It might take months before I know if my TMJ surgery reduces my noise. Still swelling in front of my left ear. Jun 15, 2024 at 3:49 PM

        Biden is train wreck IMO. I will buy an extra large vegetarian pizza with beef and Canadian bacon when Trump wins my friend. Trump will have excellent cabinet members. Sorry your noise is loud. Mine is loud in left ear. I’m semi optimistic it will lessen in time. I text my surgeon’s assistant quite a bit. It will be a month since surgery on June 17th.

      I have noise in left ear. I won't know for some time if it will go away after some swelling around the front of my ear.

      I'm half-ass backwards today like my avatar. My head is noisy unfortunately. What did I do to deserve this?

      I still have bad awakening hissing primarily in my left ear. I usually take Ibuprofen and/or some other anti-inflammatory.

      I now have a prosthetic left TMJ put in by Dr. Scotty Bolding in Rogers, Arkansas on May 17th. He thought it could help my tinnitus.

        Buddy, I’m healing pretty well but still have some swelling in front of my left ear. Hopefully in time my hissing will fade. I drove my motorcycle some today and that exasperated my noise quite a bit.

      Flonase and using an EarPopper helped my noise today. I think my bad left jaw is affecting my Eustachian tube.

        Is the ear popper similar to using the valsava maneuver?

        Jaw issues can definitely impact the Eustachian tube negatively, so you might be on to something

        I feel like my jaw can sometimes make it difficult to equalize pressure. I’ve noticed some jaw movements I make can sometimes give ear fullness. Then I get pressure issues as a result.

        Yeah, the EarPopper is safer than the valsalva as it is controlled pressure. I won’t know if left jaw replacement surgery or TJR will fix my tinnitus for good until after surgery. I have a static right now that I can’t pinpoint the source. I don’t like it, very annoying.

      These bodies can be very hard to live with. Left ear static and my numb feet are raising my anxiety a lot. It’s hard to remain positive.

        @ZFire, I take 2 30mg Sudafed behind the counter. I did use Flonase and my EarPopper today also. I woke up this morning with loud high pitched noise in my left ear. It was brutal. I lose track of everything I take when my noise is horrible. I am doing pretty well atm. I still need left jaw surgery.

        Thanks. Think it’s time for me to try some decongestant.

        Would you say your tinnitus is more link to TMJ and ETD issues then it is to noise or hearing loss? I get ETD flare up (ear pressure, crackling when swallowing) , I wonder if that affects my tinnitus. In some capacity. Sometimes it feels like the case.

        Hope that jaw surgery well help you somehow.

        @ZFire, Thanks. It is coming up on May 17th. i have to pay over $20,000 out of pocket. Dr. Bolding thinks my worn out left TMJ is causing my tinnitus. I have high frequency hearing loss in both ears and it's pretty much symmetrical.

      After a short nap, I awakened to ear/head noise so loud and obnoxious, that it was rated at an 8 on the Richter scale.

      This noise I have is so loud. I put my lower jaw advancer in and took a 10mg diazepam to see if it calms down.

      I guess they can’t keep “off with the head” tinnitus formula on the shelves as it sells out quickly.

      The only thing I have to lose with replacing my worn out left TMJ is my loud noise. I feel like I’m jinxing myself. It helped others though.

      Bad left ear noise day but quite sure it is caused by left jaw inflammation. I forgot to use my jaw advancer last night.

      I think that chiropractor adjusting my jaw by jamming my worned out rough condyle into the socket made my left ear ringing much worse.

      My head is full of static sound today that is unpleasant. I did go to a chiropractor yesterday so that may have contributed possibly.

      I have light static today. I habitually try my EarPopper with Flonase but then I get sharp pain momentarily in my left jaw. Surgery in May.

        It is a left jaw prosthetic to replace my worn out left side which is bone on bone. I’m a bit apprehensive about the surgery but it should help with the inflammation and hopefully the tinnitus. My right jaw is fine.

      I woke up quiet today but had pain all over my body. I then napped and awakened with alarming left ear noise. It has now subsided.

        I'm having the same exact problem going on here lately. I've had tinnitus for over 7 years, but the last 3-4 years it haven't bothered me at all. 3 weeks ago it went haywire out of nowhere, and each time I wake up it sounds like I have a old TV inside my left ear. Usually it chills out a bit through the day, and at nighttime its down to a 2/10. Next morning tho? Back to 7/10 for several hours.

      High pitched noise in left ear upon awakening was brutal. I’m quite sure it’s related to inflammation in my left jaw.

      I hope everything works out great. I am praying for success for you. The people who had the surgery? Did they have positive feedback? May 17 th, in about 1 month. I imagine the recovery will be a few months. You'll hopefully end up with less noise and a jaw like Sean Connery, 007. Praying for you buddy

        My surgery is actually about 2 months away. My left ear noise is extreme upon awakening so I can’t wait to have it behind me. I usually try my EarPopper and Ibuprofen to knock down the noise. Thanks buddy for your concerns and advice.

      If after careful questioning. Research and weighing up the pros and cons....you conclude it's a go, then do it. I know nothing about bone on bone, it doesn't sound good. I wish I could be more helpful. Spare no expense when it comes to health. We only live once. let us know your thoughts and happenings concerning this, sincerely Daniel

        I’m doing the total jaw replacement surgery on May 17th. My left jaw is shot and there is inflammation. I think the inflammation is causing Eustachian tube dysfunction or possibly eardrum issues. It only causes pain when using my EarPopper. My right jaw is fine. The noise is the worst symptom. Thanks for thoughts and concerns. @Daniel Lion.

        I have seen multiple TMJ surgeons. Some think the damaged jaw can cause tinnitus and others don’t. I have talked to a couple people that have had the surgery. It’s much more common in women than men. I decided the noise is so debilitating that the surgery is worth the risk. You’re right you only live once.
