Oral fixation help.

I have an obsession of chewing on the inside of my cheeks. It's become so bad that I'm chewing off skin and bleeding often. I cannot chew gum or candy to stop the habit because I have jaw problems. I am also a smoker and that helps to keep me from biting, but that is not a good habit to switch to. Does anyone know of something I can do or something I can chew on that will help me to stop the biting and cut down on cigarettes?

Hi there. This could be tic which is a sudden, non rhythmic motor movement or vocalization involving discrete muscle groups. These could be abdominal tensing or toe crunching, eye blinking and throat clearing are also such activities. Differentiate from other movement disorders like chorea, dystonia, myoclonus, autism related. Also these could be compulsions related to obsessive compulsive disorders and seizure activity. Consult a neurologist and get a detailed clinical evaluation done. Take care
