      Not sure
      So I don't want to go in detail on my entire situation. But to make it short, I've had tinnitus on and off for 2 years exactly soon. In recent times I've been feeling really well, the t isn't even there, only notice it at night when I'm about to sleep, and even then it doesn't bother me (unless I'm stressed).

      Yesterday I took a shower, after the shower I cleaned my ears gently with a cotton tip as I always do. But after the shower I noticed this low, still somewhat high-pitched eeeeeeeee coming out of my right ear.

      My situation has been GREAT for almost a year now.....and then this happens.

      What happened? Did I push wax further into the ear, did I damage anything? (unlikely since I am very gentle when cleaning ears... but who knows).
