      Tinnitus Since:
      So I made a visit to my 3rd ENT here in NYC since my fall in Mid March and this ENT believes that the jaw injury from my face hitting the concrete might have altered one of the discs/ligaments in my right ear.

      I suffer from reactive unilateral tinnitus in my right ear which the doctors at first believe was tied to inner ear injury. However as all my hearing tastes are normal/above average the belief is now neck/jaw.

      Does anyone else on this board ever had a TMJ/TMD related tinnitus?

      Can anyone else adjust the frequency of their tinnitus when they chew with their back teeth ?

      My right ear tinnitus greatly changes frequency when i open my mouth widely and chew down with my teeth. Does anyone else have similar symptoms?

      You need to see a Maxillofacial dentist who treats tinnitus that's caused by misaligned jaw. He can fit you with a repositioning splint (like a mouth guard) that will most likely cure your T. My daughter did that and now no T at all.
