      Does yawning change anyone else's tinnitus?

      Ear popping also changes mine.

      Physically manipulating my ear canal also changes my tinnitus, makes the sound change.


      Do these things happen to anyone else?

      Thanks :)

      Oh yeah. If I yawn hard enough my mouth opens wide and my ear canal kinda vibrates as it's stretched or whatever and it kinda blocks out my first whistling T tone. Sadly it doesn't cancel out my other tones :(

      Yep. Classic symptom with somatic T.

      So there might be something wrong with my neck/jaw?

      No, not necessarily and probably not. If you read about somatic T (good threads here at TT) you'll find that one of the main theories is around an area called Dorsal Cochlear Nucleus in the brain, which 'mixes' signals wrong from the ear + muscles in the head/neck region, which causes T spikes.

      Oh interesting, I'll take a look.

      I should also mention I had PT for a while (not sure if I still have) and also I get a woosh in my left ear if I touch anywhere on that side of my head.

      I read something on google about how yawning opens and closes our eustachian tubes and it makes things quieter but I can't find the article!

      You may not remember or have taken any notice before you had T but, yawning and or clenching your teeth does make a type of ringing sound, one would presume from your muscles tightening around your inner ear canal, and is a very normal function that even people with no T experiences!
      I have nothing wrong with my neck or jaw and I still experience this and it is a separate noise to my normal T.
