suffered from ringing in ears

“When I first came here the ringing in my ears made me think I would go crazy. I couldn’t even sleep. I can’t believe it’s gone. Everyone treated me like family and I always had a good time when I came here for treatment. “ - Norma T.

headaches and noises in ears

“Between “1" and “10", my headaches were a “10" before I came here. The noises in my ears made it impossible to concentrate. Having been a U.S. Marine Corps Sargent in Vietnam, I thought I could handle anything, but the pain and noise made me think I was going crazy. Not only are the headaches and noise gone because of the treatment I received here, but I have a whole lot of new friends who made it happen.” - Robert G.

Tinnitus is a condition characterized by noises in the ears or head. The sounds may include ringing, buzzing, hissing, rushing water, roaring, the sound of a jet airplane, etc.

Studies have shown that close to half of the people suffering with tinnitus have a dysfunction of the muscles and joints of the head and face, commonly referred to as "TMJ." The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is the joint in front of the ear which allows us to speak, chew, swallow, kiss, smile and exhibit normal facial expressions. Almost half of the patients who have TMJ dysfunctions have tinnitus as one of their symptoms and in these patients, success rates in eliminating these ear sounds approach 90%.

In certain cases, tinnitus may be a result of spasm of a tiny muscle (called the stapedius) in the middle ear. This spasm may cause a slight vibration which is heard within the ear as a ringing, buzzing or hissing sound. In addition, dysfunction of other muscles, such as the tensor veli palati, may prevent the Eustachian tube (an air passage connecting the middle ear to the throat) from functioning normally, causing fullness and pressure behind the ear drum.

Conditions commonly referred to as "TMJ," "TMD," "TM Joint Dysfunction Syndrome," etc., are complex dysfunctions of muscles, ligaments and joints involving the head, face and neck. These conditions are typically caused by injuries such as falls, automobile accidents, trauma at birth, etc. It is very common for onset of symptoms to be delayed for months or years, thereby leading the individual to believe that the symptoms merely started on their own.

For many patients, tinnitus is accompanied by other symptoms such as:

  • Headaches
  • Face pain
  • Eye pain
  • Earaches
  • Dizziness
  • Pressure in the ears
  • Clicking noises or pain when opening or closing the mouth
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Burning tongue
  • Frequent sore throats

We have found that patients who have tinnitus as one of their symptoms, experience an elimination of their ear sounds following treatment in the vast majority of cases. However, patients who have tinnitus without any other symptoms, are relatively unlikely to experience improvement with treatment of the type discussed below. Since approximately half of the people who experience tinnitus also have other symptoms, a major proportion of tinnitus sufferers can eliminate the source of their frustration.

Many assume that stress is the cause of these conditions. However, stress makes virtually any dysfunction worse. If a person has a heart problem, under stress, they are more likely to have a heart attack. Similarly, a person with a stomach ulcer, dysfunction of the muscles of the head or even a broken leg, are likely to feel worse stomach pain, headaches or leg pain respectively, as a result of stress. Certainly, this does not mean that stress was the cause of these conditions.

Treatment commonly employs procedures which help stimulate muscles and joints to heal and function normally, decrease spasm, remove toxic waste products, and increase blood flow and nutrition to the affected areas. In rare cases, surgery to the affected tissues (not involving the ears) may be employed.

Over the last few decades, we have come a long way in diagnosing and treating temporomandibular joint dysfunctions, and accompanying symptoms such as tinnitus.

However, there's one additional point to keep in mind. Time is of the essence. Our success rate in treating tinnitus and the vast majority of other conditions is over 90%, but unlike the other problems I mentioned, such as headaches or facial pain, the success rate for tinnitus drops as time passes.

Jaw pain, migraines and ringing in ears

"Even if I lived in California I'd come here for treatment for jaw pain, migraines, and vomiting. The doctors and staff are really excellent. - Jennifer R.

P.S. - I actually forgot that before I came here I used to have ringing in my ears.

severe headaches and ringing in ears

“I can't believe that after having such severe headaches and ringing in my ears for so long, all the symptoms disappeared completely. The pain was so terrible, that I found it difficult to read and it interfered with my school work. I truly thank everyone at the Center who contributed to my success!” - Shakenya M.

buzzing noise, pressure in ears and hoarseness

“What a job Dr. Klemons did building the Center and staff. As soon as I arrived here I knew I was in good hands. Now that the buzzing noise, pressure in my ears, and hoarseness are gone, I’m back to work as a police officer and don’t have to think about these problems anymore.” - Edwin M.

