Default Mouth pain and clenching jaw

Ugh I'm just going to complain for a bit... My wisdom tooth is killing me. It's partially impacted and I really just need to get it out. It will flare up for a few weeks and its so hard to eat when it flares up. Then it stops for a few months and then flares up again. My ears are hurting too which I'm not sure if its related or not. I should have gotten my wisdom teeth out forever ago, but I'm the biggest wimp when it comes to the dentist.... I'm actually fearful about going to a dentist.

Another thing I've been noticing today is that I keep clenching my jaw a lot. I have a hard time just relaxing my jaw so there is constant pressure in my mouth. I don't notice I'm doing it most of the time and when I do notice it I try to relax my jaw but have a really difficult time doing so. It's like I can't stop clenching my teeth together.

Ugh..... I think I need to suck it up and face my dentist fear, but I really don't want to go.
