My right ear feels plugged and I have a loud ringing in my right ear. It is really noticeable it is coming from that ear. It has been like this for a week, before a week ago my ears felt fine.
It is really distressing, I have been known to have wax buildup and if the wax is causing the tinnitus, will the ringing eventually go away???
I dont mind some ringing but this is really really loud. (I already have Earol Olive Oil Spray and have been using that but its not helping.
Also, when I press my Tragus for my good ear, I hear a ringing which is good!! But when i press my Tragus with my bad ear, I hear no or very little difference? Is this because of the wax buildup.
I am 17 years old and I am very concerned and worried and I get very upset and frustrated with the ringing.
You need to see an ear specialist ASAP. Do not hesitate, if you have SSHL (sudden something hearing loss) there is only a brief window of time in which it can be helped, otherwise it can become permanent. Find someone that can see you tomorrow (a specialist, not a general doctor because they will just waste valuable time) and get in for a check up to see what's going on.
