Women who wake up with headaches or have ear problems because they were stressed whiled they slept, and other interested individuals, can view the full article at https://torontotmjandsleepcentre.com/blog/the-difference-between-tension-during-the-day-and-night/
The article includes several interesting pieces of information, one in particular is someone who clenches their teeth during the day is more likely to be aware of this and they can stop themselves before excessive tightness develops in the head and face. This should be of particular interest to women between 25 and 60 with headaches because in order to stop potentially damaging stress-related teeth grinding a person needs to be aware of this in the first place and that does not happen during sleep.
One of the most important pieces of information the article tries to convey and communicate is since people are not aware of their stress-related teeth grinding during sleep this can result in prolonged periods of tightness in the head and face which may contribute to a TMJ disorder and headaches. The best example of this is perhaps found in the following extract:
‘The problem comes during sleep and we are unconscious because we are not aware of this. This is a nervous system problem and because we are unconscious this can go on for many minutes and possibly even an hour or so. Therefore, the musculature is even tighter. We can end up with ear symptoms or headaches. We could wake up with headaches.’ A video explanation is available here.
