Question by Certainty19**: How do I stop clenching my jaw?
I never realize I’m doing it until my jaw starts hurting.
I don’t grind my teeth or anything.

Have a dentist make a nightguard for you (I assume you are doing it at night). It does two things. First, it makes it uncomfortable for your muscles to clench. Second, it stretches your muscles so they are not inclined to clench (the way you get rid of a cramp is by stretching…has to do with the signals muscles use for working/relaxing).
