I feel older than I am. A lot older.
From this study (3 months 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 (6 months ago):
I've had teeth grinding for several weeks.
