I've been having this trouble for 1-1/2 years now and it's literally driving me insane!! Not only do I have constant headaches but I have ringing in the ears (high pitch sound), have trouble sleeping because of it and am now having pain in my jaws. I was first diagnosed with my thyroid being under-active but, now that it's under control, the pain/ringing is still there. Took meds for sinus, allergies, you name it -- had CT scan & hearing checked also. Took allergy shots for a while. Am at a loss as to what to do next. :( Any suggestions would be much appreciated!! :) I'm 58 years old and, until this happened, was pretty darn healthy!

  • All the symptoms you mentioned are the classic symptoms of TMJ Dysfunction. It might benefit you to due some research on this and I hope that this helps.

  • Hi, I am in the same boat, I had TMJ, headaches, tinnitis ( since I gave birth to my 7 yr old). Fortunately, there's hope for you. Chiropractor. If you find the right kind he ( or she) will be a great help to you. My condition is on going unless I stay with the chiropractor. It's been about 2 years for me since I visited my doc, so the symptoms are back and I guess it's my time to go back to him. Do some research on who's best in you area, find out who else has been helped. Good luck, I hope this helps.Taya:)
