For the past few days I've been feeling like there's water (or something) in one of my ears. I figured since I wear earplugs that it's possible there some wax buildup that's not allowing water to escape easily, but not really obstruct my hearing. So I got one of those Murine earwax removal systems, it's some drops and a rubber squirty thing. My fiancee put the drops in my ears yesterday around noon, and I really didn't notice a difference. Then somewhere around 5-ish out of nowhere my ears start hurting. Big. Then my upper jaw is hurting, and it's seriously getting painful. After around 2 hours of this I decide to use the squirty thing and rinse out my ears. It's gotten much better, but my right ear is still kinda sore. I actually stayed home from work today because of this. I paid attention to the directions on the package- if you're thinking of using that kit, I'd recommend thinking twice before you do.
