      Tinnitus Since:
      November 5, 2017
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      probably pepto bismo and aspercreme

      Today my ear doctor cleaned wax from my ear which caused a noticeable spike in my tinnitus.

      It was basically a thoughtless and stupid thing to do.

      Is this something to worry about in the long term, or should it disappear overnight? Very upset.

      Thank you very much.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I do recall few people posting about the dangers of microsuction (if that was the method used)
      Manual cleaning is the only way for someone with Tinnitus.
