      Hi all, hope you are well. I just wanted some advice/explanation on what is going wrong with me.

      It started out on Wednesday when I caught a cold and went to the doctor. She wanted to check my ears, but said they were too full of wax and I would need to use Waxsol for 2 nights to soften the wax. I have done that and ever since my tinnitus has increased, even after 2 days of using the Waxsol. I've now woken up on early Monday morning with a completely blocked left ear and the same increased tinnitus.

      Any answers would be appreciated as I am an autistic girl with very heightened anxiety who is terrified and could use any help I can get.

      Thank you.

      Edit: Should add I have a doctors appointment booked for Thursday but would like any help in the meantime.

      Band practice/shooting incident.
      I would assume if softening the wax isn't getting it to come out naturally you may need to just clean your ears or have someone at a clinic do it.

      Best thing to use is 3% hydrogen peroxide. I put up 2-3 FULL eye droppers or about 3-5 ml of hydrogen peroxide in each ear or until it bubbles a lot, I do this about every month. After about 10 mins in each ear or until the bubbling stops I then get in the shower and let water get into my ears. Not sure if this is the best thing for everyone, my tinnitus is from my neck/jaw.

      You should ask for manual removal from the doctor. Some people on this forum advise against microsuction.
