    That's a classic.. the one I linked was mild. Put ear wax in the YouTube search bar won't believe what you find.

    Actually Q tips are often part of the problem. They push wax further in where the natural ear self-cleaning mechanisms do not work and they add cotton fibers to the mix. ENTs do not sanction the use of Q tips or cotton buds of any kind.

    I can only imagine that pushing an ear mold and leaving it in for 18 hours a day would be similar to a Q tip minus the cotton.

    I know that. I also know (from my own doctor) that the regular and proper use of Q-Tips can, for a good number of people, prevent the type of wax build up seen in the YouTube videos. (n.b. I did not say all people) They don't have to be shoved down the center of the ear canal packing wax like stuffing a wad down the barrel of a muzzle loader. Maybe instead of Q-Tip they should be labeled IQ-Tip 100+

    Got to wonder how long it's been since those folks have been to a Doc even a GP will check your ears and no way they would have missed any of those. Wonder if the ENTs yelled can you hear me now after they dug those out.

    , You missed the best one Jakey. There was one with such a mass and a fly that had laid eggs.

    If you would read all the post you would have noticed that I'm aware of it but choose not to link it because of the tender nature of this forum.

    Well, by the time I got to the doctor, I already got a diagnosis. Evidently, that athletic endeavor triggered a fibromyalgia flare. Fullness in the ears/ eustachian tube dysfunction is yet another part of the constellation of fibro symptoms. Now I am wondering about the overlap between fibro and Meniere's. I notice a small subset of that overlap on a fibro forum. Many of the same triggers.
