Has anyone had tinnitus or TMJ after surgery? I'm at eleven months post surgery, back to work, but now have constant ringing in my ears and jaw pain, possibly TMJ. Naproxen and a night bite has managed the pain but ringing is ALWAYS THERE. It started a couple months ago. Jaw xrays, dentist, hearing test turned up no cause. Wondering if the realigned spine might be contributing, if others have had similar post surgery problems.

I had tinnitus way before my scoliosis surgery. It came from a very loud noise I was subject to. Some medications- like aspirin- can cause tinnitus-check with your pharmacist.
I had an episode of TMJ after a root canal.
