When I Wake Up My Jaw Hurts And Cant Hardly Open Mouth What Can It Be From?

Answer

You may be grinding your teeth in your sleep, which can eventually damage your temporomandibular joint. Check with your dentist to see if that is the problem. If so, he can make you a night guard (also called a night splint) to help prevent you from grinding your teeth.