“The hissing was driving me crazy and the pressure in my ears was just terrible. It feels like my joints have been greased. They’re smooth and quiet. Everyone treated me wonderfully-always explaining everything so clearly. I couldn’t be happier.” - Myrna B.

“For 18 years I had four different noises plus stabbing sensations in my ears. Everything got louder especially the heart beat sound I was constantly hearing. Since I came here, it’s like someone just turned down the volume. After all these years, it’s amazing. And never mind the dizziness. As a result I had to curtail driving, but I have no problem anymore.” - Cynthia B.

terrible headaches and ringing in ears

“I would like to thank everyone at The Center for Headaches and Facial Pain for their extreme kindness and assistance to all my needs and questions. They made what was a bad time in my life very much more bearable. Before treatment I had terrible headaches and ringing in my ears. I couldn’t even smile. I can’t believe how great I feel.” - Douglas R.

Suffered from jaw pain for 9 years

“I dealt with jaw pain for nine years and when the ringing in my ears started, I felt like I was going insane. In addition, day in and day out, every single moment, I was thinking about my face. It affected every part of my life. I went to so many medical and dental specialists who all told me that nothing could be done to help me–until I found Dr. Klemons on the internet. I came here from Maryland six hours round trip and was really skeptical--but now that it’s gone–no amount of money or time would have ever stopped me from coming here.” - Angela E. (Maryland)

pain in head and face and noises in ears

“I used to have such bad pain in my head and face and such terrible noises in my ears that I thought I was going out of my mind. Dr. Klemons and everyone here at the Center for Headaches and Facial Pain have been so nice. I really appreciate all they’ve done for me and recommend them to anyone in need” - Naomi M.

ear pressure and ringing in ears

“Day and night I had the most awful ear pressure and ringing which were driving me crazy. I woke up the day after Dr. Klemons performed a painless procedure and all the pressure and noise were gone. I’d recommend this office to anyone.“ - Joseph R.

Note: Other procedures were necessary prior to the trigeminal pharyngoplasty to which this patient referred.

noises in ears for 20 years

“After twenty years of noises in my ears, it feels great to hear normally - the noise is completely gone. I used to speak to people and the noise would make me forget what I was talking about. Everyone here is great. They treated me like I was one of their own.” - Donna M.

jaw clicking and ringing in the ears

“I couldn't stand the thought of having to live with my jaw clicking and the ringing in my ears for the rest of my life. It's such a relief to have it all gone.” - Angela I.

"The many tinnitus sufferers of the world know the hopeless, helpless feeling which accompanies the condition. Finding a cure is rare, and finding help is difficult. After two years of visits to various doctors, it was a pleasure to find one with the combination of empathy and ability. I sincerely thank you for the great improvement in my tinnitus, since I can now function much better during the day and sleep, finally, during the night. Please continue to be involved in your interest in this area, and may you help many others. My best to you and your excellent staff." - Charlotte S.

loss of balance and noises in the ears

“The worst symptoms were loss of balance and noises in my ears which were completely debilitating. I was worried to death that they would never go away. At least ten doctors here and in Europe misdiagnosed me. Seven Ear, Nose and Throat specialists thought I had a viral infection in my ears. It’s so wonderful to feel so good and ready to be discharged after Dr. Klemons treated me for a short time. Without a doubt, this is the best doctor’s office I’ve ever been to.” - Iain S. (New York)

headaches, earaches and ringing in ears

“When I came here I was miserable because of headaches, earaches, and ringing in the ears. But the level of service and level of professionalism here turned me around. I really looked forward to coming for treatment. I’m leaving without pain or ringing and without the anxiety I had, knowing so many new things about how to prevent it from coming back. All the other doctors I’ve seen told me that Dr. Klemons is really great.” - Vernette R.

excruciating face, eye and head pain and ringing in ears

"I was absolutely terrified by the excruciating face, eye, and head pain, and ringing in my ears that was so loud that I couldn't hear anything else but the noise. I thought it was never going to end and I really thought I was going to die. I'm starting my life all over because it's all gone now " - Carol G.

