My wife says I grind my teeth i my sleep, and chatter them as well. My dentist says he sees signs of premature wear on my teeth from grinding. Otherwise I have perfect teeth. Is someone saying this is linked to IBD? even indirectly? I don't have any CD pain or issues when I grind my teeth, I have been doing pretty good for almost 3 years now but grind my teeth frequently. I am considerably stressed though.

Used to grind my teeth in sleep as a kid, not sure if I still do.
A couple weeks ago I got really bad pain in the left side jaw muscles with no real reason to cause it. It hurts to yawn sometimes. It's definitely in the muscles, have no doubt.

I wake up with jaw pain and my face hurts too and it will give me massive headaches for days. I have to put ice on it and lay down. I took up doing jaw exercises someone told me about.online. They do seem to help when I am in that pain.
