Hi.

Aside from these, do you also experience any other symptoms such as hearing loss? Neck pain? Does the dizziness worsen with change in position? Any eye movement symptoms?

The clinical presentation of tinnitus and dizziness can occur in many types of conditions including acoustic neuroma, barotitis media, benign paroxysmal vertigo, cervical spondylosis, eustachian tube disorders, labyrinthitis, meniere's disease, otitis, etc.

The treatment for tinnitus would involve treating the underlying cause. It would be advisable for you to consult an ENT physician to evaluate your condition and do some tests such as audiometry and other hearing tests.

Good luck.

Hi,
It would be advisable that you consult an ENT surgeon at the earliest.
Now though your symptoms do point towards vertigo, the underlying pathology of vertigo needs to be evaluated.
Hence mentioned by DrGodofredoMD, all these conditions can give rise to similar symptoms.
Few of these can be treated.
