      Hi guys,

      I just discovered that when I move my lower jaw forward/ Backward the ringing increases or change in tone.

      Any ideas what would be the cause?

      Thanks

      Further, when I move it forward. The ringing stops for like a fraction of a second and comes again. Like switching it on/off.

      Who should consult? My ent doc?

      I have the same thing. Also if I push on my chin, chew, swallow and yawn.

      I heard, there's a thing called the ganglia box, located around the ear and jaw junction, where lots of nerves collect. Could be the issue?

      Instead of an ENT, see a TMJ specialists or a Neurologist.

      Could be yes I just started treating them but one of the things he gave me to sleep has definitely help my t a little granted I gotta wear the thing for 12'weeks. Also sleeping on my opposite t side makes me wake up with my t lower for some rreason

      This is one of the things he made me, It's adjusted every week,as you can see , my jaw / teeth should be on a u shape they are on a v shape not to mention other things,prior to my t I was grinding and clenching really hard at night while I slept.

      Ah crap forgot to include the file

      I think you are right, maybe not everyone but certainly the majority.
      I certainly can.

      The TMJ conumdrum,I have yet to see anyone on any forum say TMJ treatment helped their T which can cost thousands if they really are TMJ specialists ie braces which need constant adjustment ,many bite plates as things adjust etc ,over 2 years treating

      True. Seeking TMJ specialists for T relief is almost always a waste of time and money. Of course they are going to find ''problems'' with your TMJ. That's how they stay in business.
