I had decreased hearing, a feeling of being in a barrel, and pressure from excessive ear wax.

My excessive ear wax symptoms are often asking someone to repeat what they said in a noisy environment, subdued hearing, like someone has covered your ear, and occasional pain deep in the ear canal.

My reaction to excess ear wax is partial deafness from clogging of the in-the-ear part of my hearing aids. The aids have a replaceable "wax trap" in the opening. Without the aids, I get some clogging in the tubes, and have had it cleared with syringe flushing by a professional.

Since wearing in-the-ear hearing aids, syringing excessive ear wax has been necessary every two or three months due to feed-back causing whistling. Now I am informed that my medical practice will no longer offer syringing; I'm looking for a safe alternative.

My excessive ear wax symptoms are pain, dizziness, headache, and ear humming.
