Good evening, I am Dr Ruff. Thank you for contacting us today.

I am sorry that you are experiencing Tinnitus. Tinnitus is always important to address, an examination is needed to exclude an obstructive cause, as wax can cause this. If there is no obstruction then an Audiology assessment is needed to see if there is any hearing loss and a head MRI to find the cause.
