How Can I Deal With Moderate Tinitus

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?

Patting head with hands using moderate force provides relief from this high pitch tinnitus I've been having. But am I risking mild concussion?

Could moderate to severe stenosis in cervical and thoracic spine cause pain, weakness in the upper arm, dizziness and tinnitus when stretChing my neck?
Some advice: Although your symptoms could be prompted by cervical stenosis or even nerve pinching at the foraminal outlet, the dizziness, and tinnitus, makes me wonder about co-morbidities, and would think of inner ear issues, but also vascular problems, such as subclavian steal syndrome. Find a neurologist who is open to investigating this more thoroughly. ...Read more
Tinnitus relief: There are few remedies clearly proven to reduce tinnitus. If hearing loss is sufficient, the use of hearing aids may "mask" the tinnitus sensation. Background noise such as radio or fan in the bedroom can serve the same purpose. Elimination of drugs such as Aspirin or Lasix (furosemide) which may cause tinnitus can help, too. I would be wary of "tinnitus relief" medications, as little data supports them. ...Read more
