Can chewing too hard cause brain damage?
« on: February 18, 2014, 07:43:30 PM »
I have a thing where I have to chew my shirt constantly; this causes jaw pains all the time. I was chewing my shirt really hard, when suddenly I got a sharp pain smack dab in the center of my forehead. Is it possible that this could damage to the brain? It was in the worst spot too. . .

Chewing will not cause brain damage.

No, if anything you are putting strain on your jaw muscles which could be radiating to your head. The best thing to do would be to try to break that habit and see if the pain goes away. But you are definitely not damaging your brain by chewing something.

I think you also need to discuss with a professional the underlying issues which make you constantly chew your shirt in the first place.

Not unless you are chewing your brain.
