Tinnitus in left ear decided to use ear drops. 9 days later ear full of wax after pulling out the goo, still ringing ear still blocked :- (syringe?

Syringe may help: They sell cleaning kits for ears in the pharmacies which have large syringes. I always advise to use warm soapy water for these types of cleanings. At the same time, I advise caution when doing anything with the ear canal & if you're not sure of what you are doing or if things are going the right way then you should stop and see your doctor. Much better that than to cause any sort of complication. ...Read more

When I open my mouth to all I hear cracking and mouth tends 2 left, I have lost some hearing with tinnitus in left ear, so what's my problem?

Hearing: A conductive hearing loss (as opposed to a nerve hearing loss) might cause mechanical sounds such as jaw movement to transmit to that ear. The key thing you say is that the symptom is in just one ear. So go see an ent, get a hearing test and see if more treatment or testing needed. ...Read more

Wisdom teeth: Depending on how the wisdom teeth fit together (or not), may alter the way that the lower jaw moves, This is turn will affect the muscles that stabilize the jaw and the amount of space in the jaw joints.

Please help, 2 years muscle spasm in neck and loud tinnitus in left ear, I took alot of medicines and massage, nothing helped me, my age is 24.

Neck spasm: What medicines did you take for the muscle spasm? The only medication I see listed that has some application for muscle spasm is Lorazepam but what was your diagnosis? The tinnitus is likely related to otosclerosis. You have many more "conditions" than just otosclerosis based on the meds you've listed. Have you seen a neurologist? Why are you on antibiotics? Cervical vs. Pharyngeal ms. Spasm? ...Read more
