Has anyone had impacted earwax before? I can't hear anything and it always happens so randomly.

Has anyone had impacted earwax before? I can't hear anything and it always happens so randomly. Are there any methods to prevent this from happening in the future?

    Take a bath at least 4 times a week and completely submerge your head 3 times for at least 30 seconds each time. You want to make sure water gets in your ears. I used to only take showers and would always get buildup. Been taking only baths for the last 8 years and haven't had to get my ears cleaned out once. Also, and this could be anything, but I noticed my tinnitus and hearing has gotten better over the years.

    yeah when i was a teen and i was stucking qtips in my brain bc it felt funny, a nurse just shot pressured water in my ear and the blockage came out easily.
    but then i discovered using the shower head to blast your eardrum feels just as good and cleans everything, my hearing is perfect btw.
    i do that nuch more gently now when i shower and i use that chinese metal spiraly qtip thingy after, doesn't compact earwax at all.

    Ear canal skin grows in a spiral pattern, pushing things out. Dirt outside makes it easier for wax to build up inside, clean your ears well every day, and after showering, drape some TP over your pinky and do the jam-n-twist until its clear.
    No q-tip inserting.
    Water blasting with a showerhead or syringe works for clearing a blockage, but don't get used to doing it, even if you're being safe and using sterile saline, you're gambling for an ear infection.

    yeah I had one randomly once and after 24 hours I was going to actually kill myself, so i decided to just jam a piece of wire in there and see if i destroy my ear or not first. It got the clog open without damaging my ear so whatever.
    I took a single wire from a cat5 cable, folded it over on itself to form a tight loop (keeping insulation) and smashed it in there till it stopped. Once I could feel/hear a small opening in the blockage, I flushed the ear with hydrogen peroxide multiple times to get the rest of the blockage out.

    another time a year later, same ear, I pulled out a giant cylinder chunk of ear wax, like 14mm long and ear canal width. I found it because I noticed a bit of pain in my ear, but didnt really notice any hearing loss surprisingly.

    I am pretty sure it is caused by hair in the ear canal caching the wax and letting it build up. for whatever reason I have more hair in my right ear and less in my left.
    If this is a continuing problem for you, I recommend every 3-6 months or as needed, clean your inner ear canal. you can do this in two ways. A rather crude way I do it is with a sim card eject tool, it is the perfect shape to go in and scrape out wax, while not being long enough to reach the ear drum.
    a better method is to flush your ears fully with hydrogen peroxide. basically lay on your side and fill the ear canal up, wait till the fizzing stops, then hold a paper towel to your ear and roll over to drain it. do each side till the fizzing stops and the paper towel no longer gets discoloured, then go shower. Takes way more effort and over-cleans your ear, so your hearing sensitivity is way high for a couple days and you risk hearing damage, thats why I just scrape it out instead

    why do our ears naturally clog and frick themselves up? surely ancient humans weren't able to clean them as effectively as we can now with nothing but their dirt and shit covered hands, did they just go deaf?

      i was thinking this actually. If I was ever in a survival situation and had no access to resources I'd be immediately disadvantaged after a few months

    lay on your side and fill your ears with peroxyde for 10 minutes. Repeat on the other side. Done.

    mine used to clog and I'd have to get them cleaned at the doctor but ever since I started sleeping with ear plugs they no longer clog. when I first started using the ear plugs I would pull them out in the morning and find pieces of earwax stuck to them, so I think the plugs pull out whatever excess wax is in there and keep them clean

    Use these.
    Also, probably drink more water.

    I get it pretty often. It happens due to the angle of your eustachian tubes. Not much to be done about it except wearing ear buds a loot makes it worse cor obvious reasons. Get an ear wax removal kit with mineral oil and a big water bulb and follow the instructions. Do that every month or so. Also qtip your ears once a week after a shower. Not too deep but if youre a moron that actually injures yourself with a qtip you kinda deserve it

    law on your side OP and pour a bottle cap sized amount of hydrogen peroxide into your ear and hang out for about 5-10 minutes. should help a little bit, otherwise go to an ear dr and they will suck it all out for you

    I had a weird crackling sound in my right ear for a while especially when doing pullups. then one day that ear felt a bit itchy and I picked out a massive piece of black ear wax. Looked like an ear plug.

    You can clear it with warm water in a special syringe (no needle). Works every time.

    As for why it happens, pretty sure it's genetic.

    Hitting the sauna/steam room seems to keep my earwax at bay. Also having a high body temp whilst having earphones in seems to do the same. Looks like the high temps degrade it.
