This past summer I had five molars removed on the top and had already lost an equal number on the bottom. I had to wait for three months to get the impression for the partial so everything could heal and then it did not fit properly so the whole process was repeated and I am due to see if the new one fits on Monday. Since late December I have had a feeling of ears being clogged and a continaul ringing in my ears which is, of course, worse at night and in the early morning. I have been to an EMT who can not seem to find a serious sinus or ear infection despite my noticing congestion, drainage, etc. My thinking was blocked ears due to sinus congestion, but I am beginning to wonder now if this is TMJ related. The ENT thought I had some TMJ.
So, my question is - has anyone experienced ear ringing with TMJ? If so, what, if anything, helped to relieve that? This is so annoying and uncomfortable and I feel like I am going in circles trying to find an answer. Any thoughts or experiences would be most helpful.
