Improve your PB- get your ears cleaned
« on: June 14, 2019, 06:32:49 PM »
Thought I was losing, hearing, no surprise after 500 shows or so. Hearing is fine, wax was removed. Wow much better sound! :facepalm:

What sort of Doc did you go to for this? Ear Nose and Throat or just a regular Doc?

I need to get this done.

Ear doc. Ask him how he will do it. Vacuum method worked good for me 2x, then the last guy I went to used a water jet, now I have tinnitus in that ear. Fucker! :angry3:

ENT. Gonna go in every year I think. Everything sounds better, and the static I was experiencing in my left ear during loud stuff is gone. Apparently the ears can mistake loud music for physical contact. I know, sketchy source. Regardless cleaning them out is night and day. Like 20% better.

Yeah, I have had the same experience.  As crunchy as I am, I just can't see that as a functional method of removing earwax except that I may listen better afterward because I was ear candled. Who knows though, I have heard positive things and people keep going back to get it done.

ive doone the candles, and they take ALMOST all of your ear wax out which is too much IMHO. 
like a thick log filling the candle cavity, unreal.

the warm water flush by an ENT much preferred to the vaccum, but ymmv

Do any of you use q-tips regularly? I don't go super far into the canal. But I hardly get any wax when I do.
