Could Jaw Pain Be Caused By Stress And Anxiety?

 2020 has been a stressful year for everyone around the world. 

According to Tel Aviv University (TAU), located in Israel, there is has been a significant increase in orofacial and jaw pain since their first lockdown due to the novel coronavirus. 

Research results showed that women suffered from those symptoms more than men ranging in age 35-55 years old. Before the pandemic, about 17% of people had suffered from jaw-clenching during the day but that number has risen to 32% while teeth-grinding at night rose from 10% to 36%.
