The unusual problem with my tinnitus is that it started after my TMJ finally calmed down (almost two years ago). It started only in the left ear and was a cross between ringing and buzzing. My right ear decided to join the chorus a few weeks ago. I was checked by an ENT who supposedly specialized in acoustic problems but all he told me was that I had TMJ pretty badly and a significant hearing loss. DUH! You think. He was no help. Thankfully I am able to live with this very noisy distraction even tho I don't like it.

Have either of you guys managed to see a neurotologist? They apparently have treatments available for the tinnitus, as it is a problem that I have as well due to TMJ. Originally, it was just ear pressure and no bass in my left ear. They had no diagnosis, and I suffered from confusion/balance problems. I went through a faulty TMJ treatment from some arrogant man, and then problems got worse: ringing started in my left ear, went down for 2 weeks, became sensitive to sound and I lost hearing. Then, like Catswold mentioned, my right ear joined in for no apparent reason. It's been 3 months, but my Neurotologist and new Neuromuscular TMJ Dentist are positive that things may be alright. I'm only 18 years old, and I'm having problems coping/studying/maintaining a normal life as well. I feel for you both, and hope that you are doing well.
