I am hoping someone can give their thoughts on tinnitus and jaw/wisdom teeth issues.
Here is my story....
I have been suffering with tinnitus now for around 4 years, MRI clear, hearing perfectly normal, no infections, ear drum perfectly healthy.
I understand tinnitus can happen for no reason and maybe I am searching for one and need to accept that mine has no direct link to any health issue.
However, following a CT scan of my sinuses they found a wisdom tooth stuck in my jaw line with no where to go. It's on the left side which is where I have the tinnitus, may be just a coincidence!
My tinnitus has been that bad over the past few weeks my ear feels like it physically aches and is uncomfortable. I went to the doctors today to rule out any possible ear infection and as I suspected no infection, all completely healthy which is good news but also left me feeling really frustrated.
The only thing the doctor noticed was the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) on the left side of my jaw are inflamed but doesn't believe this to affect tinnitus, I just need to see my dentist about this.
Has anyone experienced any issues with their jaw/teeth/wisdom teeth and their tinnitus?
Just looking to put my mind at rest and I guess accept there is no reason for it and look at ways to manage it.
