I have high pitched noise in my left ear. I was hoping my diseased left TMJ being replaced would have lessened my tinnitus. Jul 15, 2024 at 1:04 PM

      I think my Eustachian tube in my left side becomes inflamed. I’ve used my EarPopper several times this morning plus Flonase.

      It’s 4:15 am and the noise in my left ear is extremely loud static. I hope a left jaw prosthetic fixes that. I won’t know for months.

      I always overreact when I wake up as it almost always calms down some.

      I’m apprehensive about left jaw prosthetic surgery but I’m somewhat committed now.

      What I would give for 3 straight days of silence in my ears/head. I’ve read jaw related tinnitus can be the most severe.

      My tinnitus changes a lot. I think it’s related to my left jaw and possibly my neck but I can’t be sure.

        Can you get an X-ray to determine that? Maybe it will find your answers.

        I’ve had imaging of my jaw and neck. My left jaw is bone on bone. I decided to go ahead with the prosthetic TMJ as one TMJ surgeon said it’s likely causing my left ear noise. I made a payment recently to get the prosthetic TMJ made. It could be inner ear damage. I have Widex Moment HA. I have not tried Lenire yet. Lenire.com has some testimonials.

        I'm curious about tmj myself. I may get those X-rays this year. I would stay away from Lenire but to each their own. The science behind it doesn't solve Tinnitus but that's my own take on it.

      Still static in left ear. It sure reduces my quality of life. TMJ surgery is in the works.

        I always felt that static was soothing, kind of like my own white noise. A lot of the T reducing modes from hearing aides use static to mask. Tonal irritates me, but not as much any more.

        I woke up to annoying static but it seems to have gone away for the most part after taking Lyrica and Ibuprofen. I’m from southern MN.

      I did take a 10mg diazepam after working out my neck yesterday. I was told diazepam is one of the best muscle relaxers.

        It doesn’t affect me too bad. There is equivalent dose charts of other benzos.

      I woke up the quietest in a long time. I exercised my neck muscles over the side of my bed vigorously. No track record yet though.

      I will be so relieved if this static noise is gone after left jaw replacement.

      My left ear has an electronic sound to it. It is very loud. I’m not looking forward to jaw surgery but the results could be very positive.

      There is quite a bit of out of network money involved to have a left jaw replaced but if my noise goes away it’s worth it.

      I took too much Lyrica last night. I have nasty static mainly in left ear. I’m afraid It might be chronic condition the rest of my life .

      Airplane barotrauma in left ear years ago could have damaged my inner ear. My left eardrum was 2/3rds full of fluid.

      Lyrica seemed to help my feet numbness a lot. I was feeling so weird mentally on Prednisone. I don’t know if anyone here has TMJ disorder?

      After taking 4mg Prednisone for 5 days I’ve had static noises in my head. It has settled back to my left ear again.

      I probably need a left prosthetic jaw. Life is too short to live with this loud noise. It takes several months to get prosthetic made.

      I think I’ll see if the TMJ Dentist that prescribed Prednisone will line me up to get a steroid injection in my left jaw.

        @gameover, I thought I was getting better with the oral prednisone. I may have a different situation than you because of my left jaw damage. Unliveable noise. Mayo Rochester surgeon didn’t think it was related to my jaw but more renowned surgeon in Arkansas thought it was. It still could be ear damage I suppose. I hope we both get better somehow regardless of the cause.

        @just1morething when you say static in your head is it in your ears and head?

      I was prescribed 2mg tablets of Prednisone twice a day for 5 days to see if my tinnitus would get better relating to left jaw inflammation.

        2mg twice a day. It really helped my aches and pains. Dentist didn’t charge anything for appointment.

      Napping is disastrous for my tinnitus when I awaken. It seems quite a bit better when wearing my Bi-Pap mask.

        I've noticed naps are horrible for my T. I always wake up with more sensitivity and reactive T. I avoid them completely

        @Nadia, sorry you have the same dilemma as I do. I have severe sleep apnea they say, 61 apneas an hour, so I try to make sure I use my Bi-Pap machine every night. Sleep apnea is hard on your body organs and could exasperate your tinnitus.

      I wish I could shut off both my static tinnitus and considerable pain. I ate 2 fast acting Tylenol capsules. See what happens.
