Anyone else suffer from this? Seems to happen to me every three years. It gets to the point where it causes headaches and loss of hearing due to blocking the ear drum. I usually go see my primary care and he will fish it out or suck it with a tool. Made an appointment for Monday don't know if I will last though.

I did once.  Doc told me to quit using q-tips.  I did.  Never happened again.

Use some Hydrogen Peroxide every once in a while, geez.

Did you try letting hot water spray in while you shower?
Link Posted: 3/5/2015 4:35:33 PM EDT
my Grandmother had that.
we thought she was going deaf.

the Dr. washed it out, and said something to her, and she replied "why are you yelling at me"?
Link Posted: 3/5/2015 4:37:13 PM EDT
Hydrogen peroxide and ear candles from time too time. Also, q-tips are not to be inserted into the ear canal.

Had it once, doc flushed ear out with a big ass syringe.  Felt really weird, but it was nice to be able to hear again.  My wife is always going at her ears with the q-tips, I've tried to warn her, but...

This, and if it's bad, hydrogen peroxide.
I use Qtips every morning after my shower, don't just shove it in, you're swabbing, not stabbing.

Quit using them?  



I'd think you'd want to use them to get the wax out.



What'd he tell you to use, your car keys?

Yep, I sure have. I buy one of those Murine kits at the drug store every few years and shock myself both by how much nasty crap comes out and by how much better I can hear after doing it.

This works pretty well for me.

ETA: I've used q tips since I was a kid and never had an issue. I'm not a retard, so, that may have something to do with it. If you jam it in and it hurts, you've gone too far.

ETA2 : Hardly anything turns my stomach, but the ear wax candle they did on Mythbusters came close to making me gag.

They make a fun little plastic thing with a round hook on the end of it. You stick it in, twist it a little and pull it out. I go all the way in.....I'm almost on the drum, which is a little painful, and there's almost something like a gag reflex when you touch it. Takes a steady and gentle hand, but damn, the shit it pulls out.

Ear candles are totally fake, you know that right?
Same as those pads for your feet that suck out toxins!
Link Posted: 3/5/2015 4:49:50 PM EDT
I'd say this happens to me every six months or so. I use one of those squirty bulbs and warm water to blast the wax out. The glob is usually the size of a pencil eraser. The difference in hearing is incredible. I don't usually notice until the wax entirely seals up my ear and I'm fully deaf.
Link Posted: 3/5/2015 4:51:08 PM EDT
I have this problem also, go to a Walmart or CVS and buy an ear flush kit. You can skip the doctor visit and do what they do. The kits are cheap.

The tip of your index finger can access every part of your ear but the canal.

 



Just clean them when you are in the shower.
Link Posted: 3/5/2015 4:54:37 PM EDT
I've tried everything to clean it out myself. Going to have the GF go in with some tweezers tonight and if that doesn't work then I may just take a trip to the emergency room. As of right now I cannot hear out of my right ear and have a bad migraine from this shit.
Link Posted: 3/5/2015 4:55:16 PM EDT
I've had it happen a couple of times. Get an ear bulb from the drug store and use it to squirt warm water in your ear to force it out. Take it into the shower with you so you don't make a mess. I do it every now and then for maintenance. I really notice the difference in my hearing after doing it even without a full blockage.

So, you've tried the Murine kit? Comes with drops and a bulb for hot water?

This is the answer. It comes with a peroxide solution you squirt into your ear, wait 5 minutes and then use a bulb plunger to squirt your ear out. Ears feel brand new after, no way would I use a Q-tip and smear shit around in my ears.

Lay on your left side and pour in hyrdrogen peroxide till your ear is full.  Lay there for 5 min.  Repeat. Then get in the shower with the water as hot as you can stand and let it spray down in there.

Oh yea. I've tried them all. The past three times I've been they've sucked it out with a tool.
Link Posted: 3/5/2015 5:00:34 PM EDT
My sister needed peroxide in her ears pretty much monthly when she was a kid, the stuff that would come out was terrible.

As far as I know mine cycle was out just fine, I wear foam ear plugs a lot though, and they usually do a good job of pulling out big blobs of the stuff.

Clean your ears on a daily basis so the wax can't build up and become impacted.  I rinse my ears in the shower and use Q-tips everyday and have never had a problem with impacted wax.









Link Posted: 3/5/2015 5:03:57 PM EDT
I use an old Water Pic to flush out impacted wax.
Link Posted: 3/5/2015 5:05:56 PM EDT
I used to have a similar problem.  Now, I use a bulb syringe once a month and blast out both ears.

Yeah, you've got it bad then. I'd get to the doctor and let them work on you. Probably gonna hurt like heck.

Search for "cockroach + ear" if you want to get to the weird section of YouTube.

I had to have my GP go to town flushing out a piece of wax that was sitting just perfectly to block my hearing, took around 15 minutes before he finally got it. Maybe I should have left it and saved money on ear protectors.

I do. In fact its pretty much impossible to be in the shower and not rinse your ears. Q-Tips are a no-no as they push the wax deeper in the ear causing the impact.

I use debrox drops and a big earwax syringe with hot water to blow the shit out.  The syringe is 10 times better than the bulb.

Exactly. I use Q-Tips all the time and I've never had any issues. If you're dumb enough to use them like a ram rod, then you get what you deserve.

I quit using Q-tips years ago; they packed in as much stuff as they got out.  Now I kinda gently scrape around in them with a nail from my 15 gauge trim nailer.  Works way better.  Just remember to use the head end, not the pointy one.
