Today I woke up with muffled hearing in my left ear that has over the day been randomly making crackling noises. Both issues disappeared/were less noticeable for a few hours after using a cotton bud (which had a fair amount of wax).
If it still is the same when I wake up tomorrow, I’m wondering what I should do. I shouldn’t really have used the cotton bud, and I can’t use olive oil (I have a perforated eardrum).
I had an ear infection a few months ago and have also had random moments of my ear leaking for no apparent reason (though I noticed it begun a few weeks after a fall).
I understand the NHS are pretty cash-strapped so I don’t want to waste unnecessary money, but I also just want to know what is causing it, so I thought I’d also ask here too.
