teeth clenching
I'm back to teeth clenching. I can't, for the life of me, figure out whether I'm clenching my teeth because my headaches are worse than usual or if my headaches are worse than usual because I'm clenching my teeth. I'm going with the former for the moment. Regardless, it freaking HURTS.

I got one of those "make your own retainer" kits from the drugstore for $24 for that purpose. It was satisfying in the sense of a little science experiment.

I never could sleep well with the thing in, but it did "teach" me to hold my teeth farther apart in my sleep, and the clenching went away in about a week.

except I'd have to wear it 24/7, because the clenching isn't just happening at night. In fact, I'd venture to guess it's happening LESS at night (because I have a tendency to drug myself at night because my headaches are out of control and I can afford the sleepy side effect of the drugs if I'm on my way to bed anyway).

Ooooh, that'd make you sound really funny on the telephone. :-(

I wish I had a better suggestion.
