Jaw Pain

Many people, asleep or awake, tend to clench their jaw muscles or grind their teeth when they're tense.

Nix It: See your dentist -- if you grind your teeth, she can create a mouth guard to prevent it. In the meantime, pay attention to your jaw position during the day. "There should always be a small space between your upper and lower teeth [when you're not chewing]," explains Micah Sadigh, PhD, an assistant professor of psychology at Cedar Crest College in Allentown, Pennsylvania. To relax your jaw, gently open your mouth to the point where you notice tension in the muscles of your jaw but no pain. Take a deep breath, and as you exhale, allow your jaw to go completely slack.

I want to not feel as though people are judging me for all the wrong reasons when I leave the house. I want to be able to leave the house on my own without all the anxiety that I have now. I want to one day be able to go on rides at amusement parks with the kids we will have one day. I want to go to an amusement park and not have to worry about if I'll fit or not
