I had gone through your query regarding whistling sound in your right ear for last 3 months. You are also having blocked nose and as you said that you are being examined by two ENT doctors and taking medicines but felt no relief

I hope that you are suffering from sinusitis with tinnitus. Your cold have given rise to post nasal drip and thus infection reaches to throat and from here via Eustachian tube it progressed to middle ear and ultimately tinnitus.

You really need a thorough examination of ear and nose & sinuses and necessary investigations as Audiometery and radiological study of sinuses to reach to correct diagnosis and there treatment.
