Got the flu and now I have tinnitus

So I got a really bad flu and it's been the third time in 2 months. My son is in daycare and he gets sick like every other week so then I get it. Long story short is I got it pretty bad last week and I think I got an ear infection but I didn't goto the doctor. Whenever I swallow my ears pop now I guess because they are still clogged and I still have slight symptoms of congestion. Anyway I have noticed I have tinnitus and I can't ever remeber haveing this? I'm 37 so its not like I'm to young to get it but I don't listen to music very loud and I have always watched my ears with loud sounds.

Anyway is this possible to get tinnitus when you at sick? Is is permanent?

The internet is the last place you want to get medical advice

go to an ENT asap.

It's most likely due to the ear congestion. Some people can get side effects of Tinnitus while taking some decongestants. If it doesn't go away after all the Flu/cold symptoms have gone, get it checked out by a doctor.

No I quit 8 years ago. My congestion is finnaly gone but the tinnitus is still there. I still feel my ears popping when I swallow. I do think the ringing has lowe d in volume slightly, not by much but I feel it's different somehow.

I think I still have a problem on my ears but we will see.
