      I have had T for almost 10 months already!
      and it's been getting quieter thank god.

      I've been taking care of my self and to not get the flu but it was impossible!!
      now I have it.

      I haven't notice a spike... BUT
      my left ear (with t) burst for moments and feels kinda blocked.

      is this normal because of the flu?
      how long till it fades away?

      What do you mean 'bursts for a moment'? Is it the flu for sure, or a cold?

      I've spent most of the fall with seasonal allergys or colds (hard to tell the difference) clogging my head and at it's worst I spent a good week+ where it was like my hearing was completely under water before it cleared up.

      As far as how long it'll take you to recover... who knows.. a couple days... a couple weeks... whenever your body's ready. You just have to wait it out and try not to fret about it, as it will pass eventually.

      Mario,
      Take some mucous linctus to clear away any mucous in your tubes and should help shift your could/flu

      just want to report
      that my left (t) ear feels blocked still.
      but the silver lining is that my t got super quiet and changed ears lol
      is this even normal?

      That won't do anything for a flu virus but I've taken it plenty. No big deals.

      Hi Mario,
      Come down with a stinker of a cold also and runny eyes and nose.
      Lungs playing up and lips keep going blue.
      Taking hot Lemmon and chilling at home and decided not go out tonight to a reunion and told hubs go meet his mates as was not up to drinking with the girls.
      Amoxillin is used for a wide range of health issues and quite safe for a week 250mg -500mg and only IV meds tend to cause tinnitus to spike .
      I take it a few times a year with no problems.
      Take some mucous medication to clear your tubes and paracetamol and fluids and rest up with some nice treats and keep warm....lots of love glynis
