Is Holiday Stress Aggravating Your TMJ?

Dr. Farnad TMJ Stress

During the holidays, TMJ patients often feel increased painful TMJ symptoms. Unfortunately, as stress increases so does TMJ pain, such as: jaw pain, poor jaw mobility, headaches, and migraines. Sometimes, these symptoms are due to continuos clenching or grinding. Typically, TMJ patients have a tendency to clench or grind in their sleep. However, stressful situations can also trigger these habits during the day. Although the holidays are beautiful time of year, filled with lots of family time and food, they can also be a very stressful time for everyone, making TMJ pain worse for TMJ sufferers.