“Before I was treated here I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t talk or even sleep. I had such terrible pain in my throat, ringing in my ears, and burning tongue. They’re all gone and I’m sleeping for the first time in years. What’s more, Dr. Klemons probably saved my life by finding a problem he doesn’t treat. Everyone here is wonderful and outgoing. I’m so impressed with how organized you are.” - Michele N.

noise, pain, and pressure in ears

“Everyone was so great to me here. I was really not optimistic before we started treatment and never thought I’d find a solution to the noise, pain, and pressure in my ears, which I had for 12 years before coming here. To sum it up, it’s been a great experience.” - Stephen L.

headaches and ringing in ears

"When I first came here, I could hardly do anything except lay around the house. I had excruciating headaches and vomited every single day. The ringing in my ears was driving me crazy. I'm so happy it's all gone. Everyone here made me feel comfortable - just like I was at home. - Anna E-T.

pressure in ears, dizziness and ringing in ears

“I used to sit on the floor and push my head against the wall as hard as I could while screaming from the pain. I couldn’t even talk to the doctors I went to and now I barely remember how terrible it was like to be in pain. I’m so happy I came here from North Carolina.

Dr. Klemons is the first doctor who ever let me tell him what the entire problem was. The fourteen specialists I went to at the medical schools and private practices gave me almost fifty different medications which never helped and often made me feel really sick or gain weight. I flushed them all down the toilet.

Before I was treated here, I had twenty-five different symptoms. These are just a few of them:

Headaches all over my head
A burning sensation in my tongue and all over my face
Pressure in my ears and eyes that made me feel like they would burst
Difficulty swallowing
Horrible constant ringing in my ears
A crushing feeling in my face under my eyes

It’s just amazing to be without the agonizing pain I had for so long. It’s all gone since the RF procedure. I went shopping the next day. Everyone here is so nice and the therapy is so relaxing.” - Jennifer S. (North Carolina)

“For almost 40 years I suffered from dizziness, hearing loss, and terrible noises in my ears. I couldn’t sit up, work, or even drive. None of those are a part of my life anymore since I came here for treatment.” - Barbara R.

“When I first came here I was really worried about my agonizing face pain, difficulty swallowing, and ringing in my ears because another doctor told me I’d have to”learn to live with it.” Today, now that I’m all better, I met a new patient in the reception room. He said to me, “I’m afraid that Dr. Klemons is going to be just like all the other doctors who couldn’t help me.” I told him, “No, he’s not, you’re going to be amazed.” My husband reminds me all the time that we only wish that I came here sooner.” - Barbara R.

“When I first came to you, I had a lot of stuff going on - jaw pain that went into my ear and neck, ringing in my ears, and a metal taste in my mouth. Now that I don’t have any of it anymore, I can eat and I can smile. The people here are terrific.” - Anthony G.

“My ear, nose, and throat specialist sent me here for earaches, pressure and ringing in my ear, and dizziness. I don’t have any of it anymore. I was surprised that I got better really fast. You do good work. Everybody here is nice.” - Kettly F.

“Thank you - Thank you so much. When I came here I had so much pain in my head, my face, eyes and ears. I also had ringing and pressure in my ears and I threw up from the migraines a lot of the time. Everybody here was so pleasant and cared about getting me better and they did. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who has the symptoms I used to have.” Cassandra K.

headaches, face pain, and ringing in ears

“Dr. Klemons gave my daughter back to me after years and years of headaches, face pain, and ringing in her ears. I’m one of those people who takes a wait and see approach. You have to really earn my trust. But I watched the results every time she came here. My daughter laughs again! The change is just amazing to me. Every single person in this office has been wonderful. We would have gone anywhere to get her better and now it’s all gone.” - Beverly B. (Mother)

noises, clogged feeling and pain in ears

“The noises, clogged feeling and pain I had in my ears, problems swallowing, and a feeling that something was stuck in my throat were so bad that I was miserable all the time, and I took it out on my family. A lot of the time I had to lay still in bed for days at a time. The headaches were so horrible that I wanted to cut my head off. None of the doctors I went to helped me until I went to The Center for Headaches and Facial Pain. The doctors and staff were just wonderful. Everyone always treated me like family. I’m so glad that I’m well, but I have tears of sadness because I won’t be coming here anymore. I’m a new person!” - Anna B.

noises in ears were frustrating

“I major in composing at college and play a number of instruments. Before I came here I heard noises in my ears which stopped me from composing and playing. It was so frustrating! It’s great to be back to normal.” - Niclaus D.

