That's actually very helpful. Not the cocaine part, but I have been drinking a lot of green tea and coffee. Should one avoid tea/coffee period, or is having it later in the day what makes one grind worse?
No you don't need to avoid coffee during the day, but just within about 1 or even 2 hours before you go to sleep for the night. That goes for anything with caffeine of course. Caffeine is a stimulant so it prevents your muscles from relaxing properly.Green tea and other herbal or fruit teas might be okay since they're lower in caffeine than regular black tea. I'm not sure though. It may be best to experiment. I know it's hard to tell if you're grinding overnight, but sore jaws in the morning is usually a good indication.There isn't much else that can be done, like there are no medications or anything. Some people just have really active facial muscles.
yeah, I'm well aware of the horrid things it can lead to. ugh.
sorry dont mean to be a downer ;) but try a mouth guard.
