If you decide you need medical help, I have an amazing doctor. Dr. Barbara Esses at Denver Ear Associates - ###-###-####. She's an ENT with a Neurology specialty and ears are her primary area of expertise. I'd had vertigo for 2 years and been to innumerable doctors, therapists and alternative/natural healers, with no success. After the first visit, she prescribed some super mild diuretics and my vertigo disappeared within 2-3 days. I still have the ringing, but it is better. She said that many people who have been in car accidents often have tinnitis. Doesn't sound like that's the case for you, but still, Esses was recommended by about 4 different people in the medical community that were in very different areas of town and specialties.
And thanks to the rest of you for suggestions on natural methods. I'll try some of the oils.
