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!

Anyone explain? Thanks,

Sand

Sound Disappears Sometimes
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.

Thanks for you all to help me solve the puzzle.

Re: Noise in the ear while chewing
I have the exact as same issue; I have been using my jaw (eating alot) my body temperature is very warm, close hot and the weather outside is very cold. Are you in simplier conditions?

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.

I think maybe it is because of some problem with teeth.
Have you get checkup with a dentist?

4 year old with sqeaking sound while chewing
My 4 year old grandaughter has the same squeaking sound coming from her head. She doesn't complain about pain, in fact she acts as though she's not aware of it.

Does anyone know if this is a serious enough problem to see a doctor about?

Ear noise while chewing and ear lobe itches.
i have had that too now for about 2 weeks or more. SO far I have read that it could be ear wax , bone dislodgment, jaw problem, tooth issue and even ear bugs.
What should i do? im scared now.
