TMJ, or more properly, TMJ disorder

I’ve self-diagnosed myself with TMJ disorder. Well, not completely self-diagnosed myself as my dentist did find evidence of teeth grinding during my last visit.

Over the last month, however, I’ve noticed that it has gotten much worse. I frequently find myself clenching my teeth during the day. I’m not sure exactly why this is and I’ve made a concerted effort to try and stop it. I have an appointment scheduled with my dentist on Feb 13th to talk about it in addition to my semi-annual cleaning.
