 I clentch too. My oral surgen said that splints can't keep you from clentching, but rather give you something to bite. He gave me a muscle relaxer (flexaril) and it helped. Mention that to your doc.

When my headaches are the worst I notice that the weather is bad or I have the jaw/muscle tightness....
 
I can't stand to wear the appliances in my mouth...but if I take a muscle relaxer, something for anxiety (xanax) or even narcotic...where I can relax and let the pain wear off...I notice and significant reduction in pain!!!!
 
Those are some of the worst headaches I get I think because I am so uncomfortable and then notice how uncomfotable I am and then it spirals downhill?!?! I tense up, clench harder and make it worse!
