Hello, I am a 15 year old girl and currently i have a flu. And i know that because there is a blockage in your nose or something that there will be some kind of ringing in your ears when you have a flu. But this time its so loud that i cant sleep. I actually havent slept in over a day. I know for some people that is nothing, but since I have a flu its really taking a toll on my body. I'm not sure if I have tinnitus, it could be possible since i take music classes in my free time (to be specific, i play percussion) so maybe i have tinnitus, but i think this is because of the flu. The only way to drown out the noise is with really loud music. Ive tried sleeping to a movie but the noise from the movie cant drown out the beeping. Also i tried doing the blowing out while pinching your nose thing, and it only worked on my right ear so it made it so much more uncomfortable. Now the hearing feels clearer in my right ear and it makes it uncomfortable to listen to almost anything. Please anyone respond, im very desperate at this moment

    It is quite possible that the Flu has caused some "Temporary" Tinnitus that will disappear with the illness. If you are ill it could be one of a few things...a blockage/fluid in the Ear, Dehydration can be a cause also. Music is a good way to manage the sound, but a little intrusive. You could try white noise or nature sounds? Is the beep in Time with your Heart beat?

    Please try not to panic. I'm pretty sure this will all be linked to you suffering with the flu at the moment. 

    You probably have a lot of fluid that isn't draining at the moment, therefore making your ears feel blocked and giving you the tinnitus sounds. 

    Give yourself a bit of time to feel better. I suffer from tinnitus and find white noise helps. You can download apps on your phone specifically for tinnitus, it might help relieve some symptoms you're feeling. 

    Flu makes you feel awful, but hopefully you'll feel much better soon. Remember just give it time
