      The good news is your T has a good chance of going away when your infection subsides.

      Welcome to Tinnitus Talk BAF !
      Sinus infections can block your tubes and cause tinnitus.
      Sudefed and steam inhalation should help clear the mucous.
      Blood preasure and anxiety can cause or worsen tinnitus so I would get your doctor monitor your BP and advise you on how to lower it etc.

      Tinnitus comes with lots of unwanted emotions and they can be just as bad as coping with the sound itself.

      Anxiety,panic ,sleep loss,low mood and coping at work and family life can take its toll.
      Melatonin can help sleep or a low antidepresant for sleep or sleeping tablets short term .
      Sound therapy will help by playing natural sounds through out the night set low to help mask your tinnitus.

      Keep posting for support as we are here around the clock to help.....lots of love glynis

      Avoid loud noise, and chug probiotics to try to repair your guts from the antibiotics. I like keifer, personally.
