I’ve had tinnitus for around 10 years. Neuro thinks it’s MS related as goes up in volume when MS symptoms are bad. It is a really difficult thing to live with. I’m sort of used to it but sometimes I could scream. I never ever have silence. Very upsetting at times.
You really need to see your doctor about the loss of hearing. It can be caused by a whole bunch of stuff but the sooner you get it seen to the better. The eardrum is a very sensitive organ and an infection needs to be treated asap.
I also get TN!!! And I get it on my left side which is also the side where my tinnitus sounds loudest! So who knows, could be related. MS related tinnitus is quite common but not sure if anyone has linked it with TN.
Hope besides these problems you are doing well,
Love Pat xxx
