I have a mild-moderate degree tinnitus. I can understand almost every conversation. Im also a drummer. How do I prevent further hearing loss/tinnitus?
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. ...Read more

See ENT: Yes, see an ENT doctor. I personally do not believe that a topical nasal steroid would improve eustachian tube function. But what is important is that if you have a hearing loss and tinnitus, you need an otoscopic (ear) exam and an audiogram (hearing test). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have profound senioural hearing loss with severe tinnitus. Would a baja help me to hear what behind me. In a crowd I am overwhelmed by all the noise?
Baha implant: These are used for severe single sided deafness in many cases, thus you must have good hearing in one ear. They can also be used for conductive hearing loss of one ear. I don't know if your hearing loss is bilateral, but if it is, this aid would not help. For profound bilateral hearing loss, you either need conventional hearing aids or cochlear implants. ...Read more

yes: Tinnitis is a symptom, not a disease. Chronic tinnitis is a descriptive problem that can occur for several reasons. Noise, or ringing in the ears (tinnitis) can be a signal of damage to the ears for any reason, including medication toxicity, excessive noise or trauma. It is still best to have it evaluated, to see if there is some unknown hearing loss, or ear problem that needs treatment. ...Read more

I know tinnitus is a sign. But how often is tinnitus a foreshadow of total hearing loss? If that's around the corner, I want to be mentally ready. :(
No relationship : Tinnitus does not in any way project the severity or progression of hearing loss. The two are not related in this way. Hearing typically degrades very slowly over time. The average person loses 5 to 10 dB of hearing per decade from the age of 30 onwards. You're not going to lose your hearing soon. Do you see in ENT for an exam and full audiometry. ...Read more
