I Have Symptoms Of A High-pitched Sound When I Move

default
Posted on Thu, 23 Jun 2022
Question: I have symptoms of a high-pitched sound when I move my jaw up and down while eating, yawning and even when I turn my head sideways to the affected side as well as grinding the teeth. I also have fullness/pressure in the ear when the jaw is motionless. I went to see the doctor a couple of months ago who thought it was due to the jaw joint although there is no pain or soreness and recommended that I see a stomatologist but she didn't think it was because the Eustachian tube is blocked. Does this make sense? The stomatologist has since fitted with me with a mouthguard.

I also had an x-ray performed on the jaw a few months ago and it said that the left mandibular condyle is positioned very slightly in front of the most pronounced point of the temporal condyle.

Brief Answer:
Possibility of inner ear pathology is more likely.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Ask a doctor forum.
I can understand your concern.
I have gone through the history you have given.
In my opinion, these symptoms can be due to inner ear pathology.
So if possible, meet ENT doctor in person and get done clinical examination and MRI of inner ear for the diagnosis.
Hope I have solved your query.

The stomatologist though it was due to the minusc in the left ear but is there anything I can do to resolve it as I have had these symptoms for more than 2 years?
Many thanks

I have a small click on the left-hand side and there is a small squeak when I turn my head to the left each time but I wasn't talking about Meiners disease.

I also notice there is a small squeak when I open my mouth out wide.
