Hello everyone, Steve, 25, from UK here. I've had 'mild' T in both ears for as long as I can remember. I hardly ever used to notice it and it hardly ever affected me. However since about 3 months ago (May 2014), it has started producing a new sound (high pitched ringing which can be heard over most things.) It has reached a 'moderate' level in my right ear and 'mild/moderate' in my left. I've tried to narrow down on what has changed within the past 3 months: Potential causes: • Slightly impacted wisdom tooth on lower left side. It's 'partially' in my gum and has been there for about a year now. Saw a dentist in March - was advised to keep it clean and 'wait' - if it gets infected/abscess then we can remove it. (so I have to wait to be in excruciating pain before they can do anything) As of right now, I can feel it putting ever more pressure on my jaw. • I used to wear braces at 16 (I'm 25 now) so I think I may have a mis-aligned bite. I can hear a faint 'clicking' sound in my ears if I hold my jaw in a certain place. (only in a very quiet room though). And I know I clench my jaw in my sleep too. However have no other jaw related pain. (TMJ?) Potential Agitators: • Stopped training at the gym since March 2014. (looking to get back by mid-October) • Gym used to keep my posture in check, I slouch and work on a pc everyday, I'm thinking this may have agitated it • New expensive headphones. Very clear in the higher frequencies. I never listen at loud volumes however I think the clarity may have deceived me and had them on for 1 hour max and a moderately high volume. So, what action have I taken? I visited my GP this morning explaining all the above. • Result: Got told to take a blood test? - not sure this is relevant but will get it done anyway. What should I do next? • Push for some kind of specialist scans through the NHS - for my jaw area/ wisdom tooth? • Visit my dentist and get him to look at it? • (GP advice) Wait patiently till I can get back to the gym and back into my old active lifestyle to see if this helps? • See a specialist asap? (could anyone recommend something in the Midlands) • Any other advice? Thanks for taking the time to read this!
