Default Trouble With Tinnitus

So I've been around noise all my life. Construction worker, the military, active and Guard for 23 years, and a guitar player banging around most of my life. I retired from it all, and my tinnitus became stable, annoying as all hell, but manageable.

Now I've taken up the drums, and it's really flaring up again. I always play with ear plugs, but then I often put headphones on over them to play along with the drum less tracks and such. I obviously have to turn it up pretty loud in order to hear everything and I also have to loosen up on the plugs abit, or I can't hear anything. Frustrating.

I'm not sure what else I can do. I know it will never go away, I just don't want it to get worse. Do you guys have any suggestions?
