    I've been deaf in my left ear since yesterday.

    This past week I've noticed my left ear getting clogged more day by day. Everyday I wake up with my ear blocked from sleeping on it but I'd just put the tip of my finger in my ear and sort of pop it out and It would clear up and I'd be able to hear again and I'd just go about my day like normal, but as of today and yesterday its just been completely blocked up with almost no hope.

    When I pull down and hold on my ear lobe sometimes or even when I drag my finger down my cheek/jaw my hearing goes back to normal, and when I let go of my ear lobe everything slowly goes fuzzy and closes again. every few hours my ear just seems to completely 'shut' on it's own even while I'm just sitting here pulling on my ear lobe and trying to unpop it nothing works. It's completely blocked atm

    I've gotten in this weird habit of grinding my jaw forward over and over and I feel a little bit of pressure in the corner of my jaw right underneath my ear when I do it almost like my jaw is pushing on my ear canal and maybe that's causing the blockage.

    I have had extreme ear wax build up in the past few years in both of my ears multiple times. but this is by my most annoying experience yet as i've been almost completey deaf in my left ear for 48+ hours now

    idk what to do I put ear drops in yesterday But that made it worse i think. no idea why these past few years I'm having a bunch of ear problems

    btw i was taking prednisone for my ulcerative colitis flare ups. but ive been off of it for 2 weeks now. i read that steroids can effect your ears, not sure if that the problem here

    Try hydrogen peroxide in your ear then put cotton in and tilt the head. When the fizzing stops the wax softens. Do it several times a day. It. Should help but if not _ no harm
