    Ever since I was like 14 i have been aware of some discomfort/pain i get when listening to music with earphones.. nevertheless i listened to music anyway and now i have constant ringing and also pain when i listen to alot of music sometimes... im 19 now.

    I know i should stop listening to music so much now, so thats what im going to do. Just wondering has anybody seen a doctor for this? Does wax have anything to do with it?

    1. Listening to loud music, has the ability to make small ruptures to the ear drum. This causes a lot of discomfort and will cause ringing

    2. Yes...ear wax has a LOT to do with ringing. Sometimes it builds up in the hard to get to places of the ear. Instead of going and having them syringed, put a couple of drops of olive oil into the ear a few times a week. This will soften the structure of the wax and will wil ru out of its own accord.

    3. If you are worried, see a GP. I know how discomforting it can be as I ruptured my whole ear drum (not by music...it was burst with a cotton bud) and only half has grown back...it has been over a year!

    Best Regards,

    I'm hard of hearing(deaf basically) and have hearing aids, it's caused by summat do with the hairs in my ears.

    But i also ruptured one of my ear drums, make sure that you do NOT do that :|

    It's possible you have tinnitus as well, I have a mild form of it, whilst having severe hearing loss.

    My god my ears are crap
