What condition is this? Biting teeth for a few minutes as falling asleep?
I was told that, every night without fail, I’d bite my teeth (“chop chop chop chop”—like chewing) in the first few minutes of being unconscious. The rest of the night I’d sleep peacefully.
What condition could this be? Is it a stress-related condition? Or jaw, or dental? Or just a simple falling-asleep mechanism, that some people have it and some people don’t?
I looked up “bruxism” and found this definition: “excessive jaw clenching and teeth grinding throughout the night.” Mine most likely is not bruxism.
Thanks for any help!
