In brief: Multiple causes

Most common is mattress issues or pillow .
Others could be stress, not sleeping well or muscle spasms. If ongoing - you should see md to discuss and evaluate for cause.

In brief: Bedding/bruxism/bf ?

The list of causes is long.
The solutions depend, in large part, on the cause or combination of causes. Here is what i'd try: 1 evaluate mattress, pillows. 2 look into what was done the evening or day before--physical activity, posture, stress. 3 determine if other structures are affected; upper back and neck pain can accompany jaw pain from grinding. 4 consider using sleep doctor/ monitor eg, zeo.
