YES! - That’s what we’re trying to tell you, Ferfooksake !! It’s 2 different conditions, both can lead to Tinnitus. In the case of infections etc. a patient may have success with various treatments (as in your case). In the case where your hearing is damaged by noise and your hair cells in the ear are damaged, the Tinnitus will be permanent and CAN NOT BE REPAIRED with current technology or medicine. This is a fact; ask any Doctor who specializes in this.It wasn't the only thing but it was a thing he did refer to.
If you still don’t get, I strongly suggest you take this thread from the top.
