| | ear clogged during sleep - need help to un-clog it
last night, i woke up and itched the inside of my ear. it went weird: it felt clogged and started to buzz. i didnt think much about it, and fell back to sleep. this morning, i woke up, and realized just how clogged it is.
+ left ear is extremely clogged - can barely hear out of it
+ feeling of fullness
+ doesnt hurt
+ faint buzzing
+ if i jiggle my finger in my ear, it partially unclogs, but immediately re-clogs itself
does anyone know any techniques to unclog an ear? im fairly q-tip phobic, but perhaps i lodged ear wax far into the canal when i itched my ear last night.
my biggest worry is that my TMJD is causing this, since ive had minor ear problems since september.
thank you so much for your help. im probably being paranoid, tho, and it'll clear up on its own. :)
