      Well a little update from me - with a positive end to help others along the road of T !

      So all going good - got my first cold since T came knocking - yes it increased my T as my ears nose and head are all stuffy with gunk - nothing I can't handle - then out of the blue my left ear where I have the high pitched tone feels numb !

      Its like after you've been to the dentist and the numbness starts to wear off - if I scratch near my ear its really loud - my T is louder and different no high tone that I have learnt to ignore most of the time - its now a muffled fuzzy thing and feels odd my ear feels really strange and near my ear.

      I was a little worried but decided to remind myself I have had a cold this is the cold disappearing from my ears/nose/throat - I headed off to bed - hoping the morning it will have changed - dont panic - I told myself.
      6 months ago - I would have been frantic!

      Today I am happy to report - I had a bit of a restless night nothing too bad and awoke to find this odd sensation and muffed noise gone my usual T is back - I was so glad - happy to have my old T back !

      So guys - there you go a blip for 24 hours after a cold but back to normal - happy Cher xx

      @Cher69 - this tinnitus thing is so strange. I am experiencing my first cold/flu. Had the ringing/chirping sound for about 3 months now. The hard thing is that we are all so different and while our parts are still the seems that the onset and result (sound) is often so different.