“In a “normal” day I had three different very loud noises (ringing, hissing, and buzzing) and a clogged sensation in my head and also in my ears all the time. My headaches were terrible, but the noise and pressure were so bad that I couldn’t think straight. It’s all gone so I’m able to sleep again and do the things I used to be able to do. I’m very impressed with this facility and the people who helped me here.” - Nicholas K.

“I’m so happy with the treatment which eliminated my dizziness and ringing in my ears that I’m referring my family here.” - James R.

pain in temple and ringing in ear

“Pain in my temple and ringing in my ear kept me from working. I’m amazed at how fast it went away. Everyone here treated me exceptionally well. I already told three people to come here.” - Ida M.

“I was always aggravated because of really bad ringing, pain, and a clogged sensation in my ears, and dizziness until my ear, nose, and throat specialist sent me here. Everyone here is excellent. I give Dr. Klemons’ cards out to people who have pain. I feel like a new person. I really do. It’s all gone. Thanks God and thanks Dr. Klemons.” - Maria C.

“After seeing at least six doctors for my tinnitus, headaches, and face pain, no one gave me as thorough an exam as Dr. Klemons - not even close. I love this place. I’m really glad to be treating here even though I have to drive almost 10 hours. ” - Jessica K. (New York)

“It was really a different experience for me to come here for ringing and pressure in my ears as compared to any other doctor’s office. It’s such a relief. You were able to diagnose and treat my problems after so many other specialists failed.

You folks do excellent work. The comments I read on this site are really true. Everyone here really cares.” - Steven S.

“I first started having a long list of symptoms 23 years ago. I'm amazed that after treating here with Dr. Klemons and his associates I've had the best time of my life. I used to have incapacitating headaches, eye pain, dizziness, ringing, pressure and pain in my ears, nausea, pain in my face and jaw, chest pain, hoarseness, problems swallowing and numbness. I was often bed bound. I just didn't enjoy life. I would go out to eat to at a restaurant and then have to be taken home. I start crying just thinking about how bad it was. I wasn't living a normal life and I was in such a fog wondering whether I'd ever get rid of all these problems. Since I came here they're all gone.

The doctors and staff here are so caring and kind. Coming here has been the best experience I ever had. I just feel so comfortable here. I'm really impressed and feel like I can put my life in their hands. Everything is always explained and I never leave with any questions." - Carol C.

“When I came here my migraines made me want to rip my head off. I was going out of my mind. Even the chest pain, ringing in my ears, and dizziness are gone. At first , I didn’t think I’d get better but my mom (who was a patient here years ago) and everyone I meet at other offices tell me Dr. Klemons is the best. I’m going to miss coming here.” - Michelle K.

“Ringing in my ears made it almost impossible to drive. I’d have to stop and wait on the side of the road. I had 6-8 spells everyday. It was like a seizure. I thought I’d lose my driver’s license. It’s great that Dr. Klemons and his staff made it all go away. He really has everything here fine tuned like a motor. I never had to wait. Everyone is always happy and makes the visits great.” - Jeffrey M.

“Ringing in my ears, earaches, and vomiting from the pain were driving me crazy before I started treatment. I trusted they would be gone when I came here and I’m really happy I made the long trips. The doctors and staff are excellent.” - Tara P.

headaches, jaw pain, earache and ringing in ears

“I‘m feeling great and I’m really grateful that Dr. Klemons took away the headaches, earaches, jaw pain and ringing in my ears. My family and I don’t know what would have happened if I wasn’t referred to him.” - Mary Jo M.

“I came here with great hesitation but not anymore! Dr. Klemons’ examination was phenomenal as are the other doctors here. Dizziness and ringing in my ears made it difficult to get through the day. They got me better without pharmacological treatment.

Everyone here is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating and thought of all the little things that made it a positive experience to come here.” - Ross B.

“Terrible earaches and noise in ears bothered me sleeping and much trouble working. They gone. Everybody very good here.” - Yiubun S.

