It might be GERD...or it might be because your jaw is tight. Do you clench your teeth? Sleep on your stomach? Grind your teeth at night? Are you stressed out? I have problems with my neck and jaw (pain and tightness), and sometimes chewing can be tough--sometimes I bite my cheek or tongue, more often than other people!
Check out books from your local library on relieving jaw tightness...I just checked one out last month...I have it right here...it's called "The TMJ Healing Plan" by Cynthia Peterson, PT It helped a lot! Good luck to you, too!View Thread
