Well, I knew this day would come... I now am dealing with my first cold since having tinnitus. Thank god I don't have to get on a plane anytime soon, so I don't have to worry about flying, ear and pressure issues. It's your classic winter cold: runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, achy. My ears, which have been doing pretty well lately, suddenly seem to be ringing off the hook. Any advice on dealing with the common cold when you have tinnitus? I am assuming my spike will go away when my cold does. Thanks.
