Trouble eating, Teeth Grinding

We have a 12+ year old Lab Chow female mix.  The past couple of weeks we have noticed that she will start "chewing" and it will sound like she is eating hard bones.  As we have examined her it appears that she is grinding her teeth and is in distress when this occurs.  It seemed to be happening at night until today.  It has happened several times in the last 6 hours.  She has a good appetite otherwise.  She also has had a chronic skin condition [dry skin and itching] and we have to be careful what we bath her with.  When stress occurs she seems to chew at her back and tail incessantly.  I share  these last conditions in case they might be related to the first.  What do you think we are dealing with?
