Your eustacion tube is directly behind this joint and extreme pressure from the joint can cause abnormal hearing, usually it is more of a "stuffy" feeling in your ear canal. I would not consider this permanent, unless you never addressed the tmjd. ...Read more

Why do I have tinnitus without hearing loss? I have a displaced right TMJ and a popping jaw, hips, and knees. It's louder when muscles tense.

Tinnitus: Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, is usually due to hearing loss. However, two other causes of tinnitus include acoustic trauma or sudden loud noise and disorders of the jaw, like temporomandibular joint dysfunction. The reason for the noise is that the muscles of the jaw are so close to the ear. It's a very common tmd symptom when there has been no noise exposure or hearing loss. ...Read more
