Anyone here have involuntary teeth chattering?
6 Replies
gapakrat - January 29

I have fibromyalgia, and have had for many years. Have all the general symptoms, but in the last 48 hours have starting this wierd involuntary teeth chattering thing. Only on the left side of my face in the TMJ area. No pain, just uncontrollable muscle spasm causing the chattering. I have been reading everything I can find about TMJ/FMS and can't find too much that tells me anything. Anyone else with this problem?
thanx..pakrat...

I have never had teeth chattering, but I do have involuntary teeth CLINCHING! It gets os bad that I have jaw pain from it! I don't even realize I am doing it till my jaws start hurting.

The only time I have had this is when I get chills (sometimes at bedtime, even if everyone else in the house is warm and comfy).

Muscles go into spasm when they are tight or stressed. Try massaging the area and use hot packs to relax the muscles. It may be coming from another area too. Check out your muscles in the neck and head for tender or tight areas.

I too have experienced invol teeth chattering,its happened 5 or 6 times.Its impossible to stop until IT wants to stop.I liken it to having a restless leg attack.

I have had TMJ for years and wear a splint at night while I sleep. My teeth chatter once in a while and it is due to my lower jaw. I have very slight involuntary motion all of the time due to TMJ/muscle spasm in my jaw. I have had episodes where it does become noticeable. I just ignore the problem as it usually resolves itself. If not, I wear my splint during the day when I don't need to speak clearly or eat. I hope that this answers your concern. Take care.
