For the past couple days I've been having a constant ringing in my right ear. Along with this it feels clogged and everything sounds like when you get water in your ear. My hearing in the right ear is noticeably worse than my good ear.
Before I got these symptoms in my right ear I had the same occur in my left ear but it was almost unnoticeable and now my left ear is back to normal.
I'm concerned I may be experiencing hearing loss that could be permanent.
I should tell you that I did have a viral infection in my lungs for about 3 weeks and am still recovering from it. Just last week, I experienced congestion and went through a lot of Kleenex.
I read some other websites and figured maybe my viral infection in my lungs has spread to my ear? But I am not sure and don't want to pay a visit to a doctor unless its necessary.
I am a male, 18 years old. I am not allergic to anything and not taking any medication.
