What Symptoms May I Have?

Blocked Ear

Most people get a “blocked up” sensation or a feeling of “fullness”. This is caused by the wax acting like a plug in your ear.  Other symptoms of wax can be:

  • A feeling of fullness or dullness
  • Temporary hearing loss
  • Internal sounds (when you chew or breath your own voice seeming to be loud in your head)
  • Tinnitus a ringing in the ears.
  • Earache (otalgia)
  • Very itchy or irritated ear canal
  • If you wear hearing aids constant whistling from your aid.
  • You may feel light-headed (vertigo) this is an area under investigation.
  • A tickly cough this can be caused by the wax build up putting pressure on or stimulating the facial nerve inside the middle ear.
