      Hi all,

      My tinnitus has been very nice recently until yesterday.

      An ambulance came past with sirens blaring, about 30 feet away. Since then, my ears have been really loud and I've had H which is not something I'm used to.

      IS this likely a spike? I'm worried as I have to fly soon too, any experiences? I've bought ear planes and we are in front of the wing.

      I'm just worried it will be permanently worse, but I have a nasty cold at the moment too which blocks my ears a bit.

      I just feel awful at the moment, any advice?

      thanks.

      Most likely its the nasty cold that blocks your ears.
      Make sure to take anticongestant before the flight.

      What are examples of good anti congestants please?

      Sudafed is a decongestant. Afrin nasal spray is good too. I'm flying Saturday too. I bring gum, earplanes, earplugs, and noise cancelling headphones. If I had a cold I'd use a decongestant. Colds make T spike, and your ears were sensitive when the ambulance went by. I highly recommend the noise cancelling headphones.You will not hear the loud jet engines, and your ears would have a rest.
