I see from your history that you were suffering from Typhoid Fever earlier. Sometimes, certain drugs prescribed for Typhoid Fever have Ototoxic effects which have rendered you deaf to certain high frequencies. As the regular speech frequencies are not damaged, you do not perceive your deafness except the high pitched tinnitus! The only solution is to get a Pure Tone Audiometry at Asansol Medical College and opt for an RIC type hearing aid to selectively amplify only the damaged portion of the auditory spectrum!
