3 days ago hurt ear with q-tip. Pain. Felt like fluid in ear too. Pain is gone, but have had tinnitus for 2 days. Likely ruptured ear drum?

Ear exam. Did your ear feel blocked before you used a qtip in it? If not then you may have traumatized the canal or drum. I recommend an ear exam to see if the canal is blocked with wax or traumatized or if the canal or drum has been traumatized.
