Stress can do things to you--and you can be so completely unaware you are under stress--that it's shocking. For example, a couple weeks ago or so I was going to have a colonoscopy. Every time I was telling someone I was going to have it I would not be able to pronounce the word on the first few tries (colon-os-copy). Trust me, I'm pretty articulate, so I thought that was weird that I kept stumbling over such a simple word...but didn't dwell on it.
So, I have the colonoscopy, the Dr. said "looking good" to me afterward...and viola! I can say colonoscopy without stumbling immediately. Naturally, the light bulb went off as to why I kept stumbling over the word before, but, if you had asked me if I was nervous about going to have the colonoscopy I would have said "no."
Of course, I realize now it was unconscious stress on me cause my Grandma died of colon Cancer, and I lived with her for awhile during the end and have always been afraid of getting it.
Unconscious stress can really do you in without your even being aware of it. Hence, the tooth clenching. Just my theory, anyway.

I don't think wine has worked in the past but I'm going to keep trying!

Two of my molars one side (top & bottom) are extremely sensitive to cold and it really affects my quality of life. One has a crown and has had a root canal. How can the stupid thing still be sensitive to cold?

I am not a medical professional, so I'm speaking purely from my uneducated experience.
I've had sensitive teethy my entire life, and now that I'm long in the tooth, some of the root is exposed and that is sensitive for many people. Have you tried toothpaste for sensitive teeth? If one brand doesn't work, try another. I know it looks like they all have the same active ingredient, but my hygienist insisted I keep trying. I finally found Crest Pro Health worked for me, but YMMV. Before I found this brand, I had to learn to not smile when I skiied because the cold air hurt too much.
Your pain in the root canalled tooth may be referred pain from another tooth.

ProHealth worked for awhile but it doesn't seem to be helping much anymore. I guess I'm going to have to try another one. I've heard flouride rinses help but I haven't tried it.
