I have started grinding my teeth in my sleep, even after wearing the night guard my dentist made. I have been exhausted and have headaches, but after I had my wisdom teeth removed, it got much worse. Then my my jaw started popping on my right side and protruding into my ear canal, so I ended up with muffled hearing on that side and my ears ring constantly. The symptoms fluctuate with my jaw pain and now my mylohyoid region and my bottom jawbone are always sore. TMJ is no joke!
