Hi folks, I recently developed tinnitus over the last month

Hi folks, I recently developed tinnitus over the last month or so in my right ear. I believe a sinus infection triggered it. Initially the ringing would only come on at night, as soon as I put my head on the pillow, but it would disappear if I sat up. However, now I just have the ringing all day and change in head position has no effect. I work with kids so I tend to get sick a lot. A few months before I blew my nose too hard and heard something pop in my ear, ringing followed for a few minutes but then it seized. Maybe that’s where the problem started. It just seems to be getting worse, not better, even though the sinus infection seems to have almost completely cleared. I know I have to go to the doc. Am I crazy to give it one more week?

Ceased** not seized :)

honestly, I would go asap, only because I don't know what has happened, and so I don't know if time is a factor

Thanks :) I’m trying to get an appointment.

@Skylarks good deal. I really hope this works out ok
