      Hello y'all. I'm Mayo, a fourteen year old. I had a pretty bad cold for about a week or two. One night, I got a tissue and had a long sneeze. Suddenly, my head was very dizzy and my ears were ringing. I thought nothing of this. The dizziness went away, but my ringing didn't. I assumed it would go overnight.

      However, when I woke up, the ringing was still there. I got really scared and researched this ringing. The best explanation was tinnitus. I got a YouTube clip to mask tinnitus, and it worked wonders. In school, the surrounding noise was fairly loud, so I never heard tinnitus (not that I wanted to hear it. ) In test conditions, and after about 7 pm, tinnitus was very obvious.

      Two weeks forward,I still have tinnitus. I can usually cope tinnitus, but studying is a pain in the arse. I need good grades to get to a good college, and tinnitus is making life difficult. I have yet to go to an ent yet. Thankfully, I like my life too much, and suicide thoughts are the last thing that occurs to me. However, reading is not pleasurable anymore.

      I only want to know one thing. What is the possible cause for my tinnitus? Can a bad cold really inflict tinnitus for someone young? And no, I'm in the school band, but I almost never use headphones/earphones, so high sound is fairly unlikely to be the cause of my tinnitus.

      Thanks for reading
