I'm just looking for any information or advice anyone can give thank you.
I have never had any problems at all with my hearing at all, last December I contracted quite a heavy cold which lasted for a couple of weeks, a symptom of this was heavy congestion. For a few days I was completely blocked up and noticed a whistling noise in my right ear, after a few days when the congestion eased the noise stopped. A couple of months later I felt my right ear totally bunged up, a full feeling with a loss of hearing and sharp stabbing pains, also a slight whistling noise, after a week I visited the doctor who told me I had a big hard ball of wax lodged deep in my ear. He gave me drops to put in and told me to give it a week if there was no improvement to return for possible irrigation. The drops did bring some wax out that was hard dry and black, this over the week became brown and soft, my hearing was better but still muffled and I still had the slight whistle sound. Another look inside my ear and I was told there was a lot of muck in there, I had the irrigation carried out, another look in and it wasn't all clear so I had a further treatment. My ear is now totally clear, the pain and full feeling has totally gone. I noticed the slight whistle sound was still present and mentioned it, I was told as well as this which should improve I could feel slightly off balance which I did. Now everything is fine except for the slight whistle noise, sometimes I think its gone and find myself trying to hear it and there it is. Its not really loud but you know its there. So my question is was this caused by the wax build up? is it a known symptom of wax build up? Do I need further investigation? Or like someone I work with could it be temporary? Ive been told I have no hearing loss. Many thanks for any advice.
