In brief: First, diagnosis
Hearing loss associated with tinnitus is very common.
You need an audiogram and a good look at the ear drum to make an appropriate diagnosis. You could have otosclerosis (fixation of the stirrup bone in the middle ear). You could have inner ear deafness which could be improved with a hearing aid. The amplification may make the tinnitus less noticeable. Bottom line, you need a diagnosis.
