see an ear specialist.

if it really is tinnitus then they have ear plugs that play white noise around the frequencies of the tinnitus to help train you to ignore it

as to mixing dont even think about it until you fix your ears
although you could do it by sight looking at the waveforms if you were experienced enough before you became another beethoven

and keep the MAX dBA below 75 at all times now
I did not do over 85db. There is no way. But, that week, I did several days straight and long hours. Of course with breaks. I never thought I could damage my ears doing too much music... And I did adjust some high frequency content and also my kick/drum bassline and my chair a neck rest in it which kinda bounces all the sounds straight into my ear. That is not good.

I visited ENT today, told me that I am most like going to be OK. I am on cortisone now for few weeks.

It feels like my tinnitus has gone down maybe very slightly. Not much, but maybe a notch.

Also I did a hearing test at ENT (not in optimal conditions) just to let myself know.

My hearings is at normal levels. Which is very good! But they don't test over 8khz which is kinda sad.

Anyway, I am hopeful.
