      Hi all,

      This cold seems to have made my T worse and caused my ears to be really blocked, is this normal?

      Also, I seem to be suffering with H which is new to me, is this normal during a cold and is it temporary? It's horrible as things like stapling files causes pain. :(

      @geg1992 I had a cold a few weeks ago and it caused me to feel more of a "pulsatile" tinnitus than my ringing tinnitus. When the cold went away, that went away totally. So I'm guessing that it is temporary for you, too.
