Several days ago I was wetting my hair under the sink and got some water in my left ear. Waited a couple of days for it to go away, but now I have a stuffed feeling inside of the ear, as well as tinnitus. I also have a whooshing sound when I change my posture, like blood rushing into my ear, and I can't hear as well as I could before this happened.

This isn't the first time I've had this whooshing and tinnitus, but before it was accompanied by real hearing loss (about 90%). However, I was able to reverse this by using vinpocetine and clonazepam. What I have now seems almost exactly the same, but before it was caused by ototoxicity.

Someone on an IRC channel gave me the following advice:

[QUOTE] yeah ok heres the thing
its not water in ur ear then
at least not your outter ear
probably fluid in your middle ear
either that or u got some freaky ****ed up outter ear
n u need to clean that **** cuz its trapping water for more than 2 days
take some ibuprofin, drop some hot(ish) olive oil in ur ear, and like microwave a wet towl or something and stick it on your neck under your ear[/QUOTE]

So far I've taken two 200mg ibuprofens.. one at 9 am EST, and one about 20 minutes (1:10pm EST) ago.

So, what is going on with my ear, and how can I fix it?
