Re: Cheeks feek weird is it reflux?
I am a grinder with acid reflux. I'm not sure if they have anything to do with each other. I can say that my grinding is worse when my sinuses are acting up.
I have a question about your cheeks. Do you have a ridge on the inside of your cheek? I have one from where I have chewed/ bitten the inside of my cheek over the years while grinding when asleep. That might be a tell-tale sign. Also, if your back teeth are flattened you will know you are a grinder. If that is the case, an occlusal guard can be a big help.
If it is reflux, you should prop up your bed headboard about 6 inches. That is supposed to help with nighttime reflux. You could experiment and try. I sleep with my bed propped. I hate it because I can't get comfortable and my blankets and I slide during the night, but at this point, I am willing to try anything. Not sure it is real effective, but I figure it couldn't hurt.
