ear blockage due to cold?
I have a really bad cold at the moment- runny nose, sore throat etc. And my right ear is slightly blocked- not too bad but still very annoying. The hearing in it seems to be not that badly affected, but my balance is off and it just feels strange.
Anyway, I was wondering if this is due to the cold/flu I have at the moment, or if it could be caused by wax? I can't see a doctor at the moment as I have lectures 9-5 every day at uni, and have to make an appointment a week in advance as it is (with everyone getting colds etc at the moment).
Just to add, I had my tragus (the piece of cartilage in front of my ear) pierced just over 2 months ago, haven't had any problems with it and don't THINK it's related. I guess I'm just a little paranoid.
Any advice on how to get rid of it?
Thanks guys xxxxx
