Are you regularly experiencing a ringing or roaring sound in your ears that has no known cause (a condition that’s also known as tinnitus)? Is there inflammation, swelling, or congestion occurring? Are earaches a constant part of your day?
TMJ disorder could be the cause. When a patient’s bite out of its proper alignment, the related muscles and nerves are negatively affected, leading to tension and irritation that spreads to the smaller muscles of the ears and results in ear pain.
Many people associate regular neck pain with posture issues or spending too long in one position (such as talking on the phone or working at a computer). However, the presence of TMD can result in the muscles in this area being overworked. Your muscles are constantly functioning together to accomplish movement, and when one muscle is strained, other nearby muscles (like the ones in your neck) can be “recruited” to take on some of the burden, inadvertently causing an imbalance that results in discomfort.
