      are you sure its cause of what you said or is it louder because you are in a quite environment?
      btw i feel the same thing....but it bothers me less now than when i initially got it!
      also i think i have tmj...i can hear constant clicks when i move my jaw.
      sadly neither of these 2 conditions (tinnitus, tmj) can be diagnosed to the best of my understanding.

      I can make the sound even louder by changing head position. Especially putting it on a pillow or tilting head backwards.

      You might benefit from neck massage. Until then do not tilt your head backwards:)

      TMJ can absolutely be diagnosed and treated. I had issues with TMJ four years ago, and underwent treatment successfully. Most people can be treated with just a simple mouth guard.

      there are studies done to show that a mouth guard has no efficacy in treating tmj. Indeed MANY studies show that it may WORSEN tmj. neways...i cant say nething conclusive on this but DONT use it if ur tmj isnt bothering u!
