Hi, I recently started having tinnitus a week ago in my right ear. Firstly, it was a quiet ring, but since around 2 days ago, it has gotten really high-pitched. I've seen two doctors, and they have both come to the conclusion that the cause of my tinnitus is impacted ear wax. Both of them said my ear wax was so bad that they could not even see my ear drum, even after a week of olive oil. From yesterday, I've started using sodium bicarbonate ear drops. I also have an appointment to have microsuction on Tuesday. What I'm rather scared and panicky about is whether the ringing will reduce after suctioning. I was quite calm when tinnitus started but ever since it has gotten very high-pitched and loud, I'm scared that this won't help at all. Has anyone been in my position before, and did removing the ear wax help? The tinnitus is currently really distressing as I have numerous assignment deadlines, and exams to revise for, but I'm struggling to do anything currently.
