Tinnitus advice

Hi I have a question about Tinnitus. I was told today at my appointment I have tinnitus in my right ear and have to go to audiology to re programme my hearing aid have to wear it. I get a tapping in my ear she said was a form of tinnitus I thought it was like hissing ringing noise, can tinnitus come in different sounds? mine is like a tapping when it comes it is really annoying sometimes, I don't get it at all other times it's worse and it gets so frustrating. Also I would like to ask would a hearing aid help with this? Starting to think maybe a tinnitus support group would be worth looking into. My hearing has gone down in my right ear, just would like some advice has anyone else had this?
