Before posting Costen's Syndrome as a new subject I searched entire site and could not find any posts regarding it. 

Ps: I posted the following on my Facebook page this morning: 

What TMJD is and is NOT. You can think of it as a "constellation" of symptoms-- a virtual mulligatawny, and a "galaxy" of cures some of which may or may not work some of the time. Indeed your TMJD may very well go away by itself in a few weeks only to reappear one day upon making too wide of a yawn. Wikipedia presents the subject in an orderly and comprehensive way which for lay and dental professionals alike tends to stagger you and make your mind reel. Trying to get your head around this subject will be a challenge. But when you have, (wrapped your head around it) if you have TMJD you will/ should feel like you have tippy-toed across a bed of quicksand. May St. Apollonia, the Patron Saint of Dentistry, bless the hands of the next professional be (s)he that: dentist, physician, osteopath, chiropractor or evangelical faith healer, who you go to for your TMJD "treatment".  The Wiki-article:

As for Costen's syndrome this wiki-article notes  that Costen's syndrome was the early eponymous name given to what we now call, among a host of still other names for TMJ (D for dysfunction or disorder). 

Tonight I discovered an article related to "TTTP" whose author proclaims:

"Therefore, if you have Tonic Tensor Tympani Syndrome, you need to seek effective treatment for your tinnitus, hyperacusis and misophonia. When you do that, there is a good chance that your TTTS will go away on its own."
