Please help me i\'ve gone deaf in one ear!
 
Ok its about 4am here. Several hours ago I got up from lying on my couch and i couldnt hear anything in one of my ears. I have quite long hair which covers my ears so I must just not have noticed while i was lying down. After jamming my finger in there a bit, there was a bit of dried blood in it.

I'm kind of panicking but I dont want to wake anyone in the middle of the night if its just some water or something, so what better place to come than OOT.

So anyone know about this sort of thing? I'm only 22 yrs old and never had anything like this before (apart from for a few minutes sometimes if water in ear)!

Maybe this wasn't such a smart move.

could be earwax -

go to the drugstore and buy an earwax removal kit - if that don't work - urgent care -

Shove a Q-tip in there.

While this might not do anything, it would be really cool to pull a Q-tip out of your ear covered in blood.

Hope you have insurance,

if there was no dried blood i would say that it's probably just impacted earwax. get some eardrops and use them.

but because of there being dried blood in your ear....i would get it checked out very soon.

I've been deaf in one ear my entire life, it isn't so bad, you'll get used to it.

i'm not completely deaf in it i dont think (its hard to tell tho). It feels like it is full of something. There wasnt a load of blood, just a small amount mixed with what looks like wax.

I have had a bath tonight for the first time in probably a few months (I only have a shower in my flat, tonight i'm staying at my parent house). Could this be the problem. I cant really get to the hospital or doctor till the morning.
