I went to my primary doctor to get the wax cleaned out of my ears. He used pressured water and some kind of long metal pointed instrument.The doctor ended up badly inflaming my eardrums so now I can barely hear at all. Everything sounds like it's coming thru a tiny transistor radio with a blow speaker. Low frequencies distort and I have have a terrible loud ringing in my head. When I talk everything I say booms loudly inside my head and distorts so I have to whisper. I can't play my bass or listen to music and I can barely hear my TV turned way up. I went to an ear doctor and he said there was nothing he could do so I just will have to wait up to a couple of weeks for my earsdrums to heal. The ear doctor said the other doctor should not have cleaned my ears the way he did. Ear doctors have a special vacumm tool for getting wax out that does not damage the eardrum. So I just wanted to let everyone know about this. Don't let your normal doctor clean the wax from your ears. Go to an ear, nose and throat doctor. Believe me you don't want to go thru what I'm going thru right now.
