Jaw issue?: You may be grinding or clenching your jaws at night . Check with your dentist to find out. However the neck ache may be from something else. Have you sustained a recent injury (car accident hitting the chin or spraining the neck)? If the neck problem is getting worse or has lasted more than 2 weeks without improvement, ask you doctor to check your neck.
