    I have not been able to get wax out of my ears for over 15 yes now. When I was 4 yes old I had terrible earaches and my tonsils and atnoids were taken out. Didn't have another earache until the age 33!! My hearing is muffled a lot and my inner ear feels "fuzzyish/tickle" sometimes. Also like a stream of liquid is on its way out and nothing is ever there.?.?... Where is all of my ear wax?

    Can anyone help me, im a 44 yr old lady, 3 months ago i developed an ordinary earache which lasted for 3 weeks and was on antibiotics for that kength of time, then a red spot appeared on my left ear which developed into a painful ulcer, at that point i was hospitalised and put on iv antibiotics for a week then discharged, the pain never eased nor did the ulcer go away and by next morning another one popped up and i was readmitted again.During the course of the next 8 weeks which i spent in hospital that left ear grew several painful ulcers. I was taken to theatre and had biopsies done and had some of the smaller ulcers taken away only for them to grow back as quick and more of them.The oncologist was called in to help deal with my pain as it was unbearable and he put me on a morphine patch, 12 hourly slow release msts and an oral solution of morphine 4 hourly.Then the ulcers in the mouth, jaws and throat started, numerous amounts of them making it unbearable to eat or drink.After a couple of weeks with them being treated with mouthwashes and gels and sprays i realised that each time i managed something to eat my tummy was burning me and so was the food on the way down which i had put down to indigestion.I requested a scope to be done, so at first so as not to be too invasive they did a scope up my nose and down the back of the throat they found an ulcer had got into the septum and ate a hole straight through it.Few days later my left eye started itching and felt grainy when an ulcer popped up on my eyelid.It was at this point that the 8 weeks was up in the hospital that i started asking to go home because no antibiotics or antiviral treatments was stopping what was going on and every swab, blood test, biopsy ct scan and x ray wasnt leading them to any kind of diagnosis, I was just being kept there on morphine for my pain.I came home 2 weeks ago today, my right ear has 4 nasty ulcers in it, my scalp has at least 20 open sores, both the backs of my ears are raw high rigged and weepin,the ulcers in both ears are oozing green pus out of them constantly,the skin is coming away from all my finger nails and their oozing pus aswell, there are sores down my cheeks, neck and face . They tell me to watch out for my toe nails and my genital area which thankfully is free of ulcers so far. They are testing me now for behcets syndrome even though its not presenting itself like iit does in the text books. To date all tests are inconclusive,they dont seem to be linking it to my arthritis which is also kicking up regardless of the morphine or my vertigo or my asthma. My life has come to a complete halt over the past 3 months and ive been written off work for at least a year.My husband and grown up teenage kids have been a tower of strength to me, particurlarly my husband who like everyone has his own worries but is always there to pull me out of the dark hole i feel im in with no diagnosis and without that no treatment for this disease.Has anyone with behcets got symptoms like mine or got my symptoms and have a name for their disease or syndrome. My heart goes out to you all on this site, you know when you have pain yourself its hard to feel someone elses pain.My sincerest thanks to all who take the time fo read this or to answer it

    Hi Margaret I have suffered from Behcets for the past 20 years. For the mouth I have a steroid mouth wash and for my ears I spray the brown steroid in hailer in them, for skin lesions (genitals and under finger nails etc) I use a steroid cream. Mine started with genital ulcers and progressed to eyes, ears and mouth. Although Behcets (Silk Route Disease) is rare in this country there are excellent support networks. The Behcets Society is wonderful. Behcets is a Rheumatology condition. Prof. Haskard at Hammersmith Hospital is one of the top in his field with regards to Behcets. Last year I was rushed to hospital with 2 DVT’s in my right leg and a clot in my brain. Behcets normally appears in your late 20’s. As Behcets is in the immune system it is hard to detect in blood tests. I have been unable to travel to work for the past 12 months and have to take oral steroids; unfortunately the treatment is also hard to cope with. The Rheumatology team at King’s College Hospital has been absolutely fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. Once they can confirm what you are definitely suffering from and start the correct treatment, then for the majority of the time, life will be normal. Just make sure that you are being looked after with regular checks. Rest when you need to and try and exercise when you can. I wish you well, you are not alone. Even though I have had the hardest 12 months of my life, I can tell you it is not bleak. Don’t give up, stay strong. I will be thinking of you.

