Right ear feels plugged and loud ringing

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.

Regards,

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.

Re: Right ear feels plugged and loud ringing

I agree with the above post 100%.. Go see a ENT, not a PCP and get it checked out asap..
