Have you been in a lot of stress recently?Are you an anxiety prone person or a laid-back type of a person?Please let me know.

Thank you for the additional information.I think that the symptoms i.e. jaw stiffness that you are experiencing are due to tense or stiff muscles as a result of anxiety or stress which will improve in due course of time as your stress lessens.So I would not worry a great deal.This session is open for any number of further questions that you may have.I would appreciate it if you rate me by clicking on one of the rating options at your end as that is the only way I am credited on here for helping you out.Kindest regards
