Hey guys, my wisdom teeth are starting to come out (actually like 2-3 have already fully grown out) of the gum, and for a few months already, I've been feeling a lot of tension in the muscle above the jaw area. I'm not sure how I'd tell you the position-- put your finger under your ear lobes at the ridge, and there's the area.
Every time I feel the tension, I try to exercise the muscle a bit and open my jaw wide etc, try to stretch it, and often I can hear a really loud (because it's right next to my ear drums) tearing of something. This happens very often when i listen to music via earphones, so I'm trying to refrain from using my ipod.
I don't know if it's a wisdom tooth problem or a ear-drum problem. I'm a flautist and have always been at the receiving end of high-pitched piccolo notes during band pract, and it just so happens that the picc player sits on my right.
Any ideas? I haven't been able to check with doctors cos I've been busy with Os.