    Hi Margaret, I was diagnosed in 2001 with behcets, aged 36. I saw a dermatologist.I had a positive skin biopsy. Basically they inject a little saline water under your skin, leave it for 24 hours, then do a biopsy. Mine went bad/ulcerated. It only happens if you have Behcets. However, not every behcets sufferer will get a positive test, so its not definitive. Its very frustrating I know and you feel helpless at times. The problem is no behcet sufferer has exactly the same symptoms, and as its rare, it must be difficult for the doctors. I feel for you. I have had ulcers in various places mouth, throat, tongue, ears, lips, genital, eyelid etc since 1999, and I still have them now. What I can tell you is that I have learned to live with them, and I guess your body becomes more tolerant, I don't feel as much pain as I used to 10 years ago. Also I have spells when I feel almost normal! I see specialists on a regular basis, and they deal with whatever problem I am presenting at that time. Difflam oral rinse is very good for mouth and throat pain, it numbs it, I use it before I eat. Also betnesol tablets as a mouthwash. Try not to get too depressed, it makes your pain all the more painful! Brown steroid inhalers are excellent for genital ulcers. Life isn't easy, but I always think there is someone worse than me, so I try to stay positive. Its good you have support. You could try contacting the Behcets Syndrome Society for advice? I did when I was first diagnosed. I wish you good health and happiness. You are not alone.

    I've had the same problem as you expect it hurts a lot when I turn my head to my left and sleeping, hurts when I swallow and having trouble breathing, will be going to the doctor to see if they can tell me what's wrong, I'll let you know.. not sure where your from but some places have free clinics you could go to or the hospital is your best bet, they have to see you regardless if you have insurance or not...

    Well what did it end up being

    I suddenly had a high pitch ringing after an earache. I felt like a lot of pressure was in right my ear and my right ear became heavy. After I checked on the internet and saw that the tinnitus may be permanent, I went to the doctor and he gave me ear drops as I had an inflammation and said the tinnitus should go away after a week. After looking online again, I started crying because I'm still convinced that this continuous noise will last the rest of my life....

    I have had a problem with excessive earwax for a number of years and having had them syringed, used cerumol and earex on my gp's instruction, I've found that hopi candles are by far the best and most successful option for me. I get earache when my ear becomes bunged with wax and once I used hopi candles the ache goes away along with the excess wax. They are cheap and you can buy them in most health Stores.

    Dawn, ask for a prescription of RETAPAMULIN CREAM from your GP , stings at first but leave it on, it's working.It is awesome. Works very quickly. Start taking Acidophilus regularly, can get this from health food/Hollant and Barrett.

    I'm 15 and worried about my hearing. I sometimes get headaches and VERY mild earache, and I think it's because I listen to my music too loud. I listen nearly everyday on my ipod because I love music, but I love it loud, I hate it turned down. My hearing suffers quite alot and i'm scared i'll go deaf, please help!

    Ive had it since 17th too im on antibiotics 2 four times a day penicillin vk its now the 26th and my right tonsil is so sore it actually feels like I have something stuck in it ( tonsil stone I think) I cant get it out salt water aint doing anything ive taken 26 painkillers in 5 days no help, I get the sweats too I wake up to find im drenched all over sheets wet headaches sore eyes heavy head neck pain earache and a cold. I had it in Steptember and December and my doctor still wont take my tonsils out. Hope this has helped you. Im 23 and suffered with this since I was 10 :(

