Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Before going to sleep, in general, humans often experience movement in the lower jaw region. This condition is contained in muscle rhythm activity called RMMA or Rhytmic masticatory muscle activity. Two forms of movement that are often encountered are repetitive muscle contractions or repeated contractions to bring the lower jaw up. If this condition occurs excessively can cause creaking teeth during sleep, and all this is known as sleep related bruxism.
This bruxism can be at risk:
1. increase blood pressure and heart rate
2. increased brain activity
3. sleep disorders
4. contraction of the jaw and temple muscles increases strongly
5. increased stomach acid
6. the lower jaw muscles contract strongly
The allegations or research results show excessive neurotransmitter serotonin exposure triggers excessive brain activity, thereby increasing excessive contraction in the jaw. Some typical findings found in patients with this disorder are when the two lower upper incisors are met, complaints that the lower jaw is trembling or shaking. Therefore, there are complaints of jaw lying around and an increased heart rate, possibly a form of the bruxism process that you feel, but all this requires direct evaluation and examination by your neurologist.
Some other conditions can also give complaints as you feel, such as body electrolyte disturbances, seizures or history of seizures, or hypnic jerk / uncontrolled muscle contractions.
Because these complaints have started to interfere or you feel uncomfortable with this condition, you should consult directly with your neurologist. The doctor will conduct interviews, physical examinations and supporting examinations to find out the trigger or cause of this complaint. The results of the examination will be a reference for your doctor to provide care and treatment for you, so that this complaint gets better and you do not experience sleep disorders.
For now, you should consider a number of things to help reduce these complaints independently, such as reducing / avoiding stress, avoiding physical fatigue, avoid sleeping late and doing regular exercise.
