8 months ago I had a bridge placed. I now have pulling at the site, muscle tightness in my jaw, neck, shoulder; muscle spasms in neck, and dry mouth. My jaw feels like it doesn’t move right. Tmj doc says nothings wrong with my jaw. Dentist sees no problem with bridge. Endodontist says the nerves are fine. The constant pulling sensation drives me crazy! No one has any suggestions for me :(
Any idea what’s going on??

I can't explain the dry mouth other than any new medications or herbal supplements were taken. The simplest possible fix is to go to the local drugstore and try a night guard. If not, have your dentist check the biting of the new bridge.
