Tinnitus and loss of hearing need not be related.

You need to see a doctor if either suddenly appears - or suddenly worsens.

Tinnitus can be a symptom of a hearing loss and several other things including head trauma, but it does not cause hearing loss. If the tinnitus is getting worse the hearing loss may be getting worse thus less outside ordinary sounds masking out the tinnitus inside the head
