    TMJ and pushing and crunching in my left ear

    Hey everyone,

    Around January of this year I woke up with a very stiff jaw and a horrible humming and ringing sound in my ears. At night when I would lay down on my back my jaw would hurt some kind of bad.

    I went to my primary doctor who did the test where she put her fingers in my ears and had me open and close my jaw. While doing this I could feel something in my ear pushing on her finger and it would have a crunching sound.

    Since then I have rested my jaw and been conscious about not clenching my teeth during the day from stress. My dentist said I have signs of TMJ. Thankfully the Tinnitus has gone down about 90%, but the crunching in my ear is still there. I only notice it when I do the test my primary doctor did.

    Does anyone know what that is? is it my jaw bone pushing into my ear and rubbing against something? I still need to see a TMJ specialist im am just waiting for my new insurance to start in June.
