In the last week, I can hear some noise in my right ear following each chewing. I tried to clear ear wax, there is not very much.
The sound likes when you twist a small paper ball beside the ear, but it has a lower pitch. No hearing difficulties at all, no pain, nothing wrong until chewing!
I have never jaw problem.
The sound is squeaky. I noticed today that jumping up and down also evoke the sound but it is milder. The funniest is that the head position also makes big difference: if I tilt my head on right side at 90 degree (my right ear has the sound) or low down my head > 90 degree front, the jaw movement no longer make the noise!! But it remains the same if I tilt my head on the left or back at 90 degree.
I will see if I can find something more strange.
I do not believe there is any serious problem, but it must have an explanation.
I have the same thing, except it only happens for 1 meal every couple of days or so. it doesn't HURT so much as it kind of makes me wince. It's really annoying, sort of like rubber rubbing together? I can't really explain it.
Just read somewhere that it is linked to allergies. I have the same thing. Someone else said to see an ENT (Ear Nose and Throat) specialist and get a cure. Something about the fluid in our ears moving around when we chew. Ew.
