Ear injury after cleaning out

From Anna,

Hi all, Back in May my ears were stopped up with wax in them. Twice before I went & had them cleaned out I felt like there was water in my ear. One time I put my finger in there & got out wet. It didn't smell like ear wax it was just wet. Then I went & had my ears cleaned on May 12th. The nurse uses a water pick thing. She put it in my ear and turned it on. I told her it hurt. She's cleaned my ears out several times before. After she took it out I still couldn't hear good. She used a thing with a hook to get the wax out of my ears after that. Still noticed I wasn't hearing as well as I used to. Went home to see what would happen. My ear started to hurt so I called the Dr. back & went in and told him the ear hurt and it felt like there was water in it so he put me on some nose spray for a month and said if that didn't help to call him & he would send me to an ENT. Spray didn't help so I went to an ENT. Before I went to him I had stopped the Nose Spray and my ear really started to hurt again. It also started to burn some and ring some. And I still couldn't hear out of it good. I could hear some but not well. I told him when I went that I wondered if my ear drum was busted or if I had water behind the ear. He checked for both and said the ear drum wasn't busted & there was no water behind my ear. I mentioned it hurt and about the burning. He had no reaction. He just the nose spray wouldn't hurt me. He had the personality of a wall. This morning I woke up & my cheek on that side hurt a little. I can also hear myself chew on that side. Don't know to do now. I'm afraid I won't get my hearing back. Anyone here have a similar experience? What happened with your hearing if you did? I can hear the dial tone on a phone. So I can hear some. Just not as good as it should be. Doesn't it sound like my hearing could be permantely messed up? Can also hear myself chew

Symptoms Ear:

loss of hearing
feels full or like water is it
can hear myself chew
cheek hurts a little

Your friend,
