Suggest treatment for tinnitus and cold

Hi. I ve recently had a headcold but its gone now. During the cold my right ear had ringing in it on and off but now that s gone too. For the last 2 days anything that has a high frequency like my cat meowing and my grandson talking, sounds as if their voices are speaking through a fan. Now even my TV sounds like it. Its like a vibrating sound. Its making g me feel quite I ll. Do u know what this is please?

You are right is due to cold itself. Because there is connection between nose and ear through euchtachian tube. So due to cold , your infection spread to ear and due to that reason you are feeling like tinitus.
Now you have to take Tab.LevoCetrizine 5mg OD Or BD for 5-7 days , Tab.Amox-clav 625 BD for 5 days and Tab.Brufen BD for 5 days.

Last Thursday I woke up with ringing in my right ear. The ear felt plugged and sound was somewhat muffled. I went to my primary doctor who said to try a decongestant for 2-3 days. No change as of yet. I have not had a cold or sinus infection or any other illness. I do not swim or dive and I do not listen to headphones or loud music. What could it be?
