      Tinnitus Since:
      Actually my tinnitus never goes away but the crickets sound has stopped bothering me. But whenever I get congested like now a very loud constant ringing starts in my right ear. Last time (January) the antibiotics and steroid shot made it go away after treatment. Since then the louder noise has returned sporadically. It's been constant for days now since I got sick. I guess it's back to ENT for me. Does anyone else get worse due to colds, allergies, etc that cause congestion?

      It is not unusual for T to seem worse when you have a cold or congestion. Your immune system is working harder, you're aggravated and because of the congestion and stuffiness, it can seem louder. It will improve once you get past the cold.