    Hi, I just noticed you put that you were taking paracetamol and co-codamol? .. you really shouldnt take those together as the high dose of paracetamol could potentially lead to liver failure... take Ibuprofren.instead, that can go safely alongside paracetamol :-) .. I am in the 6th horrrendous dayof tonsillitis myself, white spots and ulcers galore, but drs keep saying its viral... back tomorrow as am.now getting nosebleeds and earache...awful. I was prescribed something yesterday though, its called 'Difflam' spray, its very good and really does help to numb the throat and ease the pain. Hope you feel better soon, but please be careful wiyh tjr meds xxx

    Hi.. I have the exact same symptoms as you.. I have a sore neck to the left of my adams apple, can feel a lump when i swallow, but cannot feel a lump from the outside. I have earache and slight upper back pain. I have had chest xray, neck xray, CT Scan, all clear.... The only problem they saw was i have abnormal nasal... I have had these symptoms for going on for 5 months now, i am petrified.... It is ok when i eat food, and perfect whilst asleep. When i wake up, i can feel it like someone is blowing a balloon up in my throat. I have put slight weight on, and am constipated quite often even though i eat lots of fruit everyday. I am wondering if its my Thyroid, but think any problem there might have shown up on the CT scan. I am on painkillers everyday, some days worse than others. Much more of this and i am going to have to ask for a Ultrasound scan. If you get any results can you let me know and vice versa...... Kind regards. Jayne.

    I've been using cocaine daily for about a year now but although I'd love to stop, I can't! My nose is always blocked & sore. Often my front teeth hurt too, like nerves are showing & my eye Hurts & waters on the side of the most painful nostril. It feels like acid or something burning the inside of my Nostril. Ive tried flushing daily with saline water & putting ulcer stuff in it, to try to numb it, but nothing stops the burning Pain. Is this my septum burning away? Apart from stopping cocaine, what can I do to ease the pain & breath normally? Also have nasal polyps, so not sure if this Is making it worse? What happens before your septum disintegrates or a hole is made? Are there any symptoms or warning signs? Please help if u can - it's agony! So debilitating sometimes, when it's So painful/burning, I get bad headaches due to pain in my nose! Pain in & behind eye & streaming nose & even earache on that side. Is that the pain of a deviated septum? If anyone has experienced this or can help with advice on relieving pain - when stopping cocaine isn't working. So have to keep using it.

    I was told by my ENT that this was from.cocaine usage when.I was in.high school but I told her I used qtips and vaseline and felt a pop in my nasal passage now I have a whole in my septum. I have a sinus infection and its very severe two months of heavy antibiotics for the next three months then discussion of surgery Get off the cocaine because you can die with this hole in your septum if it goes untreated Please take care of yourself quickly don't.let it go

    I too get a whole variety of symptoms when i suffer from tonsillitis so you're not alone, first things first the back pain is usually attributed to dehydration. With a sore throat we're reluctant to cause any more pain so we tend to eat and drink less. It is important you keep hydrated even just sips of water every 10 minutes will make a huge difference i promise. (personal fave:hot water and lemon and honey - full of vitamins you need to boost your immunity). Your other aches are usually a sign that your body is exhausted and you don't have enough energy to keep yourself going, one bout of tonsillitis can riddle your whole body and i have sometimes felt like i was dying when the pain got so bad. Saddle yourself up with plenty of painkillers (codeine will knock you out and allow you to get some all important sleep which is essential tallow the body to recover), keep a record of what you've taken and when - I do this one: because i tend to be a bit drowsy/forgetful when I'm poorly and two: if you end up having to go see your gp/hospital you can tell them how much you have taken and show them that you are still in unbelievable amounts of pain (this should speed things up for treatment). I would keep an eye on your symptoms - swollen tonsils, glands, earache, white spots - are all clear indicators of tonsillitis, if you're not presenting any of these and just a sore throat i recommend going back to your gp for another assessment as it may be something else. Hope you're feeling better now though and you're probably a picture of health now but its always handy for the future! best wishes x
