I began experiencing tinnitus about two months ago. It's much more pronounced in my left ear, particularly when I yawn or move my jaw a certain way. I have mild high frequency hearing loss. My ENT physician told me it was probably linked to my caffeine consumption. I know there's a lot of anecdotal evidence linking caffeine to tinnitus, but I also know there was a recent study in the UK that found no correlation. Has anyone had relief by cutting out caffeine? In addition, the past two weeks or so, I've been having neck and jaw pain and tension. My doctor thinks that the tinnitus is making me clench my jaw when I sleep, but I get the symptoms during the day as well. I know that TMJD has been linked to tinnitus. Has anyone experienced the onset of other TMJD symptoms - pain in the jaw, neck, etc., - after the tinnitus started? Thanks very much.
