      Just curious and a little worried about my own cold. The results will probably end up freaking me out even more but I can't NOT ask.

      I've had a cold and flu separately, neither of which had an effect on my tinnitus, which is noise induced.

      You should put "0 cero" as an option, I believe it will be the most voted.

      I have had increased T because of a cold, but just temporary.

      Take care!

      PD: You should watch out for infections, those have a higher risk of messing with your ears.
