What can an orthodontist do?
When I clench my teeth then it gets real loud.

I think it has something to do with pressure on my jaw joint.

If you bring your lower jaw farther back than your upper jaw and clench on it, you can induce tinnitus. Not sure if everybody can do that, like popping your ears without holding your nose and blow.

i know this is a pretty big bump, but i'd just like to "thank" 003 for teaching me i have tinnitus. clenching my teeth gives me a different ring...

now to clean my ears with q-tips, because i think that i have better hearing in my right ear than my left ear...

i blame the drum section in band

I had a loud humming in my ears for about 2 weeks a few months ago. The best way I can describe it is that is sounded like I was yawning all the time. It was so bad that I felt like a trip to the hospital was a good idea. The doctor told me that it may have been caused by general congestion in my sinuses. She gave me a prescrition for some allergy medicine to dry me out, but before I went to get the stuff the noise went away.


It was pretty scarry thinking that I would have this extremely loud humming in my head for the rest of my life.

After I take showers, I've been cleaning/drying my ears with q-tips. It has helped a bit. When I listen to my phones, I can really notice it, because everything else is blocked out but the music and the tinnitus.

Don't use q-tips. They can impact the wax and worsen the problem. Go to your local pharmacy and get an ear cleaning kit of the type manufactured by Debrox or Murine. These usually include a solution that loosens or dissolves the wax, and a syringe that you can use to irrigate the ear canal.

For anyone complaining of tinnitus, SEE YOUR DOCTOR. There are a number of things other than noise exposure that can cause or aggravate tinnitus, including ear infection and use of caffeine.
