I think that you should probably make an appointment with your local
audiologist.  Keeping track of your hearing status should be something
that a person with tinnitus should do.  Ask someone in your area to
recommend an Ears, Nose, and Throat physician who has a good audiologist
on staff.

Good Luck...
