I'm not sure if it's because of ASD

But I have a big problem with my jaw. It locks up so I can't open my mouth fully and it does it so often. I have realized that I clench my teeth together really hard all the time and I think I grind them in my sleep. Every time I yawn my jaw clicks and it hurts so much!

Could this be linked to ASD or is it a separate problem?

  • Hi Lone, sounds like bruxism, commonly caused by stress. I get it whilst at work, in a noisy environment. Causes me ear trouble.

    Ironically, since meeting me, my wife has suffered with bruxism and teeth grinding too, due to me stressing her out
