Hi Mr. XXXXXXX ,
Thanks for the query.
As per your clinical history it appears as you are having Tinnitus ( sound in ear ).
Tinnitus is a symptom . There can be many reasons for tinnitus .
Common are
1) wax
2) Infection
3) Eustachian tube blockage
4) Noise trauma
5) Hypertension
6) Vasular malformation
7) Psycogenic
8) Ototoxic drugs, etc.
If you are having cold which is common then it is due Eustachian tube blockage or infection in ear.
I will suggest you to please consult your ENT doctor because here clinical examination is very important to diagnose the real fact and accordingly treatment may be planed.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
