      Can anyone tell me based on your experience does having a cold with symtoms of running nose and blocked nose affect your T or your hearing?

      How does that affect the existing T?

      My friend said his tinnitus gets worse when he's got a cold, for me, I wouldn't know. Guess it does, but could differ, person to person.

      Mine does. Ears are more inflamed so things seem louder.

      Absolutely yes. Especially if I have sinus and ear congestion. My T will magnify greatly. Getting a cold that causes congestion (or allergies) spikes my tinnitus so much that it's almost like starting all over for me. At least that's how it was last time.
