Hallo Tony. Sorry for the late response but there seemed to be some technical problem. You have low frequency tinnitus. Very often it will be periodically and come and go and later on it will become continuous. Tinnitus is an internal sound and is perceived by your brain. You are not loosing your brain......2. yes you should have your ears tested and even something like an earwax plug can cause tinnitus. You are welcome to share your hearing test results with me. 3. Ear plugs will not improve it but can even make it worse. Interesting about the index finger. There is help for tinnitus. Hou moed.
