If any of these apply to you, make corrections and drink some warm milk at bedtime. ...Read more

In addition, biting your cheeks and tongue could be due to a slight misalignment of your teeth that can be sometimes remidied by some adjustments. I suggest you consider a mouth appliance that you wear at night that prevents you from grinding. See your dentist to have one of these appliances made for you. You need your sleep. ...Read more
