Does tinnitus caused by a trauma get cured on its own?

I got slapped in my left ear yesterday and at first it started ringing and it feels like i got water in my ear . It barely hurts i can still hear from it but i hear through my right ear more loud than my left .. will this be temporary or do i have to go to the doctor ?

i have a droopy eyelid . An ice pack test works which leads me to believed i may have myasthenia gravis . i went to see an opthamologist who said this is unlikely and has sent for a blood test for MG. He said its likely to be horner s syndrome and has offered surgery for the droopy eyelid. im wary of having surgery due to not knowing the cause. I had an unexplained bruise on the front of my neck about 3 months ago and tinnitus in the left ear (same side as the droopy eyelid). The droopy eyelid started to be recognised about 4 months ago but got worse after the neck bruise. There was no trauma or explanation for this bruise and not sure if these things are linked or not...

I have been diagnosed with 8th cranial nerve damage and suffer from tinnitus, hearing loss, and vertigo as a result. They have attributed this to acoustic trauma from military service. The V.A. is recognizing the tinnitus and hearing loss but is denying the vertigo. My neurologist is insist that the vertigo is being caused by the 8th cranial nerve damage. He determined this through battery of test. Is vertigo caused by 8th cranial nerve damage from acoustic trauma? The explanation my neurologist stated was it happens because the nerve is shared by auditory signals and vestibular signals.
