    Deaf after having ear syringed

    I had my ear syringed this morning due to a build up of wax.
    Now my ear keeps popping and my hearing in my ear is reduced.
    Nurse said I still had wax left , but my hearing was ok before the syringing.
    Worried my ear has been permanently damaged. I fee like I’ve been on a flight , my ear also feels very full.
    Has anyone had this and did it get better, really worried as usual !

    Water stuck in your ear? Tilt your head with ‘deaf’ ear facing down and massage your Tragus (the tough flap bit in front of your ear hole). Basically massage it against your ear hole. This used to help me get water out after swimming.

    Still have reduced hearing and popping after having ear syringed.
    Spoke to pharmacist who said it was probably water and wax. Just want it to clear , worried that it won't. Have GPS appointment on Monday as want to stop anti depressents. Also have hospital appointment for left sided pain that I've had on and off for nearly a year.
    My anxiety is not good at the moment.

    I've had something similar. Sounds stupid but my instinct was to jump up and down, and that somehow dislodged the water / blockage! Was the most satisfying feeling afterward. Your hearing will be fine don't worry x

    No joke my dad had his done and he was actually deaf for like a week. Couldn't hear a thing that's how bad! It'll clear up, honestly don't worry. I would be panicked too but from an outside perspective it really will just clear up x
