      Hey everyone,
      It has been a long while since I last posted as I had managed to successfully get used to my T, had a few ups and downs but was happy and sleeping well! However yesterday I had an itch in my bad T ear and tried to carefully itch inside it with my finger. I was obviously not careful enough as my ear became blocked and slightly muffled. My mum had a look in my ear with a torch and said it looked very blocked up with wax.

      She then put a few drops of olive oil into my ear to help clear up the wax however my ear became completely blocked up! It feels full of water, very uncomfortable and I cannot hear a thing out of that ear! I have tried popping my ear by swallowing, etc but nothing has helped at all! It is now the next day and nothing has changed!

      I am at a loss of what to do! My T is 10x louder as it is being amplifed by my blocked ear. I cannot sleep, concentrate on anything and am feeling very low and cut off from the rest of the world. It so horrible :(

      Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

      Go see a doctor. That's the only good advice anyone can give in this instance.

      Yes, you will have relief once the wax is removed
