Why does tensing the jaw make your ears ring?

In: Biology
[ad_2]

When you tense your jaw muscles, you are putting strain on the spot where your jawbone meets your skull bone (temporomandibular joint). This joint is physically very close to the hearing mechanism. All sound is vibration, and in this case, your skull is vibrating a little bit from the static / isometric (muscles engaged but nothing moving) stress it’s being subjected to by your jaw muscles.
