I just had this done on my right ear recently. Feels real weird having it done, but aside from that zero issues afterwards.

For me, I could feel/hear stuff in my ear anytime something caused a pressure change, like yawning etc. So went in to the Dr and had him look at my ears, would never recommend anyone try ear wax removal on their own.

Damn did that stuff look nasty though, who knows how long that stuff was up there.

I had found that sounds were "dull" and noticeably reduced on the one side. I couldn't hear light/minor sounds whatsoever.

And for anyone who thinks this is due to someone not taking care of themselves - it is not. I clean my ears at least every couple of days and I think that only made it worse by packing shit up in there.

Anyway Cancer Man, I really think you ought to go back and get it checked out unless you enjoy living like you feel drunk. I just can't see how removing any built up wax could cause the issues you are experiencing. If anything, your balance should be improved unless something really weird happened like your brain learned to compensate and now can't handle the strong signals. (Which seems unlikely, but I'm no doctor)

Cotton swabs might pick up an insignificant amount of wax at the ear edge, but over all, it makes the problem worse by packing wax further into the canal.

I know, I know, "but it feels so damn good!

Mine does, but then again he does vasectomies and god knows what else too

Not sure if an ENT would bother with it on an ongoing basis.

Not sure if they would attempt it, but many do this method:

Ear Candles and Candling: Ineffective and Dangerous

When mine got so clogged I couldn't hear my alarm in the morning I knew something had to be done. That was like 15 years ago, never had another problem since

Where can you get your ear flushed? Just at a regular clinic?



Some clinics won't do this for you, I would recommend calling ahead to see if they will do it.

Also I took a slapshot off the ear, blew a hole right through my ear drum (could see the bones behind it) didn't experience any vertigo)

And why am i answering this question 2:30 am because
i can't sleep with the room turning over and over.
Feels better upright but laying down forget it.



Dude, as people have said earlier, you need to get this looked at again ASAP. Persistent vertigo after ear irrigation is NOT common. A ruptured eardrum/tympanic membrane would be on the differential diagnosis. Let us know how it goes.

I had a scuba diving accident 6 months ago Barotrauma was the original diagnosis (blood in the ear) rather common (?) The Doc also thought I had a perilymph fistula - fluid leaking in the ear caused by a hole, man!
If I can say one thing- the ear has got to be one of the most frustrating parts of the body to have complications. Nobody knows much and going to see an ENT specialist takes forever.
Tinnitus is annoying as fuc, I've had it the full 6 months off and on, things that helped me at night, sleeping with your head elevated (higher than normal) rest easy pal, the ear is precious and do everything the doc's say!

For the ringing, try this and see if it helps at all
