      Sounds like reason enough to start wearing that splint again at night! And probably also during the day, if you keep having the habit of taking it out at night. I’m having the splint in right now, because I know I have the automatic, subconscious habit of having my back teeth touch, which I’m seldom aware of. Wearing that splint trains me in not doing that. If you train your jaws enough, they might stop doing it at night as well.

      Having my splint in for just an hour, and it already feels weird to have my back teeth touch when I take it out. All of a sudden I notice I have to force my lower jaw a bit to the back, in order for them to ‘fit’.

      By the way, if I sleep in a certain position, on my belly with my head to the left, it aggravates my T, so I’ve stopped doing this. Is this another sign my T could be TMJ related?

      I know it started with acoustic trauma, but my doctor then noticed a LOT of earwax and syringed it. That evening, I had silence for a while, only for it to return a few days later - more annoying than before. From then in I started noticing the crunching ear sounds when swallowing, and a ‘full’ ear feeling after running, which I did not have when I ran before the syringing.

      Could all this point to inflammation related worsening?
