      I just discovered that when I bend my neck to the left I get a straight tone. And when I straighten it back up it stops.. Is this possible? I have had a stiff neck for a few years...
       
    2. yes!!! google scm muscle and T, you are on to something :) anyways, I have tmj and neck issues and know for a fact, that certain positions like straining cause me another T and when i do trigger point work on myself/google clair davies...My ear symptoms diminish...however my tmj is quite severe and by the next day or after I eat, I am back in spasm...so, yes, scm muscle...:)

      Hello @Vegas Robb - Yes, I believe your neck can be a factor in your T. My T started a long time ago, but so did my neck problems. I was literally out of my mind with horrendous noise yesterday and today I am much better. I massaged my neck muscles and tried to have better posture. I also started doing physical therapy on my upper body and neck. I am thru seeing Chiros for awhile as their bone cracking might do more harm than good.

      I took quite a few pills that may have helped...gabapentin/clonazepam combo, sulphur pills (you put 4 under your tongue) I referenced this website the other day on somatic tinnitus. Greg & others have some great ideas there. http://www.dailystrength.org/c/Tinnitus/forum/6659570-somatic-tinnitus

      I am certain my tinnitus is related to my trap spasms and environment noise in my daily life. And stretching and strengthening helps some...

      My physiotherapist moved the ultrasound probe over my neck muscles and my T STOPPED completely for 2 days! I believe my neck is causing most of the tinnitus as my tinnitus started after I hit my head which I suspect might have injured my neck as well

      Stiff neck and muscle spasms can cause tinnitus. TENS machine and ultrasound is of immense help here

      Not so sure now...
      I did some GENTLE neck exercises and stretching and now my tinnitus is through the roof. I have always been able to change the volume and pitch of it even when it wasn't so bad. But I never had this reaction. It started about 5 days ago when I saw some neck exercises on YouTube and followed along. I wish I never did that. My ears are SCREAMING. I feel like I'm losing my mind. I'm having panic attacks.
      I posted on Benzobuddies about 6 days ago how wonderful I was feeling and how my tinnitus had finally went away and now this.
