What causes severe tinnitus mastoid-obliteration surgery?

I am Totally Deaf, I had to have complete Obliterations in ears, all I have is Skin taken from my Tummy and skin graft from audio Pathway to inner ear to middle and to outer ear Canal, have Nothing in ears whatever and dead Nerves. I had Cerebral Abcess when I was 19 im now closing in on 64. I m trying to be Guinea Pig for trials of Vegas Nerve Stimulation I ve asked so many people in UK, but I m not getting anywhere? OK I have severe Tinnitus L ear is hisssss that never Stops and yes it wakes me I go to bed watch a film, then take Amitryptaline,I leave diazepam for sever muscle spasms, gladly not everyday that s on L side, R ear I have all sorts of noises, they both so bad yes I ve tried to commit suicide, I have manys suicidal tendencies. But past week I m having what feels like electric shock from Temple to temple. It changes L to R, or Right to L, now something new to left side when it R to L I get pain just above eyes and down L of face that was for 2 days then it changed again the pain went down arm to Elbow. And leaves arm numb for couple hrs, I also suffer Bells Palsy but this is different and it s getting more Frequent. But I feel so desperate about this Tinnitus, I guess you can imagine, I m in dire needs for help. I had walk out on my dr because he refused to write and also refused to use Monitor, my old Dr now retired used his monitor to help, but these new young ones I think are NOT Deaf Aware. Sorry ramble I m in need of help, with Tinnitus and as I said the new item across head, is not nice I ve had headache all week, I m not eating very well because with headache I also am being sick. Thanks for listening. CJ
