There are various treatments for tinnitus ranging from leaving it to heal its self to medication.
Correcting Hearing Loss
Tinnitus is a side effect to nearly any degree of hearing loss and should be addressed sooner rather than later to stop the tinnitus getting worse, meaning more un-comfort and ear pain. Correcting hearing loss means the audio parts of the brain aren't over compensating for hearing impairment and so don't hear tinnitus.
Correcting hearing loss comes in varying forms and you should consult with your GP and the specialist they refer you too. They can recommend the best treatments from hearing aids to surgery. Tinnitus is also reduced because sounds you couldn't hear before will mask tinnitus effects if your tinnitus is minor.
