      Can a simple cold really cause tinnitus?

      But how? And why? Does that mean that my tinnitus will go away with my cold?

      Hi Mayo,
      When you get a cold you produce lots if mucous in your chest,ears,nose and throat and infection.
      The extra mucous in your ears and virus cause problems with your auditory system and as well as external sound you hear inner sound called tinnitus.
      It can go away when you are better and your ears are the last to settle down .
      Steam inhalation can help you.
      For a lot of people the tinnitus can go away and not cause any problem but for some people it might stay.
      Try to stay calm as stress and anxiety can cause tinnitus also.

      Tinnitus comes with lots of unwanted feelings and if you find your not coping well then your doctor can help with medication .

      keep posting for support....lots of love glynis

      It's very common that a cold will cause temporary T but I don't know how many get it permanently just from a cold.

      I really do hope my t is temporary. I can probably stand this for another 2 months before i start going crazy.

      Btw, I've had this cold for like 3 weeks. Do you think once I get "rid" of this cold, my t will go away in like a month? Please, i'm scared. I haven't told my parents yet or went to the ENT. Should I go to an ENT? Because all I see are people saying ENT's don't help AT ALL :(

      Hi Mayo,
      Your tinnitus as every chance of going away so try not to get worked up and scared.
      Ears take the longest to settle after a cold so all you can do is wait and take a mucous linctus and let the cold run its course .
      Keep an eye out for secondary infection in your ears like ear ache .
      Doctors send people ENT but anyone with tinnitus has a good chance of it going under 6 months .
      I would tell your parents as will be a great support for you .
      keep posting for support any time and sending you a hug.... dont be scared....lots of love glynis

      Something very weird and good happened today. As I woke up, my right ear was completely free of tinnitus, but my left ear stil,had a slight buzz which was very tolerable. I thank all of you, especially Glynis for your answers. I think my tinnitus might go away! I really hope this is the last time I visit this website.

      When you get tired of hoping it goes away, try the "Back To Silence" method.

      Ah, the relief was short lived.
      The t is fairly quiet now (maybe it's loud) but it doesn't bother me that much anymore
      What does bother me is that I'm starting to lose Balance when I stand up, my heads buzzing and I get dizzy. Does anyone know why this is?

      Hi mayo,
      Tinnitus in your ears and head can cause dizziness and also might be coming down with a virus causing positional vertigo .
      If it keeps happening please see your doctor
      as might need see ENT to rule out other reasons....lots of love glynis

      Amazing trick, but for me, it only really works for a minute or two. But I figured why. When I use the method, I pay attention to my T to see if it's still there, and in a minute, it comes back (or gets louder). Really, I say that if I don't pay attention to my T, it won't bother me that much.
      After school starts, I'll probably won't even hear T until I sleep :)
      I also had this damn cold for a VERY long time. It's lately been switching my noses, so I think it might be continous attacks of a cold, not one long cold.
