      Has anyone ever experienced any relationship between cough and tinnitus? I find it odd that no one mentions it on the internet, however, in my experience, tinnitus has a very strong relationship with cough. On "very clear throat" days, I hardly hear it. "Throat congestion" days it's more audible. Again, cough subsides, T reduces.

      I haven't seen anybody make this observation on the internet so wondering is it something specific to me?

      Ive suspected that my seasonal allergies that causes post nasal drainage, dryness and irritation in the throat to cause a sore throat and possibly irritate Eustachian tubes resulting in increased T.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Probably headphones
      Cough is probably not linked with T but nasal congestion yes. Cough and nasal congestion go often hand in hand.
