      Hey all, I've been to the city today to ask around about ear wax removal as I was hoping manual removal would be possible, but unfortunately all the places I've been to only do microsuction... And from what I heard it can make tinnitus much worse or better... and naturally I think of the negatives.

      I'm trying to sleep now but if I move my head to one side I can literally hear the wax moving... ears feel full.

      If I don't get it removed soon I'll be half deaf... I really need advice, should I just stick with micro suction?

      Can't you keep expanding your search area until you find a place where they agree to clean your ears manually?

      I'd love to, but since i had to sell my motorcycle it's a little hard around here.. We have a really dumb bus system, I've spent the day looking in the city closest to me. Guess I'll just keep looking.

      I'm looking at every place around different cities and it's all micro suction... Everywhere.. I'll take their numbers down and ask for manual.. but honestly I'm fairly pessimistic about this.

      It is also possible that you are talking to secretaries who can't make the decision to be flexible and just tell you about their general policy. You might try asking those secretaries to ask the doctor about it (cleaning your ears manually, because you have tinnitus and can't handle microsuction).

      I used to call various dentists asking whether they had a laser drill. When a secretary would answer "yes", I would ask her to tell me the brand name. She would then ask a doctor about it. So it might be possible to do all of this over the phone, instead of doing it in person...
