My ears seem to be clogged with wax when I wake up in the morning. When I go to be my ears are fine, when I wake up in the morning my ears are clogged with wax; they don't hurt as I wake up, I am not sure but this might be related to eating jalapenos, but

Wax: Wax would not clear on its own and get bad agin in the morning. It may be that your eustachian tubes that clear the pressure in your ears are getting swollen at night. This can ge due to higher venous pressure from lying down or maybe an allergy to something in your bedroom. Try sleeping with your head elevated. Try an over the counter allergy medicine, as long as you do not have a llergy to them. Loud music can cause the feeling of ear plugging and also ringing in the ears. This can also resolve 24-48 hours afterwards, but can later add up to a permanant hearing loss. ...Read more

Be seen: Most likely, as you suspected, you have ear wax plugging your ear canal. H2o2 has been used by folks to dissolve it but that is a harsh chemical that can damage skin, especially if used full strength. Safer ways exist to clean out an ear. Also, other things can cause that problem that might be in a different part of the ear, so the best approach is to have someone who knows what they are doing loo. ...Read more
