Brief Answer:
Can be due to misaligned teeth

Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Welcome back..

As per your answers, grinding of teeth can be due to misaligned or crooked teeth also if stress is not the culprit...

I would suggest you to consult an Orthodontist and get evaluated and he can do a thorough clinical evaluation and advise you to wear night guards and also advise a short course of low dose of anti-anxiety medications to check for the improvement so that the treatment can be done with success..

You should also get your teeth corrected and proper orthodontic treatment can be advised to align your teeth..

For breathing related problem you should consult a Pulmonologist or one who is a specialist for lung and chest related diseases..

Shivering of finger can be addressed to a Neurophysician..

Hope this helps..
