Around the time I posted my “Christmas Gifts for Her under €25” post, I started feeling a weird and annoying pain around my jaw. This pain quickly spread to my ear, head and back. I was getting migraines almost everyday! I was in a lot of pain so I decided to visit my doctor who then sent me to my dentist. It seems I have a tired jaw muscle due to me clenching my teeth (Bruxism).
The dentist told me they were going to try and treat my symptoms by making me a costum-made night guard. When I asked him what the cause of my teeth clenching was my dentist told me it was probably stress! Even though I am not aware of any stress right now it seems that my body is telling me to slow down!
So I did, with all the symptoms I decided to really listen to my body. I spent more time resting and really lowered my screen time to try and get rid of my migraines.
Tomorrow I will be picking up my custom-made night guard. I am hoping it will solve my symptoms and that I will be back soon!
Have you ever heard of someone with the same problem? Let me know what helped!
