I just scheduled a visit to my primary care provider to talk about my tinnitus. Of course, today the ringing seem less pronounced. Placebo effect? My ears still feel clogged up, though. I have a tendency to minimize my symptoms, and, like most medical professionals, she doesn't get too worried about anything unless it's a life-threatening condition. I need to be specific and clear with her about how annoying this condition is. Although I'm hopeful that impacted ear wax is the cause, I hope she'll give me a referral to an ENT if removing the wax doesn't stop the ringing.
