      Last night every time I would lie on my side, I got a 5x times louder high pitched sound that goes away after a bit from popping my ears with my jaw... What the heck!

      It seems like fleeting tinnitus but longer, sometimes 1-2 minutes, idk if it goes away from popping my ears or just on its own

      Could be TMJ.
      Try sleeping on your back and see if it still happens...lots of love glynis

      Yea! When I was on my back it wasn't happening as much, still may have happened a few seconds though! My jaw was also sore, how does TMJ do this though!?

      By putting pressure on your jaw the side you sleep and probably bringing teeth or clenching your jaw

      I would get it checked out. If TMJ is the underlying cause then treating it might improve your T symptoms.

      TMJ might be worsening your symptoms. I'm not saying that your T would go away completely, especially if it's caused by noise exposure in the beginning, but it might improve with treatment. The loudness you're experiencing by laying on the side is uncommon for regular T caused by noise. It is most likely caused by something else, therefore I would see someone. Just to get an opinion. It might be treatable, and it that cause it's worth the shot. At least if this kind of T is bothering you.
