Hi Everyone! Wanted to start a post to see how many others have TMJ issues to go along with their MD. I mentioned my story last year, read it here to get the full story... 10+years of Tinnitus and Meniere's Like many of us I go back and forth trying to figure out what caused my MD. Obviously there are DOZENS of possibilities, but the one that always seems to be top of mind is my TMJ disorder. Shortly after my first my MD attack (2009), I began to experience jaw clicking, crunching and Tinnitus all within a week or two. Since that time I also began to notice that I grind my teeth, especially at night. So now I'm back to "TMJ is causing my Tinnitus and MD symptoms" -Is the jaw inflamed causing a circulation issue? -Is the jaw affecting the eustachian tube function and causing a drainage issue? -Is the the TMJ pressing against the ear causing the Tinnitus? These are all potential causes in my mind. Im assuming the grinding is the culprit. So what causes the grinding? poor sleep habits? stress? caffeine, nervous system issues? Perhaps all of the above causes the grinding. So now I'm back to wearing a basic night guard, along with TMJ massage, and neck and ear stretches to help with my tinnitus. Is it as simple as Grinding=TMJD=Tinnitus+MD? Anyone else have TMJ issues relating to their MD? Ive seen a couple posts on here mentioning TMJ but would love to hear from other TMJ sufferers. Thanks in advance!
