    Unhappy TMD/TMJ/MFPS hearing and balance problems

    Do any of you who suffer from myofacial pain syndrom (or TMD or TMJ) have hearing and balance problems as a result of it. Specifically, distorted (buzzy/fuzzy) heaering without any measurable hearing loss? Blance problems being constant unsteadiness, but not spinning vertigo.

    Thumbs up

    Welcome, Have you read through all the postings? If not, you should, you will find a lot of symtoms. I get ear pain and high pitch noise and it's like being under water. I feel off balance and walk into things. Have you been to a specialist? Rhumatologist or Infectious disease doc? Have you talked to your coc. about this? If not you should. Also, some meds can cause some of these symtoms. Take care and good luck, Kim

    Ohh, Kim, I'm seeing every doctor and dentist imaginable. Noone can figure out what is going on expect that I have not "lost" any hearing since my problems began, even though everything sounds like crap. I orginally blamed an existing TMD problem (TMJ joint is OK), and I have one dentist that agrees, but all the other docs think that this is just part of a larger problem. I hope that his is not FMS, 'cos then there is no cure or even effective treatment.

    I can't find any information to support distorted hearing from TMD. What do you meen by underwater hearing. Warbly? Fuzzy?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Hi Mike, I mean, it's like when you are swimming under water. It makes it kind of muffeled. I hope you don't have FMS to. Have you seen an FMS specialist? The type I founf to be best is the Infectious desease specialist, mine also specialises in FMS and CFS and is board certified in all three. Take care, Kim

    Exclamation

    Hi Mike, welcome to our group. I have FM?CFS and my balance has been really off for a couple of years. It's not constant, but enough to be worrysome and embarrasing. I've almost fallen off steps, etc, and when I stand up sometimes I'll stagger. There is no vertigo, no warning. It just happens. Sometimes walking I probably look like a person who has had a few too many! Thank goodness I have no ear or hearing problems. I have enough others! Have you been to an audiologist? Good luck, and I sure hope you don't have FM. Linda D

    welcome, Mr. Mike. I am here because my daughter has been diagnosed with FMS. But she has always had some balance problems. A year ago she also started getting dizzy, and at the moment, during this current flare she is very unsteady -- fell down some stairs the other day, in fact. No hearing problems that she has reported, tho.
