Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor Service. I reviewed your query and here is my answer.
As you said you have hearing loss and tinnitus then its cause should be ruled out, like wax in the ear the most common cause which can be treated easily, or it coulb be due to ear drum or nerves or other cause which will required proper ear examination and may be some tests. But as for as tinnitus is concerned, it can be cured if underlying cause is found and treated. But there is no proper medication for tinnitus, you need to get adopted to it, or use earphones or keep urself busy in other things like divert your mind.
Hope i answered your query, feel free to ask for more. Thanks

About 10 years ago I had parts of my mastoid removed. After the surgery I had severe hearing loss, tinnitus, and no feeling in my ear. Doctors said it ll always be that way. In the last week, I ve had random bloody discharge from same ear, minor pain, and when I touch my ear and move it around I hear what sounds like mastoid air pockets moving around. What could be this sudden change in my ear behavior?
