I removed wax using cotton buds 3 days ago....and Tinnitus flared up since 2 days.....and now i am uncomfortable with certain sounds. My H and T initially started few days after i removed wax using cotton buds.....but i did not make the connection...now it looks like my H and T are caused by irritated ear after wax removal maybe made worse by loud music exposure. Note: Currently I am taking nasal steroids since 7 days for my ear pressure issues caused by AM 101 injections. I am now worried about my H and T getting worse....as first signs of ear damage last time was H(not T) before my T initially started. Though the symptoms are much milder this time round. Should I go to ENT and ask for prednisone? He may not give it to me as he might need evidence of hearing loss to do that. Should I get prednisone online and take it??
