Can a TMJ syndrome affect hearing

by Lenny

I was diagnosed with TMJ about a year ago after a very painful ear ache and am wondering if this affects my hearing. I have been wearing hearing aids for about three years and I am struggling with less and less hearing.

Hello Lenny,
That's a good question, and to be honest I'm not sure; my inclination is to say a TMJ syndrome would not affect your hearing.

I think you should address this question to a neurologist.

Sorry not to be more helpful.
