Vertigo, Dizziness, Nausea, Earache, Headache
Visiting from the GERD board (another issue I have). I have been having problems with ear fullness, dizziness/vertigo (especially when bending over), headaches (they come on out of nowhere and can be extremely painful, then go away as quickly as the came), ear ringing, etc. My ENT originally diagnosed me with a likely inner ear viral infection or a Eustacian Tube Disorder and recommended daily regiment of Psudefafed. Unfortunately, shortly after I saw him he died (no kidding) so I'm starting over with a new ENT on Wed.
I was wondering how common the above symptoms are with TMJ. I have had for as long as I can remember a clicking sound in my jaw, usually it only happens the very first time I open my jaw wide for the day. After that, it usually doesn't happen again. I don't know that the 2 are connected, but I haven't found any other disorder/disease that has all the symptoms I mentioned above other than TMJ, so I'd like to suggest that to my doctor when I see him on Wed.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
