      Tinnitus Since:
      november 2020
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Stress/music from headphones/medications/eustachian tube

      In May 2020 I had an accident where I developed an inflammation in my jaw and facial muscles. I was in heavy pain over 6 months, until October 2020, because of this.

      After just one month of being pain free I got tinnitus for the first time in November 2020... It came out of nowhere right after I was taking a shower.

      So my question is: Is it possible that the TMJ pain I was suffering from has something to do with my tinnitus? Even if I am not having pain in my jaw anymore? I was in so much pain for several months so maybe the tinnitus is the «price» to pay after the pain? I can sometimes still get pain in my jaw if I am under A LOT of stress, but it lasts just for a couple of hours.

      I hope you guys have some experiences and thoughts to share.

      Thank you!
