I have suffered with hard ear wax  in the past. However in the last three weeks i have been in totall agony with ear ache due to hard ear wax. i had been using olive oil to try and soften the wax for two weeks before going back to my GP. I asked him to look and see if he could see any infection or inflammation. He said he did not but the ear was blocked. He suggested that i had the are syrgined. i knew it was too painful, but i felt i would give this a try. I let the nurse syringe my ear and i nearly passed out with pain. From this time i now have a pain in the joint of my jaw (right side) and numbness and tingling of my tounge, my foot tastes bitter. I am considering going to A+E as i have lost faith in my doctor. Does anyone have any idea what my problem could be?
