Hi @James GI,
If you get this message please can you send me a PM. I have a few things to ask you regarding your experience with microsuction...the same thing happened to me only in both ears. Thank you, Blue
Thanks for getting back to me. I have tinnitus, but have only had it for a few weeks after 2 months of hearing loss, and there is a possibility this has simply been caused by ear wax impaction. However I can well believe the mechanical methods for earwax impaction can worse tinnitus or cause what might have been a temporary pheonemenon to become chronic. Do you still have tinnitus now Ysamel? If so what caused yours? Did it improve long term following ear wax removal?
Hello! Yes i went through with it. James was actually right, the microsuction can be incredible loud but my doctor knew that so when it got to a part that it was extremely loud, she manually took it off (Although note that be sure to stress that you're scared of the procedure)After the procedure was scary too because it was so tender, everything was loud and I developed a small high pitched tinnitus for like a day or two. Other that that everything's normal now. That being said, I advise you to not do the procedure if you have tinnitus already as it most likely will worsen it. I did the procedure at clear ear clinic if that helps.
Hello James G and Ysmael. I was going to get microsuctioning until I read the negative accounts of it online, and another paper similar to the one you link to, James, saying it can cause hearing loss. Ysmael did you go ahead with the procedure? James, how are you now, any improvement in the tinnitus at least? James do you know of anywhere in the UK where impacted wax can be removed with manual tools given both microsuction and ear syringing present risks of worsening tinnitus?
