This is due to a tensing of the jaw muscles bringing the upper and lower teeth under immense pressure. Not only does this cause damage to your teeth but is often the cause of headaches, jaw and neck pain.

Do you get headaches or jaw / neck pain especially in the morning?
Have you noticed that your teeth are wearing?
Have you had damage to dental restorations e.g. crowns or fillings for no apparent reason?
