Anxiety and tmj with tinnitus

Posted , 2 users are following.

so im well awate im anxious, not always the panic attack kind, ive learned to semi deal with that throught the years. My issue is is just anxiety that exists and so when i sleep i clench my teeth hard. I have no clue why my body feels this is comfortable but it does.i have tried hypnosis, meditations..etc I use a soft mouth splint but still at times if i nap or have a stressful day my mouth clenches. My issue is it creates pulsitile tinnitus and where i can hear sounds, which does become maddening when it flares up as of course i oanic it wont go away and the cycle begins there. They are annoying sounds that then trigger anxiety attacks. I know whats happening but it still happens.not something you can breathe away.  My anxiety has over the decades created physical issues clearly. Does anyone else get these tinnitus issues. I know it goes away with the mouth splint, but im all confused right now why its acting up and its triggering health anxiety and i need it to stop.i need it to stop. I cant use any meds i have optic nerve issues and it would make the tmj way worse. I think im looking to see if im alone in this more so than anything else. Therapy does nothing for it my bisy decieded it likes to clench?I have had it this bad before i think and it did subside with the mouth splint but the whole weak just hasnt been so good. I actually just had a dentist visit this morning and he said yes its a flare up.am i alone in this!does anyone else get this?

    Hi Lisa I clench and grind my teeth so much so that they are wearing away at certain bits. I got a gum shield from the dentist but it is not comfortable. I wake up through the night and my teeth are clenched and my tongue really squeezed to the top of my mouth. It's so frustrating as my jaw hurts and it gives me tension headaches. I also have tinnutus but the Dr basically said there is nothing can be done for that other than putting something noisier in my ears to drown out the ringing !! I'm going to therapy and hoping I will continue to improve and be able to relax a little bit more. Hope things improve for you and you feel better soon. Good luck.cheesygrin

      Does your chin ever get tingly. Its scaring me. I went to the dentist this morning he said he didnt know and clenching back teeth cause issues and somehow clunching the front teeth would probably cause other issues. I dont know i was also on the computer in a weird position for a few hours playing some stupid game my chin was leaning forward while i was laying down so i could have caused this. I want it to go away. It trigger crazy anxiety i dont know why when an ailment occurs i think its bever going away. Its so silly but i do it. I was fine otherwise. I cant use medications i have an optic issue so im like hanging out here on my own stuck with the pulse tinnitus and chin thing now. Not a good day

      no its not that kind of tinnitus. I use fans but it from clenching my teeth. I have to stop. I keep doing hypnosis and such i dont know it just really needs to act normal already. It just started acting up it has before and calmed down. Im my own worst enemy and not running to anymore doctors they are very costly.

    Hi have the same thing I have had a sore head for 2 weeks eventually whet away came back 1 week ago and is still there after eating a really chewy sweet on my right side now its sore on my right side of my head and my jaw, I went to the doctor she told me

    It sounds like damaged muscle in my head as I banged it a few weeks ago and said I have tmj but I have pressure on my right side of my head and the top of my head and my back of my neck and now my right shoulder is sore I'm scared it's something serious that's getting missed

      You have sounds in your ears? My jaw hurts but my chin was tingly. I habe to wait for the jaw to calm down Nd then im hoping it all calms down. Its so weird. I also lean in a weird oosition whilst using the tablet which might add to it severly. Lay on my back and force my head forward. Maybe. I have no real clue

    Hi lisalisa

    I get tinnitus and it bothers me at times when everything is quiet at night. I grind my teeth due to stress grinded them down to the root. I am having my teeth worked on. 

    With your stress can't you get some help working on the stress issues. What have you done to help yourself. 

    Its hard i understand that stress can lead into a lot of stuff like anxiety attacks and panic attacks, and it can leave you feeling the physical symptoms like stomach issues, tinnitus, and other physical symptoms. 

    When i am stressed out and feel anxiety ridden I have to step back and just take some time to myself. I listen to music, I walk my dog, I color and i read and write. I pray to God and I do relaxation.

    Before i leave the house for the day i make sure i have my music and my cd player and i make sure i have my coloring book and crayons with me and when i need to i just sit and color and listen to music 

    Try this it helps. Worring will not get you anywhere try not to worry you are going to be fine 

    Elizabeth
