Re: Jaw clenching, tongue fidgeting

YEAH!!
I am so thankful I have come across this. I
have been having the crazy tongue wiggle. I was feeling freaky as well.
I don't grind my teeth like some of you have mentioned, but I do open my mouth and zig zag my jaw occasionally. And yes, my cheeks are like hell and my gums get scaloped.

I have my own personal reasons:the gum biting and scalops are from dehydration. We suck harder looking for moisture and it puts our cheeks in harms way.
I have been doing this for my whole life, and once they are bit or injured I get nasty painful ulcers. So, driven to find a solution for the biting on my cheeks and the teeth impressions in them, look at your hydration levels... Bet you're sucking. 2-4 quick glasses of water cure the behavior.

As for the clenching and tongue wiggle...dunno....

Re: Jaw clenching, tongue fidgeting

wow, i have always had teeth grinding issues but never have been good with my night time guard.. since taking concerta my jaw is killing from what i think is increased night time grinding. I couldn't even close my mouth for a few days. I went back to my night guard for a couple of days and am feeling so much better. didn't realize it could be related to concerta.

Re: Jaw clenching, tongue fidgeting

I have the same exact stuff (plus posible teeth grinding during sleep)
I've just recently been diagnosed adhd inattentive, but have done this stuff as long as I can remember (to the point where I now have tmj & lock jaw in college lol). I haven't started any medication yet (my dr said concerta as well) and the only thing that helps for me is chewing gum. It still hurts my jaw, as it's still chewing something, but it save the inside of my mouth/tongue. & then also taking ibuprofen for any tension. This has worked for me, hope it helps!


not super related: I've struggled with this my whole life, I find it really frustrating and unpleasant, but I only just thought to google it and am very intrigued that this is the first result that came up. I always wondered if it was correlated to some mental thing, but I always thought anxiety. Very interesting to find adhd relation.
