Try this. put your fingers in your mouth and grab a hold of your lower jaw. Now pull you jaw down while using your mastoid jaw muscles to resist the movement...Do the same while pushing your lower jaw up. DO YOU NOTICE YOUR T GOING UP??

Try this. Clench your face muscles like your benching some heavy weight. Does your T volume go up??

Mine does. What does that mean??

thank you. this concludes our workout for today. Take a hot shower and go to bed.

but seriously, any comments by knowledgable members would be appreciated.

Nope, doesn't do anything to me. Maybe the second one, if I clench all the muscles in my head, face, neck.

No idea what it means. T does some strange things. Maybe someone else qualified could say if it is connected to a jaw problem.

It means that various maneuvers that increase intracranial pressure can cause a transient rise in tinnitus in some people - just like they can cause the transient emergence of tinnitus in some people who normally do not have tinnitus.

I do not view this phenomenon as any indication of some sort of jaw-tinnitus connection.

Hi Vik

Its strange you should post this as I have just taken part in a tinnitus study on exactly this same thing. I can alter my tinnitus by protruding out my jaw  - There was a medical trial in Newcastle  asking for volunteers who had Tinnitus and could alter the sound by body movements - so I took part in it.

The study wired up volunteers to EEG machine whilst they changed thier Tinnitus by body movements- then the different brainwaves recorded.

I have written up my experience on my blog - http://lets-beat-tinnitus.co.uk/blog/newcastle-tinnitus-study/

I also have free masking sounds and a free "tinnitus residual software" that I have made on my blog -- so have a good root around.
