Coincidentally, after having a conversation with my Bff about her waking up to my teeth-grinding (during a sleepover), I wake up with a very sore mouth and abrasions on the sides of my mouth. For the past day and a half I have been talking funny, and have gotten so irritated, that I decided to Google my condition. As we have it, I have a sleep disorder called Bruxism.
After an exhaustive list of sites and read-throughs, I decided to chew gum to alleviate the pain.
