Good Morning Panike,
So good to see you back with us and I know how the anxiety can feel under-control and suddenly start creeping up for no reason that we can think of.............so just go with it and remember you have anxiety, anxiety does not have you.
Anxiety and teeth grinding appear to be a major culprit in this problem. When we are under a great deal of stress and anxiety our bodies tense up. Our muscles tense up and the tension can create grinding of your teeth during the night.
I like the idea of the mouth guard so please do take a look into that option.
My panic has been really bad lately and I've noticed I'm grinding and clenching a lot more in my sleep than normal.
Stress induces the clenching and grinding; so it seems logical, but dang it hurts!
I feel like my teeth are going to be worn down to nothing in a year! LOL
