      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      fire cracker went off next to left ear
      I used to grind my teeth a lot in my younger days possibly due to stress. I've read a lot about muscle relaxation, etc.

      DENTIST states that I do not have TMJ/D disorder.

      Does anyone out there share the same "experience" that I do in that I can STOP the tinnitus sound on my right ear by clenching my jaw together? When I release it the sound comes back.

      I believe this might be classified as somatosensory tinnitus.

      Any feedback is appreciated. I am currently going through TRT with Oticon tinnitus maskers. I will have an appointment with Otolaryngologist in August. I believe I am going down the right path.

      I don't mind sharing, I reside in Louisville KY in the USA.
