      Good for you.
      Here's a strange (maybe not so strange) connection.
      Sudafed is for congestion.
      The other day I was talking with my dad and he grabbed his ear lobe and started going in circles. I looked at him funny, he said the doctor told him to do it for his ringing ears, that he has congestion. ?????????

      Afrin and Sudafed has helped diminish my T too. If your T is caused by a sinus/ear infection it's very likely these meds would offer relief.

      I agree - Sudafed calms my T down. But I don't think you can take it long-term. Have you tried inhaling menthol crystals? If you are congested that helps clear the sinuses. I think that is a good sign that your T is not permanent and also the reason for it, which is half the battle. Ask your doctor about taking it all the time.

      Don't worry if it doesn't clear them right away. Congestion can take ages to clear and T even more so. But if it's already helping it's a good sign.

      Give it time. If it is linked with congestion then it can take months to go away - unfortunately. Good news is you felt it go for a little while - that is a good indicator it is not permanent. Try inhaling the menthol crystals. I have done this for two days and my ears go mad: I can feel them moving like crazy. It really clears the sinuses. Try not to worry - I think yours will sort itself out, but be aware it could take some months.

      My advice would be to go back to the doctor and see if they can give you anything else that will help you decongest. Unfortunately I am in the same boat as you and they basically gave me a nasal spray and said I would have to be patient, so unfortunately I don't think there's much they can do
