Thumbs down What in the world am I going to do about my ears???? They Hurt :(

I don't know what to do for my ears. I mean it is like a weird feeling all-day long!! It sucks really bad!!

I hate it I can't take it anymore my teeth hurt so bac because I can't keep from clenching. Have any of you had this and had TMJ surgery or splint therapy and did it work for you?? I would appreciate anything!!! thanks

Hi:
Surgery won't stop you from clenching but it can give you more problems and pain than you ever dreamed possible. I'm just very concerned about anyone who is willing to rush into surgery without first trying every possible non-invasive therapy. So far, splint therapy is working very well for me. Are you currently under splint therapy? If not, consider trying that first.

I appreciate your response and no, I am not in splint therapy. I was not stating that I wanted surgery right away but it get's very annoying and painful to have TMJ ya know? I mean I will try splint therapy frst but I just hate it and I would never consider havng surgery right off the bat.
Thanks,
*~Ear~*

Cool

Splint therapy resolved my ear problems - ringing, pain, itchiness, full feeling - everything.

Marlene,

How long with the splint until you noticed results?

I am going on week 2 on Monday, and NO changes in Ear Symptoms.

Changes I have noticed:

- I don't snore anymore (so says my girlfriend)
- I don't think I am waking up at night anymore, not that I can recall (I usually can recall)
- I can stick my finger in my left ear (used to feel blocked off)

Keep in mind that 95% of my ear problems are in my RIGHT ear (fullness, hyperacusis, popping) with clicking coming in BOTH ears when "hearing" sounds.

I wanna rip this thing out of my mouth! I am less convinced then before.

Well I will be going to a specialist so hopefully I can get a splint and I hope mine takes my ear problems away!!

I hope so, I feel bad for them they are always in pain.

Hi all,

I don't know if everyone with tmj snores but the very first thing that happened for me with splint therapy is my snoring stopped!

Jamie,

To the best of my recollection, it was about 6 months before my ear symptoms were relieved with my splint.
