Can't hear out of my left ear... Jul. 4th, 2009 @ 10:41 AM Reply

This is generally becoming quite frustrating.

I woke up this morning having lost the ability to hear out of my left ear, this is due to a build up of wax, I expect.

I at first attempted to insert some small objects into my ear in order to remove the wax, i'm not in a position where I can't even touch my ear without extreme pain.

I've tried a cotton wool ball covered in hot oil in the ear, for around an hour, and has done NOTHING to assist the removal.

I'm at the point now where i'm contemplating ripping the thing off, it's just annoying the crap out of me.. Does anyone know of any ways in which I can attempt to remove it, i'm going to hop in the shower and when I get back i'll review the comments.

Thanks for your time.

Both of my ears are all stopped up, but not for a buildup of wax or anything. Maybe it's your sinuses telling you that 'HEY BITCH, IT'S SINUS SEASON, GET YO ASS INSIDE'.

Well, that sucks. Can't say it's happened to me.. but I went to the doctors to get my ears cleaned, it was disgusting and felt weird but I could hear a lot better afterwords. I suggest you try this.

It could be wax, but it could very well be a Sinus Infection.

Go to a doctor, and stop shoving shit down your ears.

When you take a shower let one of the streams from the shower head wash your inner ear sit there for about 20-30 seconds then do the other ear. Should clean it out pretty good.

Don't stick anything else into your ear. Things like that just push the wax further back. Go and find some Hydrogen Peroxide, pour a capful into your ear and go lay down for a good 15 minutes; let everything bubble up. The peroxide is going to react to the wax because it's dirty and it's gonna bubble like crazy, bringing all the wax up. I had a problem with impacted wax like that and it took 4 or 5 different sessions of using peroxide, but short of going to a doctor this is the best you can do.

Here's something you might want to try, if you ever get the wax out. Clean your ears every day or two, that way you aren't in this situation again


Seriously, who even reads these things anymore?

Well...this may sound strange.
Do you know that rubbery thing used to perform the enema?
Well,instead of putting it there,fill it with water,insert the long thing at the end of it in your ear (it must be quite deep inside,but be careful not TOO deep,as it can rarely perforate your eardrum) and then spray the water inside your ear. The wax should then come out really easily.

Just get some ear drops from a local pharmacy, they usually do the trick quite nicely.

If this doesn't do the trick, it could be earache, and all you need to do is drink more water and visit your doctor, and he should give you some anti-biotics. This happened to me a few years back in the middle of class.

I then got an E for not being able to listen in the listening test...

If you plug your nose and blow out, does it make your ears pop?

What pops is usually the sinus cavities and canals. I had problems in my first year of university after getting mono where I lost the hearing in my left ear due to blocked sinus canals. My doctor recommended that I pop my ears every couple of hours to keep things moving while I was placed on antibiotics.

Hopefully you can rule out the sinuses if you can pop both your ears.

If you go to your family doctor, he'll be able to clean out the ear for ya.

Or just go to your nearest pharmacy and ask them.

Holy JESUS

I just tried that (as I currently have 2 infected inner ears and I'm on antibiotics), and my right ear just made sounds like someone was circuit-bending small electronics in my ear.

You need to have your ears flushed, which means going to the doctor.

This happened to me a bit ago, and so I made a thread about it, and someone posted the following message:

"I suggest: Puting peroxide into both of your ears in order to clean up any excess ear wax. (http://www.ehow.com/how_4450793_put-per oxide-ears.html)"

I've never done this myself, but apparently it works.

Yeah it's just a buildup of wax, just go to the doc and get the bitch cleaned out.
I've had the problem a couple of times, the doc just sprays hot water in your ear with some sort of needle and you'll be able to hear again. It won't even hurt ;)


Meh.
