Hello I am Dr Ravinder Sharma ENT surgeon
On the basis of information provided it appears that the two are unrelated issues. As ths is a single isolated episode and if you experience similar problem again or some new change then it is advisable to consult the treating doctor (if feasable)

I hope this answers your concerns. Feel free to contact me if your need more information on this

With warm regards
