About two months ago, I woke up one day and my ear had a clogged feeling to it. Now, my ear has done this two other times before, and it took less than an week to have that "pop!" Though, ever since the second time got clogged and popped, my ear clogged every evening when I went to bed, and would pop every morning. One Saturday morning, I woke up and noticed my ear wouldn't pop. I immediately panicked, this would be the third time my ear has done this.
Well, much to my dismay of hoping my ear would pop, it still hasn't. At first, I thought I maybe ruptured my eardrum— exposing my ear that particular Friday to my loud music. But that hadn't been the case. One day, I felt ear wax started to come out of my ear, it was kind of a funny 'let me out!' feeling. So, I stuck my finger into my ear and a HUGE clump of ear wax came out.
I decided to put some of my wax softener solution in my ear to break down the earwax, but the solution wasn't going down my ear. Upon asking my mother to examine my ear, she had told me I had A LOT of ear wax. So, using the LOOP side of a booby pin, she extracted tons of soft AND hard ear wax that my ear occupied. Then, she proceeded to put the ear solution in my ear, and it felt like a mentos in coke experiment in my ear canal!
Aside from that, my mother managed to get a lot of ear wax upon sitting half an hour with the ear solution. Though, ny ear still hasn't popped. Now, I wasn't expecting immediate results, but I gave it a couple of days for my ear to adjust to the new, clean environment, but still nothing! I went to my local physician, and he simply said I still had a lot of ear wax.
That day, we tried the ear solution again, and of course, we extracted some old ear wax that I maybe pushed into my ear way back when with a q tip. We repeated the extraction process per the recommendation of the manufacturer of the solution— 4 days. We managed to get some ear wax, but recently, it's just recent ear wax.
My ear is still super clogged, currently waxless, and STILL ringing! Honestly, I don't even know what's going on with it anymore! Ruptured eardrum? Earwax clogged my eardrum? What is it?!
I want to go to an ENT, but (my physician explained what they'd do) all they're going to do is flush the ear wax I probably don't have out. What do I do?! What's wrong with my ear? Will it get better?!
