        @LukeYoung Butttt this removal was for not only getting them suckers out bcuz they didn't need to be there, but they were causing more problems for my bite and my TMJ sO. Hopefully after I am all healed up and treat my habitual clenching with a guard my T will reduce if not go away c:

        @LukeYoung SORRY one last thing, lol. The lidocaine has already worn off for me. If I am not mistaken, that causes the facial numbness, yes? I only have the tiniest numbness in my tongue but other than that all feeling is back

        Yes lidocaine is the local anaesthetic they use most of the time. It’s what causes the numbness. See how you go over the next few days. I also have TMJ.

      So scared to get my wisdom teeth removed. I couldn't care less about the pain, I'm worried about my T and if it'll make it permanently worse

        Update: My T is actually quieter..I was expecting it to at least get worse for a bit but not yet. I'm just in a lot of pain and my wounds won't stop bleeding :(

        No worries Sabrina. Anxiety is a nuisance condition, and hyper-focusing on breathing etc is definitely a symptom. I've had all kinds of other weird anxiety symptoms too, like nerve pain, twitching etc. All went away. It's because when we're incredibly stressed and anxious, the body begins to play up physically. Once you tackle the anxiety, all the physical manifestations will stop.

        Re the eye issues, it helped me to go to the optician to rule out any vision problems and put my mind at rest. Once I knew that I wasn't in danger of losing my sight, that made it much easier to deal with.

        @Tanni Ah, tyty! I'm seeing the eye doctor on the 28th and I'm sure everything will be fine. But I did get my lungs x-rayed and tested for covid and everything was perfect..so now I know it's just anxiety. Which- still isn't fun but at least I can stop fearing that I'm dying, yk?

      Anxiety and panic disorder is just- the worst. I am hyper-focusing now on simple things like breathing and my vision. I'm in constant fear

      Stress/anxiety is what caused my T in the first place, I believe. It caused me to clench my jaw, bite my nails, etc and now my jaw's fucked

      Ever since my Saturday panic attack I have been hearing voices and sounds when I close my eyes to go to bed. Is this T or panic? Idk...

        You know what, that happens to me from time to time also when I'm in bed, and it used to happen every day after having my big spike. I thought I was going crazy... I definitely think it's part of the stress/anxiety

        Yes, a therapist who can help you develop strategies and coping mechanisms to help overcome the panic attacks and anxiety. But to be honest, I thought a psychiatrist should be helping you do that (?).

        @Gman Nah, psychiatrists are only drug dealers. They just prescribe you meds and that's it. I learned from a nursing student (probably shouldn't trust him lmao, but-) that both meds my psychiatrist has prescribed me can cause tinnitus :D Even when I told her I had it already. SO, they really aren't looking out for your wellbeing they're just there to hand out drugs.

        Karens are people who are doing what they think society wants them to do, and who are attacking anyone who isn't doing what Karen thinks they should be doing. So when you are confronting a person who isn't wearing a mask, you are being "a Karen." If you think for yourself and as a result of that choose to not wear a mask, you are being the opposite of a Karen.

        @Bill Bauer Idk Karens have infamously been labeled as the old (typically, but can be younger) white women who go into stores complaining about having to wear a mask and making a huge fuss in front of everyone. You can find compilations of these Karens on youtube LOL.

        @Bill Bauer They're also old white women who call the police on black people for just walking down the street. Or calling the police on a lil kid who's just selling food because he doesn't have a permit. Idk, maybe there could be multiple breeds of Karen but to me and a lot of people on the internet, these are the types of things Karens do.

        @sabrina.t Yeah, there is always two sides. Both have their good and bad. I feel more confident in Mike Pence than Kamala Harris because of his experience, should something happen to the president.

        @just1morething I think Mike Pence is smarter and has more experience than Trump but I find myself strongly disagreeing with him on many things so- I wouldn't vote for Trump or Pence. I don't agree with everything Biden says or his past policies, but I think he is capable of leading. If I had the choice I wouldn't vote for either T or B but I just chose who I think is better between the two

        Sounds like "fleeting tinnitus". Search this forum - this is normal. Some of us even think that this is our bodies' attempt to re-calibrate and heal.

    Tinnitus Since:
    07/07/2020
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    Most likely TMJ Dysfunction from clenching and wisdom teeth
    My name is Sabrina and I am 21 years old c: My T started on July 7th. It was very random, I just woke up to a lot of pressure in my right ear and as the day went on I could hear a low humming in that ear. Since then, my T has changed in the type of sound (ringing, humming, buzzing, etc.), loudness/volume, pitch, and location (started in my right ear and went to the left eventually as well but much quieter). I have not had a proper diagnosis, but through an oral surgeon telling me that there is evidence in the right side of my jaw that I am clenching, the most probable explanation for my T is TMD as well as my wisdom teeth. I have had every test imaginable to prove the problem is not with my ears or head.

    Enough about my T..perhaps you'd like to get to know me a bit more, eh? I am a junior in college. I recently changed my major to Criminal Justice and Criminology and I am minoring in Psychology of Crime and Justice. School takes up a lot of my time, and with COVID as well as my introverted ways, I do not leave my house or room much :c Most of my social interaction is online with friends I have met there. I do not have many hobbies..but I do LOVE to dance. I also love k-pop c: My ultimate groups are BTS and TXT. While I love k-pop, my favorite type of music will always be rock n' roll babyyy :rockingbanana: Some of my favorite rock bands are Nirvana, Bring Me the Horizon, Babymetal, Foo Fighters, Blink 182, A Day to Remember, Issues, MCR, Paramore, and many many more. My fave probably being Nirvana or ADTR :) I have a cat. She is my baby, though she is a bit of a scaredy (sp?) cat from her days on the streets. But she loves me c:

    That's just a little about me and my T journey thus far c: Sorry I type so much..I always get a bit carried away. But anyways, message me if you have any questions or just wanna chat! I could always use some more online friends.
