Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

The loud noise is known as tinnitus.

You had a stomach virus.

Now the viral infection can also affect the inner ear.

The inflammation can result in tinnitus.

Aspirin also can add to the problem even in small doses.

So do not take any aspirin now.

The symptoms should gradually subside over next few weeks.

Ginkgo biloba 400 mg twice daily and niacin 250 mg daily can be used to help with the symptoms.

They improve the blood flow to the inner ear organ called cochlea and hence the symptoms may improve faster.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
