Hi madam, tinnitus because of ear trauma can be because of 2 reasons.
1. Rupture of ear drum.
2.trauma to hearing nerve.
Ear drum rupture can be detected clinically. If it is ruptured then it takes 6 weeks to heal on its own. Does not need any treatment provided the ear is kept dry.
injury to nerve can be detected by audiometry test.
Treatment: steroids+ betahistine+ multivitamin for 3 weeks to 3 months.
