Nervous habits?


Lately I keep finding myself grinding my teeth when I'm stressed or really focused on something. I think I'm actually giving myself headaches and jaw aches from it Chat Icon but it's like I have no control and just find myself doing it!

Does anyone else have bad habits like this? Are/were you able to stop?

Re: Nervous habits?

Yes, I do. I laugh when I'm nervous. It comes across as being flippant or uncaring sometimes but if I'm in a situation that really makes me feel awkward, I laugh.

Nervous habits?

I grind my teeth and have a mouth guard because it really affects my tmj.

Yes, I pick at the skin on my fingers (around my nails/cuticles) and it's pretty gross. Most of the time I don't even realize it's happening, but I've been trying to be more aware and just stop whenever I notice that I'm doing it.

I am a tooth grinder! I recently got plackers bite guards and they've helped so much! I've had like 80% less headaches.

Oh wow I didn't realize the teeth grinding was common. For those with mouth guards, are they worn during the day or just sleeping? I really think I need something like this.

Oh and I do the cuticle picking too. I'm a hot mess!

Re: Nervous habits?

I wear mine at night but they're tiny and clear. You could keep them in during the day.

Tooth grinder here as well. I also clench my jaw during the day. I've used over the counter guards but they all disintegrate on me. I think if it gets bad again (hasn't been bad since before my pregnancy), I will get a custom one from my dentist.

It's called bruxism. My uncle has it and had to get a night guard.

I chew the inside of my mouth (cheek area). I don't even realize that I'm doing it -- completely automatic. Sometimes if I bite hard enough, I'll start to bleed a little. Ew.

My brother does this & his fingers look painful! He has to wear gloves sometimes to try to keep himself from doing it.

Re: Nervous habits?

I have a lot of nervous habits but mainly nail biting. It's so gross but when I go through periods of stress in my life, my nails really show it! As a teenager I would pull out my hair to relieve stress, I couldn't help it... terrible habit.. thankfully I haven't done that in many years.

Re: Nervous habits?

I have the bad nervous laugh. I can usually control it ......but before I go into a funeral or wake I have to take a few minutes to myself in the car ......Chat Icon

When I'm stressed I bite my nails/cuticles - it's gross.

Along with chewing the inside of my cheek, and fiddling with my hair, I jiggle my foot when I am nervous.
