A referral to ENT and a hearing test is recommended. Avoid medications which may increase tinnitus. Review other symptoms with your physician or during a virtual consult with HT. Watch for imbalance, dizziness and nausea

Agree with advice from Dr Dosanjh, but would add some approaches. If hearing loss is playing a role, hearing aides might be of value. If you are taking chronic medication, you might be having side effects. Lastly, a Tinnitus Masker device might eliminate, but also could compromise hearing.

What is the best treatment for tinnitus?

No treatment cure: Tinnitus may be the result of vascular disease, brain lesions and ear disease among others. The most common cause of tinnitus is hearing loss, so a hearing test is necessary. Treatment depends on the cause. Start with a general medical visit. Then see an otolaryngologist to make sure there are no other symptoms and get a hearing test.
