Okay so this is a terrifying thing, being a musician.
For about a week now my ear has been clogged (my left ear), I am a heavy wax producer so this has happened before. However, after cleaning out my ear (at this point I know how - soften with peroxide and use a syringe of warm water to blast out wax), it still sounds clogged. What's worse, I discovered while listening to some music and pulling one earbud out slightly before the other. A heard something very weird for that split second, and I discovered my left ear is very close to a half step flat of my right ear.
How sure am I, you ask? Extremely sure. As a former music major I am pretty good at identifying pitches, and I tested thoroughly. Single notes, chords, used one headphone, both, either, switched the same earbud into each ear, the whole shebang. I am without doubt that (for some reason) I am hearing both more quietly and at a different pitch out of my left ear. I don't know if this is because it is still clogged up, or because of some other reason I don't want to think of.
I will see a doctor if this persists for another week or so. Until then, anyone who has any clue about how hearing and ears work, put my mind at ease or ready me for perhaps the most depressing news of my life. Whats the deal?
