Can you all help me?

Hi everyone--

I am normally on the inner ear board, but Im wanting to ask some questions on here as well.
Here are my symptoms:
My main symptom is a 24/7 spacey, disconnected feeling
brain fog
neck and shoulder pain
very loud ringing in ears 24/7
ear fullness

I do also have some jaw pain, mainly on my left side--I have been told that I do have TMJ, but can it cause all of these symptoms?? I have had a million tests done including MRI's, CT scans, ENG, EKG, spinal tap, and tons of blood work and everything comes back great. I have had this spacey feeling for a very very very long time, and I just dont know what to do anymore.
I do have some sinus problems which I see a great ENT for, but even when my sinuses are fine, the spacey feeling is always still there. Another way I would describe it is like a dream-like state. Very frustrating!!

Anyways, any help or comments would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Hi schao

I have had very similiar symptoms for about 4 years. The neck and shoulder pain though has subsided. I also get occcasional migraines also but I have almost eliminated those through diet (I narrowed it down to caffeine and/or sodium nitrates). The ear-ringing is very annoying. Every time I open my jaw or swallow both my ears (tubes) crackle. My doctor said I have Eustachian Tube Disorder. I don't have any solutions for you and I'm new to this board but, if you find any help or relief, please let me know! Thanks.

You know, your symptoms also sound like you might possibly have fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. You could have one or both of these in addition to TMJ.
