I went to my dentist today and he said I might have TMJ. I have alot of problems and this has been bothering me for a year to the point where I have depression and anxiety. Some of you may know my story but to make this short .... Last year, my left ear makes a popping noise when I go to sleep or laying down, same thing. This has not stopped since. Then I started getting other symptoms .. ear pressure, both ears makes a clicking, popping sound when I move my jaw or swallow. I also need to wear ear plugs when having a shower or bath. NOW ... last month, I have tinnitus. It started in my right ear. Humming, low noise for a couple of weeks. Then it started in my left ear as well. Both ears. I hear humming, loud noise 24 hours and it is very upsetting. I already seen an ENT last year and he was so rude. I will see another one soon for a second opinion. Back to TMJ ... He wants to remove my 4 impacted widsom teeth and make a guard since apparently I grind my teeth. Could this help remove any of my symptoms? I'd like to hear any opinions, advice or experiences with TMJ or something related. Please help. Thank you
