  • omg I've noticed the same exact thing about myself lately!! Esp the fordyce spots that just came out of nowhere... if you suddenly came under a lot of stress/have dry skin, it could be that, that's what i was told it was by my esthetician (who's also a dr.)I have an overbite that didn't start bothering me until recently, and i find my muscles get really tense at my temples, just from talking or eating.Before getting an explanation, I found myself panicking and LOOKING for weirdness in my mouth, and it turned out to be nothing but my imagination. As long as you're not running a fever, nauseous, or in pain you should be okay

  • if it is fordyces spots, its nothing to worry about, its just a normal variation. how do the strange lines run? just a line or a net formation? maybe you are a cheek chewer. check out if the line is running along the teeth line. maybe you are doing it at night without knowing about it. if you chew on your cheeks they will respond with something called hyperkeratosis, whick is a thickening of the epithelium that protects the tissue below, wich will disappear after you quit chewing.
