    Absolutely yes on this! Very annoying. Im not on meds but i have read that can induce it as well. I have all sort if sounds and do to tmj i can hear what i think is my bloodflow. Ignore this to the best of your ability. Keeo busy and drink lots of water see a denstist to rule out tmj or fix the tmj. eustatian tubes play a role in this and jaw muscles press in it when you have tmj. Low salt diets as well are best. Any sinus can okay in it too. I hate tinniutus. It is very common and many are fortunate it is transient as well. I think most everyone has experienced it of all ages.

      I already talked to the oral surgeon and he said it can't be fixed.... He said trying to figure out what is causing it like biting nails and stuff and stopping will help it not get worse

      Well,now you know it is not tmj. It's another symptom of anxiety. A lot of people check out physical anxiety symptoms to be sure it's not a real physical problem, and eventially believe the doctors and negative tests. Then they can settle down to deal with anxiety.

      The thing I use the most is breathing control. My niece is in the military. She told us she was taught a technique to relieve tension, even in combat situations. Breath in  to this count...one, one thousand...two, one thousand...three, one thousand...four one thousand. Then release breath through mouth to same count. With each breath, allow muscles to relax more.  Do this three of four times whenever needed. It works for me every time...some says doing it a whooooole lot.
