Does anyone else get the overwhleming desire to clench their jaw or grind their teeth? When I am going through DR, this is always one of the acconmpanying syptoms. I even cracked on of my molars :/
The tension and anxiety is causing this....Its similar to biting your nails...

Its a form of coping mechanism to release tension stress and anxiety...

It's probably bruxism...my sister suffered from it, but after a long therapy with a psychologist it went away. It's not just a trivial condition, as many people think, it's a problem that makes it very difficult to live a normal life. I remember that all my persuasions not to do so ended with nothing =( she herself suffered from this habit very much. It even got to the point where she completely erased her teeth and had to do white fillings and a few extensions. Of course it cost a lot of bucks. Anyway, she had a lot of problems because of that. Luckily she's out of it now. I advise you to get therapy as well!
