A doctor has provided 1 answer

Nerve Injury: The chronic exposure to intense, loud noise trauma has likely caused sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). You need to protect your ears from loud noise using ear plugs. You also need to follow with your ENT for surveillance audiograms. You can decrease your tinnitus by using a hearing aid specific to your frequency loss.
