      I heard that someone might get tinnitus after having their ears irrigated / syringed. Is that really possible?? Did anyone on here get tinnitus from that?

      yes it's possible. I've read of many people getting t due to it. Put a few drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide in the ears to clean it out.

      Putting olive oil drops from the chemist with a dropper in your ears every day for a week to ten days prior to wax removal should make sure the crusted wax is soft enough for removal that can build around your drum....lots of love glynis

      Yes, it was my case too. But prior to the ear irrigation, I started to hear short ringings that stopped when I pressed my ear with a finger. I've read an article where it says that irrigation is a very unsafe procedure and every once in a while causes ear damage. Don't know what to think: http://www.healthy.net/Health/Article/QA/5916
