Tinnitis : Tinnitis can have varying pitches and typically points to an inner ear problem that isn't related to wax in your ear (which can cause a conductive hearing loss). The best way to initially assess this is with an audiogram that your ENT can perform.

Not sure what you : Are asking. Tinnitus is an inner ear problem but ear wax build up affecting the tympanic membrane/ear drum can cause this. My guess is that the er tx inflamed the ear drum and caused the tinnitus. You should see an ENT doc.
