Grinding My Teeth Away

A few nights ago I noticed that I had bit the side of my cheek on the right side. I knew what that meant, I am grinding my teeth again while sleeping. My dentist gave me a night guard a few months ago and it has helped me during times when I shift my jaw at night. To add to my other problems, I now have really painful teeth in the back. I am shifting my lower jaw, which is making my bite crooked. Biting down right now is really painful, so I am off to the dentist tomorrow morning to see what is going on here. Perhaps, I need to go on a vacation or something because I think the amount of stress I am feeling (elevated but it should not be) is really hurting me.

This is day 1 with no caffeine, sweets, or packaged foods!
