I just want to say I am very sorry for your hearing loss and increased tinnitus. Is it possible the hearing loss is conductive and may reverse? I know it is easier said than done, but stress and tinnitus go hand in hand. Anything you can do to reduce your stress level, be it speak to a therapist, be in nature, meditate,… can possibly help with the tinnitus, and hopefully, your overall well being.

"Is it possible the hearing loss is conductive and may reverse?"

I don't know what conductive means. As far as I know – I mean based on what little I know about hearing trauma – it's the hair cells in the cochlea that get damaged, and once they're damaged, that's it. They don't regenerate. At least at this point there is no treatment I know of. Maybe someday.
