      Pregnancy or mild hearing loss.. Who knows.
      From what I've learned about it, braces can actually be the cause of TMJ. If your jaw is misaligned I would recommend seeking out a TMJ specalist in your area and getting a jaw splint that you wear mainly at night or all the time in the beginning. Be deligent about going in for regular adjustments (1-2 times a week in the beginning) and know that it takes time before it improves. If you find yourself a good dentist, you will absolutely see improvement. Avoid letting them adjust your teeth themselves, instead insist on a hard splint that they can adjust . Adjustments on teeth are terrible and hard to reverse. I've been battling TMJ for about 2 years, regularly seeking treament for 1.5 and after finding the perfect dr for me saw life-changing improvement in 6 months.

      Love your picture. Natsu ftw!
      I'm going through TMJ treatment right now. All my problems are on the right side, including tinnitus.
      Ride side of my jaw clicks, pops, ear spasms, etc. Started treatment this past Thursday. No hearing loss. Only 22. Hoping if I get TMJ fixed the tinnitus will go with it. I've read stories of success and failure so we'll see.
