      Unknown (diagnosed with ETD, TMJD and Straigtened Neck)
      Does anybody know if Neck Tinnitus/TMJ can cause hyperacusis? Or it can be caused only by damage in cochlear/acoustic system?

      There is strong evidence that my tinnitus comes from my neck but I also have hyperacusis.

      Let me guess those you have spasms and shit. Hyperacusis is a stupid word. TTTS is better more complicated

      Myofascial crap Bruxism, a jackhammer, stress who knows
      I got hyperacusis, tinnitus, and TTTS shortly after painful dental work. I don't know 100% if that was the cause but it does seem very suspicious.
