    Any help or advice please ?

    Hi everyone,

    I believe I have some sort of tmj disc issue, that im adamant is the cause of my horrible tinnitus since getting hit in the ear/tmj area 2 and a half years ago. Ive seen audioligsts and ent rule out any damage to my ears through mri scans and hearing tests that indicate I have excellent hearing.

    However my fixation with tinnitus coming from my ears has blinded me that the real issue may be my tmj. I have a clicking/grating noise on closure, but no click on opening, (which I believe is a sign of anterior disc displacement with reduction), no real pain and about 40mm of mouth opening, however I constanly have ringing, ear fullness and pain.

    Last week I discovered a lump just infront of my ear/on tmj area that ive never found before that feels like cartlidge ontop of the condyle. Im now starting to wonder if its actually my tmj disc I can feel sticking out.

    Is this possible that it could be my disc im feeling or some sort ligaments and what could I do to try and treat this ?

    Any advice on this would be great.

    Thanks

    You could get an MRI of your TMJ, that way you'd know more.

    Go see an Oral Surgeon... a specialized dentist who is able to preform the right tests- and treat TMJ.

    Your dentist can recommend one to you.
