can loud noise aggravate tmj symptoms?

hello. i've been diagnosed with tmj. had it for many years. i am wondering if anyone has had the same experience i have...perhaps once a year i am in a situation which is LOUD and when i say loud i mean within the realms of normal but definitely excessive. i am usually good about wearing earplugs to preserve my hearing but you know, once a year or so i'll be in a situation where i don't have them, wasn't expecting a loud night, whatever. so two weeks ago i was at a club for a birthday party with many other people (none of whom seemed really bothered by the loud sound levels making me think perhaps tmj makes my ears more sensitive). i woke up the next day with a rotating cast of tmj symptoms including ear fullness, ear pain, ear ringing (wild oscillating noises at points), crackling and crunching sounds and sensations when opening and closing my jaw....two weeks later i'm still in quite a lot of pain, feel congested, having trouble sleeping due to the noises in my ears. the previous two times this has happened the symptoms have eventually subsided but until they actually stop it's really frustrating and depressing but i'm wondering if i'm crazy and loud noise wouldn't be an aggravating factor anyway. thank you for any input!
