Default Muscle relaxers?

I went to the dentist today because Iíve been having pain. I told her I thought it was from clenching my teeth but I just wanted to be sure. She said it was from clenching and she didnít see any cavityís or anything else . But she said that itís really starting to affect my jaw and that it will eventually start to cause neck and back issues. Which I do already have but I never realized were associated with my clenching. She suggested some things including asking my doctor for muscle relaxers.

Iím not sure about this. Arenít these really dangerous? Plus what doctor do I even ask about this? Psych or GP? My mom said psych because clenching is an anxiety issue. But does anyone use muscle relaxers or know anything about them?

Spongebob: crying my eyes out.
Squidward: Well, hurry up! I gotta cry too!

Rupaul: You can call me he, you can call me she. You can call me Regis and Kathy Lee. I donít care, as long as you call me.
