      Do you guys think Tonsillitis can make my T worse? Because i heard Colds can and everytime i have Tonsillitis I'd start getting the Colds to, So now I'm a little bit worried, I know when I'm gonna get Tonsillitis for its something i have very often, My neck would start to feel stiff, My throat starts to hurt, headache and i feel very tired. And Since the throat is connected to the ears i thought maybe it might make my T worse. This will be my first Tonsillitis since the T onset. I haven't taken any medications for T, I'm scared that it also might make it worse. If this Tonsillitis goes on can i take Antibiotics for it? Has anyone ever took antibiotic and noticed difference in their T? How about paracetamol? Thank you :)

      Hi Anne,
      check this list of ototoxic drugs so - just in case - you can choose with your doctor the antibiotic to take if you need it.
      I took an antibiotic not included in the list for five days and it didn't affect my T.
      Take care!

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I wouldn't be worried about it making the tinnitus worse. If you notice a temporary spike, try not to worry and let time take care of it.

      I see Carlo gave you proper advice above.

      I have taken both ibuprofen and paracetamol, and no difference in tinnitus.
      Paracetamol is apparently the safer choice.
