Wax, Infection , Tinnitus

From last 5 years i usually get my ear full of wax (every 6-7 monyhs) because of which i use to face problem in hearing and every time after visiting the ENT Dr and getting the cleaning done it used to be fine. Lat month i had the same problem but after the wax was removed i am hearing a constant beep sound which i doubt is tinnitus . What could be the cause and which specialist should i visit to for further examination?

dear either this is due to wax remained in the ear after cleaning or secondly you need to get your ears checked for any trauma due to some loud noises ,so get audiometry done first on urgent basis
Next Steps
avoid loud noise and ear phones

Return to your ENT doctor and let him re-examine your ears. If your ear drum is intact, you may need to undergo a Pure Tone Audiometry and Impedance Audiometry for your doctor to reach a diagnosis.

Your doctor deserves one chance to redeem himself after helping you all these years.
