Went to the dentist today to see if my tooth was the cause of my hearing loss. Took xrays and said the tooth with the crown looked fine. He flossed around it, no blood and no pain. He thought maybe it was TMJ related and referred me to a TMJ specialist. I've had TMJ issues for many years as I have a nasty habit of biting my cheek and probably grinding my teeth. I have a nasty click whenever I open my mouth.

My next step is to seek out a good chiropractor, maybe an upper cervical NUCCA person, to see if that is the cause. Never been to one before and with a desk job, probably a good idea to see one even if it my hearing problem is not spinal related.

Think I'll do a fruit smoothie diet for a while to rest my jaw and see if that helps. My jaw muscles were quite tender when he was pressing on them.

I don't feel like I've gained much today, but at least I know it's not tooth related and I have found someone who will eventually remove my mercury fillings. Gotta get this hearing issue resolved first.
