Right ear has felt blocked for quite some time. My hearing is below par.
Went to a clinic for microsuction. Small amount of wax in ear but not blocked. Wax removed. Left ear clear.
Practitioner suggest saline nasal wash which I’ve done twice a day for two weeks.
My right ear “feels” totally blocked still.
Any comments/advice please?

Yes, I have a comment.
Unilateral deafness ( deafness in one ear) should be seen by an ENT specialist as it is not clear from your posts if this is a middle ear or a nerve deafness and this can only be established by a Specialist.
Your treatment and further management will depend upon this differentiation.

Thank you Sqad. I see my GP on Monday.
Saline nasal washes for deafness, does it help ?
anne...depends.
If it is a middle ear problem secondary to sinus disease, then it may well help.
Problem is........we don't know whether this is a middle ear problem or an inner ear (nerve) problem.

Not in my case Anne. I think the theory was to try and equal the pressure in the Eustation Tube via the sinuses.
