Brief Answer:
Do not delay in treatment any further

Detailed Answer:
This constant and buzzing sound could be because of many reasons. And as you said you had exposure to cold then you need to undergo some Audiological tests.
I do not understand why you waited for past 8 months.

You must also see that whether you have any hearing loss or Dizziness or blocked sensation in ears.

You can see an ENT specialist and get done --
1. ----Pure Tone Audiometry (Hearing tests)---For any associated hearing loss which can be at high frequency and you are not aware of it.
2.----Impedance Audiometry ---To know position of middle ear for any fluid as you said you had cold
3.----If there is any problem in these above two tests then few other tests are also there like Tone decay , SISI etc, which your ENT doctor can guide you for.
4.----MRI Brain --To see for the condition of brain parenchyma and the nerves.
5.--Blood sugar, blood pressure,Thyroid function tests,Complete blood count.

Now you start with antibiotics and decongestants orally and intranasally and in addition multivitamins --consult your doctor and he will guide for the tests and the treatment depending on blood tests reports.
My advice is --Do not Delay any further

Can you please, suggest any ENT doctors in this regard or can I fix an appointment with you. I live in Delhi, Malviya Nagar. Also please, suggest the labs where I can get these tests done. I am new in Delhi, that is why I am asking.

I have seen an ENT doctor here in Malviya Nagar within 2 weeks of this condition but the guy told me that this will get better with the weather and gave me an ear drop called Clearwax and a medicine to inhale. It didn't improve anything.
I also saw an ENT doctor in Patna, my home town, a few months ago and he gave me some strong medicines related to paralysis, I think and also prescribed audiometry test. But that also didn't help. That is why I decided to start over again. None of the doctors took any Xray or did anything to see inside my ear.
I seriously need to know the condition inside my ear that if fluids are blocking my hearing or the bone has deformed or anything else is causing this condition. I also took Homeopathy medicines for one month and did some breathing exercises as well but without any results and left the medication.

Please, suggest.
