    In my left ear! Bought my first pair of decent head phones last week...

    And fell asleep listening to one of Teddy's mixes (not blaming you in any way mate;)). Must have rolled onto my side and now that ear's completely blocked. Brool I know but does any one have any ideas on how to unblock it? Ear drops are a load of balls and someone suggested ear candles but I think they were having me on. I'm don't want to google it coz I always end up reading horror stories about whatever ailment I've looked up...




    All this stuff on here about ear plugs but no one mentions the fact that a pair of bass heavy headphones can make you deaf!

    I can't believe I'm seriously thinking about buying an ear syringe. It's that or wait a week to see the nurse. This is shit.

    Mate... ear candles work.... I use them quite alot... just make sure you get someone to help you.. ie a gf.. or if your stuck for one of them get your mum on the case... put your head on their lap... get them to put the ear candle in and light it and keep and eye on it... doing it yourself can be a bit risky.

    I'd like to say that syringe would work and it's worth a try but I don't see how intense music overnight would lead to an extensive ear wax build up. Your best bet is to go to the doctor, the average one doesn't know fuck all about hearing/won't be able to give you a hearing test on-site but at least he can confirm if it's a wax issue and treat it.

    if it was me I'd have gone to A&E straight away, not booked a GP appointment or bought some fancy candles.

    Go to your GP and get your ears syringed, its free, painless, takes 10 mins and afterwards EVERYTHING sounds SO clear. Its amazing.

    dont try syringing your own ears, jesus! goto your GP for a checkup and get an appointment with the nurse to have it done safley

    that said, its not likley that your ear filled up with wax over night, might be another issue, either way u need ur gp to check it

    had a couple of times when I felt one ear was blocked up, not recently mind.

    Consulted my GP after a week, told to get ear drops...cleared it up in a jiffy.
    He told me that consistent listening to loud music shifts the wax around the ear, potentially making it uncomfortable.

    These were what I used, recommended.
