      Hi everyone,

      maybe some of you know that i participated in the AM101 trial. One thing i noticed is while being examined is that my left ear canal is very sensitive. I have tinnitus only in my left ear so i was wondering if something like muscle tension or pain in the outer ear canal could cause tinnitus...

      i've seen a dentist-specialist for TMJ disorders and he told me everything was OK, yet i've seen a few ostheopaths and they all told me my jaw had "something".

      the dentist told me TMJ tinnitus is intermittent. Mine is constant and the pitch is very high, maybe something like 15khz.


      What options could i take ?
      Thanks,

      I have very mild pulsing T in my left ear. I have no TMJ, but I do feel a bit more sensitive to the left physical ear area.

      Hi :)

      Im no doctor, but yes, I believe that muscle tension can cause tinnitus by misaligning the middle ear ossicles being one cause. I also read that this is possible. A neighbour of mine, a retired physio told me he had treated a lot of patients that had tinnitus because of muscle tension in the past, and he said that if muscle tension is the cause, tinnitus should go away once the tension is released.
