      Hey Everyone,

      Just wanted to share some information about my tinnitus and my journey so far.

      About a year ago I decided to clear my ears out with Q-Tips against my fiancé’s better judgement. As I cleared my left ear I managed to push ear wax further into the ear canal and in doing so clogged my left ear completely. I could not hear a thing. I went to the emergency room and they sent me home with a solution to dissolve the ear wax. After proceeding with the solution I managed to get the wax out after a couple days.

      The day after I got the wax out I started to hear a high pitched noise in my left ear. I freaked out. Over the next couple days I did not sleep at all. It was the worst experience of my life. As I lay awake I researched my symptoms and my issues only to come up with the worst threads on tinnitus. I was told that this is the worst thing that you could do but obviously in a state when you can’t sleep you just want to find out what’s wrong with you.

      Eventually I tried to go back to work but given my lack of sleep and persistent noise in my ear I went into a full panic mode when I got to my office. I ended up going to the emergency room only to get sent home with a here take this to sleep and make an appointment with your GP. I proceeded to get every test possible to make sure I was ok medically. I was ok.

      I was hesitant about writing this post because of all the bad memories that arose but I want to make sure that everyone is aware that you can make it through this.

      I am here to answer all questions and let people know how I deal and dealt with this.

      It is great that you are OK medically, but you do not mention if your tinnitus is still there or not.
