Here are two sources for what kindling is but its very common to feel different or more intense symptoms the more times you go through this.  It's also common for symptoms to come and go or pop up out of nowhere until you're fully recovered.  Tinnitus is a very common symptom, have you had any new stress lately, that can make symptoms increase.

I believe stress is the largest contributor to increased symptom severity and it looks like you've got it coming at you from two different directions, I'm sorry.  I hope things settle at home and I'm very sorry to hear you're dealing with other health issues.

Thank you, Pamster for these links on kindling.  I was a full time, hard core kindler for many years so this helps me to understand how it could take me a longer time to heal.
