    Hello, I agree with Raji above. As you have use the words sudden onset and muffled speech I would recommend the following:

    1. See you GP and report your aural symptoms.

    2. Get a full diagnostic audiological evalution to ascertain any differences in your hearing/ears. Ensure you have a speech audiogram performed too.

    3. Listen to the results from the audiologist; they may recommend return for medical opinion from GP to ENT, annual hearing review etc...

    As tinnitus is a symptom, coupled with muffled speech and sudden onset, it is recommended you seek intervention from a medico and or audiologist.
