      I have unilateral tinnitus (left ear) with variable intensity. When the lower jaw is shifted (by hand) sideways to the right, the tinnitus becomes significantly louder.
      I do not have tinnitus in my right ear. However, when I move my lower jaw with my hand to the left, I have a similar beeping sound in my right ear as on the left, but much quieter.

      Question: Is tinnitus with lateral shifting of the lower jaw actually present in everyone and a completely normal phenomenon, - or not?

      That's the question.
      My jaw is messed up, which I believe contributes to the severity of my tinnitus. While I'm hesitant to move my jaw with my hand right now (it dislocated a few times this month and it's still painful) moving my jaw in general does change my tinnitus.

      My tinnitus is exactly the same hissing sound that I can also produce by shifting my jaw sideways.
