In brief: As long as

theres no change in hearing or severe pain I think you're OK to wait and see if it goes away.
It's not uncommon to have a little discomfort after earwax disimpaction. In the meantime keep the headphones out of your ears or use the "over the ear" type of headphones. And remember- no Qtips!
