First time posting here, i have had Tinnitus for just over 2yrs due to a cold, the first few months were hard but i manged and got used to it. I have been fine ever since until last friday when i woke up with a sore throat , no other symptoms just a sore throat. Then on saturday i woke up with a mild sore throat and a runny nose and a wierd noise that is louder than my baseline T. When i say wierd i means it doesn't sound or feel like tinnitus , i feel this wierd sensation with the noise and its like when blood rushes to your head. I feel like the noise is inside me like as if I'm hearing the fluid in my ear ( is that even possible). I dont know what this new sound is or what causing it , is it linked to the cold if i do have a cold. Apart from the new sound and mild sore throat i also have a runny nose but its not blocked, i am sneezing but not all the time and i have lost my appetite. I dont have a fever or a cough. Do my symptoms sound like a cold?
When i woke up to the sound yesterday i also had this heavy feeling in my left ear and muffeled hearing. I took a sudafed and did some steaming and the noise went away. Once i yawned my hearing came back.
Today i took anither sudafed and the noise went however im 2hrs into my recent dose and the noise is still there so im not sure if its linked to fluid in my ear or not.
I really am hoping if someone can tell me if my symptoms sound like a cold and what the new sound is?
