      ... but unfortunately, came back within 2 minutes. The silence was glorious. I was tempted to go ahead and not do ANYTHING after that. What I learned from this is that biting down on my salad like this, was on the right hand side. The same side I had dental work done. I'm starting to wonder if this dental work is the root cause of the tinnitus and if I should go ahead and get the teeth yanked at this point (already had new crowns put on that were aligned as even as possible, as well as TMJ treatment since I now clench teeth in sleep). At this point, how do I go about to convince my dentist to yank the teeth? He said there was no need as they were functional. It's the 2 bottom molars that had the crowns put on (#30 & #31) but could it be possible that the opposing tooth on the top is also an issue? Hmm

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Probably headphones
      Or it could very well just be a coincidence. A random happy occurence, which hopefully comes back... :)

      There was a famous a actor who had all his teeth extracted to cure his tinnitus, will have to do a search to find out his name.
