I've had tinnitus for a long time, as far back as I remember, but it never bothered me.
I recently went on holiday and when I got back I felt almost car sick for a couple of days after (there was lots of turbulence). I then felt a little better and then 5 days later I started with severe tinnitus in both ears. I also have ear pain and pains moving around my head and round my eyes and over the nose.
Before going away I was quite sick with a head cold and ear infection which cleared up about 2 weeks before the holiday. I have been to the doc and she says that the trauma from the flight has caused the pain and tinnitus and she can see the attic of my ear looked a bit pulled. She also saw a bit of strep throat starting. I now have antibiotics and Keral to take for 7 days.
I guess Im asking has anyone else had this happen? How long for the pain to go away? It's day 4 and the ringing is extreme and the pain in my ears is horrible. Sleeping and relaxing is impossible with the noise. This will calm down won't it? Is it possible I had decompression symptoms after travelling? I'm very scared.
