Post Squishy noise in ear

Can TMJ represent a squishy noise in the ear?

I get a sound like that when I open and close my mouth. It is kind of a crackling sound in my ear. I only get it when I'm in discomfort. My discomfort comes and goes.

I get it when I push on the bottom of my ear lobe and then I hear the squishy noise like someone is walking with water in their shoes. Is that part of TMJ?

i get the same thing- mostly when i swallow, but with other fuctions, it comes and goes. the "walking in water" statement fits it perfectly.

Happens here as well. Funny thing is when I told the doctor that it made that noise when I pressed by the ear lobe he looked at me like I had three heads. I also told him that when I press there, I can get some of the pressure to clear. Again, three heads. He said that there is nothing in that area and also showed me pictures. Well, there is something happening when I press there because I do get some relief! My guess is it causes the Eustation tube to open or clear.. just a guess.

I get the same kind of sounds when I press with my finger in front of my left ear around the joint area, as though there is a fluid in that area.

Al4,

Have you seen a doc for it? If so, what did they say? What do you do about it? Drives me nuts!

I started seeing a TMJ doc a few months back but for ear symptoms only. The doc has not been helpful with them. He only wants to talk about pain, which I never had in the first place! The squishy sound comes and goes, but I think it is related to the joint problems. Sorry I do not have anything for it at the moment.
