Doomed Because of Excessive Earwax Production? Ear Cleanings Making Tinnitus and Hyperacusis Worse?

      Most likely sound-induced, but not entirely sure.
      So, since there's apparently no way to control how much ear wax one builds (by that, I mean; no way to prevent earwax impaction/buildup), does that mean I'll now be stuck in the cycle of "earwax impaction --> go to get it flushed out --> major (most likely permanent) increase in hyperacusis and tinnitus --> earwax impaction, etc"?

      Am I doomed to naturally buildup too much wax and have it increase my conditions permanently, again and again, for the rest of my life?

      Posting this, as I'm scared my ears are nearing another wax impaction, and after what happened last time (gave me hyperacusis and immensely increased, constantly changing tinnitus), I'm not looking forward to getting them cleaned out again...

      Good ENTs can get this out using a curved spoon device. That's how my ENT has cleaned mine out in the past. You don't have to get it flushed - find an expert.