“When I started here I was in real pain in my jaw bone and my ears were ringing really bad so I couldn’t sleep at night. My doctor sent me to Dr. Klemons, and I don’t have the problem anymore. Very nice people here. You people made such a great difference in my life.” - Jeneba J.

“The doctor who sent me here said that Dr. Klemons will treat you like family. He’s a wonderful doctor. My doctor was right. Everyone here is terrific. I only wish I came here sooner. All of my headaches, eye pain, dizziness, pain in my face, ear, and my throat, and ringing in my ears are gone” - Magdalena G.

“I thought there was something really wrong with me because the ringing in my ears and eye pain were driving me crazy until I came here. I feel great now that it’s gone and I’m starting to feel like myself.

It’s hard to believe that before I came here, specialists in pain management, internal medicine, ear, nose and throat, allergy, neurology, psychiatry, infectious disease, chiropractic, and orthopedic surgery could not find what was wrong with me. The people here are beautiful. Everyone treated me great.” - Elisa B.

“Ringing in my ears was driving me crazy. It kept me from concentrating which is critical to my job as a software engineer. I was hopeful, but skeptical before I came here from New Hampshire.

The doctors and staff here are very friendly, accommodating, and gave me back my life.” -George R. (New Hampshire)

“Before I came here from Alabama, dizziness was driving me crazy. I couldn’t stand still without hanging onto something and the ringing in my ears was really bothering me too, and now it’s gone. I love everyone here. They all make me feel right at home.” - Shannon W. (Alabama)

“For two years, I didn't care about anything but getting better. I came here from Oklahoma for ringing and pressure in my ears, but now I'm back to myself.” - Gregory F. (Oklahoma)

“I could write a book about how great I felt for six and a half years after I was treated here. All the excruciating headaches, eye pain, earaches, pain in my face and jaw, chest pain, and terrible dizziness, ringing in my ears, nausea, and difficulty swallowing were completely gone. It scares me to know that people can be in pain their whole lives not knowing that Dr. Klemons can get them better. Unfortunately, I flipped head over heels and fell down stairs and that’s the only reason I had to return. I’m really happy to know I can come back here to get rid of the problem again.” - Carmella W.

“Earaches, nausea, dizziness, ringing in my ear, and headaches were so bad I thought I would faint. That’s why I cried when I came here the first time. I’ll never forget that day. My ear, nose, and throat specialist told me “I’m going to help you. I’m going to send you to a good doctor”. Thanks God he sent me here. My balance used to be so bad when I was walking that I kept feeling like I would fall. Now all of the problems have disappeared. I’m so happy! Everyone here was so nice to me - from the first day to the last day” - Maria B.

“I wrote that everything is “perfect” after I treated here ten years ago, and I stayed free of tinnitus, sore throats, eye pain, and chest pain until I fell. That’s why I came back here. I’m very appreciative. You have a great staff. Everyone here is wonderful.” - Celia B.

“For 25 years pain ruined my life. I couldn’t go to work or have kids (because of all the medications). I had to go to the hospital at least once or twice a week. Especially after seeing about forty doctors who couldn’t help me, I really thought the pain would never go away and I would have to live with it for the rest of my life. Before I came here my husband and I could never make plans to do anything, but we make plans and do lots of things all the time now that I’m feeling so wonderful.

Everybody here is terrific and genuinely concerned. I tell everyone on Myspace and the blogs with migraines, eye pain, dizziness, ringing in the ears, earaches and pressure, nausea, jaw and chest pain, hoarseness, and sore throats that they should come here. It’s a miracle.” - Melissa G.

“When I came here jaw pain, pain in my temples and ringing in my ears kept me from eating (I needed a blender to grind up my food) and I couldn’t sing (which is one of my favorite things to do). None of that’s a problem anymore.

Everyone here was great - and I love the fact that I can sing at jazz clubs again.” - Arlene H.

“Forty-one years ago, I started getting terrible sinus headaches, jaw pain, and earaches and ringing in my ears which kept getting worse. Narcotic pain killers didn’t even work and I could hardly ever sleep because of the pain. I never thought it would go away, but it did. It’s excellent here.”- Rona O.

“It was so annoying to have ringing and pressure in my ears. I’m amazed that the treatment worked because I never thought it would go away. Everyone here was great.” - Irma L.
