How does it affect your life?
can't hear you
Haven't had it done for the past five - I am as deaf as a fucking post right now.
Mine have needed doing four times in the last year.
I must have an overactive something.
...guess that joke doesn't work so well in written form. Who knew.
Seriously tho, I quite enjoy the sensation - guess that probably wears off after the fourth time in a year however.
Apart from the last time where it felt like my eardrum was being bludgeoned in. My fault for forgetting to use the drops first.
...need to sort a new doctor anyways. I feel a good syringing coming on.
I heard (lol) that they just tell you to use olive oil
I got mega scary dizzy once. Went straight to the docs from work thinking that I was gonna die at any moment. Turns out it was probably an ear infection thingy. Got told to do the olive oil thing prior to a syringing. I tried. Didn't seem to have much effect. Syringing ended up being partially effective. Haven't felt dizzy since. C'est la vie.
Thanks. I keep getting really painful sinuses and had another nose bleed this morning. That's all I wanted to say. I'd quite like some sympathy, but, y'know...whatevs.
Too much air travel recently, in my case, with a a head cold. Have you tried steaming?
I can't seem to get well recently :(
and its bright orange wax.
do you use orange shampoo or conditioner?
Its just naturally orange.
but I have noticed that my ears are a bit waxier since I changed from earphones to proper headphones
I think the proper in-ear earphones pull more of it out or something, whereas headphones just leave it in so it builds up. That's my theory anyway
apparently thats not really good for you. You should let the wax build up and your ears will clean themselves. (not really up for that tho)
I still have a bit of a banger in my ear.. sounds like dragons are flying in the distance sometimes, and it pops when i swallow food or drink or when i yawn. :/ i really need to go and get it out. I just hate the hospital so much!
so yeah, i havent cleaned my right ear in about two weeks.. feels gross. Im too scared ill push the banger stone further in.
you put a couple of drops in before you go to sleep and it dislodges all the wax or something. She said it works exactly the same at Otex (or whatever its called) but I still paid for the proper stuff
i might do the same tonight. Really panicing everytime it pops or when i hear the dragons.
I think i might even have the proper stuff here. Could be out of date, i havent used it in a long long time.
When the wax dislodges, does it come out itself?
You should probably stop saying things like 'when i hear the dragons' though, makes you sound a bit mental
but thanks, ill try the shower thing too
People have different kinds of earwax depending on their genetics. Otex has only ever made my ears worse but olive oil makes them better. I think Otex makes the wax harder so it falls out.
Where I could feel/hear it when I opened my mouth/moved my jaw. Fished it out with a cotton bud.
It was so satisfying I felt like I should have had a cigarette afterwards.
Other than that, doesn't really affect me.
Makes me feel the way most boys seem to feel about pooing.
