Okay, I’m going to paint an ugly picture in your mind. Well, it’s not that bad, but it’s for effect. Regardless, it led to my smart earwax removal technique.
I had really clogged up ears, so much so that it lessened my hearing. My perception had decreased, and heck, I don’t think my balance was all that great either.
But I most certainly didn’t want to stick cotton swabs in my ear. Watching a couple of YouTube videos of things gone wrong will do this to you. It doesn’t end well when you have a q-tip lodged in your ear, surprisingly.
But I figured this isn’t an emergency. I don’t want to take up my doctor’s precious time. Or the patients that really need the appointment. I could be in a lot of worst situations than this!
But I was LAZY about the problem. I didn’t want to go to the doctors. So foolishly, my clogged ears went untreated for months. It was a mistake I was never going to make again.
The Uh-oh moment
So what happens?
Well, I had a nasty earache that caused a perforated eardrum when I was 17. I thought, okay, now might be a good time to go see the doc.
Yet when I went the next day, he couldn’t actually see inside my ear canal. . . .
It was so clogged with wax!
Now he did prescribe me some good painkillers, thank god. But he couldn’t determine if there was a perforation or any permanent damage to my eardrum. I was prescribed eardrops to allow the wax to ooze out. Then he could have a proper examination.
My problems were undiagnosed, for now. We had to reschedule for 10 or so days later. By that time the wax had cleared.
It was laziness on my part. I didn’t take control all those months ago to remove the problematic earwax. Now, would that have prevented the earache in the first place?
Maybe, but I can’t say for certain. What I do know is the process could have been a lot simpler. If I had just taken care of the earwax problem initially. The doctor’s job would have been easier, and we would only have needed one consultation.
