Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
There are many causes of tinnitus, but usually they do not cause hearing loss in the affected ear. The commonest cause of hearing loss, tinnitus, vertigo is Meniere’s disease and hence this is being suspected in your case. Impaction of wax, perilymph fistula, autoimmune hearing loss, and acoustic neuromas are the other causes of hearing loss in one ear, tinnitus and unsteadiness. Please discuss this with the ENT and go for the requisite tests.
