Sinuses?

Do you consciously clench them, or do your jaw muscles go into spasms?

I had a friend who used to grind her teeth in her sleep when v stressed. Her jaws and teeth constantly ached - a dentist identified the problem and fitted some plates which she had to wear at night, I think it helped a lot. It had been going on for quite a few months before the problem was identified.

Otherwise, yes could be sinusitis.

Hi rickman, I had this a few years ago and my dentist concluded I was grinding my teeth in my sleep - I had to bite on something black and he filed away a bit of the top of my teeth
sounds bizarre now, but I never noticed it causing a problem with my teeth and the ache stopped straight away

have you had a bad head cold recently? - Sounds like a sinus infection.When I had one, all my teeth ached, especially when I ran down stairs???

Your in luck! Im a Dental Nurse, O.K so im not a Dentist but probably the next best thing! All these mn's have been fab with all the advise they have given you, it definately sounds like ur clenching/grinding your teeth usually caused through stress(being a mum[wink})! & the more your aware of it the more you seem to do it, so get yourself off to a dentist a.s.a.p where he/she should be able to make a mouth guard for you to wear while you sleep & this should solve the problem as people tend to grind their teeth most often while their sleeping.Hope this helps.

Rickman, stand up and put your head down by your knees. If the pain increases you have sinus trouble. If not you may have something called TMJ, do you find it difficult opening your mouth wide? Is your jaw stiff? That's a sure sign of it.

Tempero-mandibular joint dysfunction syndrome. Sorry if the spelling isn't quite right, it's been a long time since I learned about it (1987). Sounds like that's what the problem is.

Head and neck massage? Aromatherapy? A long swim followed by a massage? Sounds like you need to wind down.
