      Hey guys,

      I am sure there are a million threads here about this already.

      Two weeks ago I got my first cold since the onset of T, I was prepared for a spike during my cold but it was not very big or if there was one at all. However, I've been feeling good for a week now (no symptoms of cold) but now it feels like my T is louder. Either I was too sick during my cold to be bothered with the spike or something. It is louder now anyway, sometimes it can change ear and pitch.

      Can you get a spike after the cold sort of settled? How long does it usually take before the body has been completely rid of the infection? Some say weeks here, is that true for most people?

      A virus can take a extra bit of time leve your system and the ears can take a while longer to clear with mucous hanging around.
      It should settle down over a few days but if not have your ears checked....lots of love glynis

      Thank you @glynis-harbron, I hope it goes away soon. I think I might have to go to the doctors, the cold stopped a week ago but my spike started a few days ago :(
