At times, excess ear wax can build up in our ears. If you have a build-up of wax, the following symptoms might present themselves.

According to the Mayo Clinic, some symptoms might include an earache, fullness in the ear, noise or ringing in your ear and decreased hearing.

If you think you have ear wax blockage you should see your doctor. The Mayo Clinic recommends that only doctors should remove the excess ear wax. The hospital warns against trying to remove the wax yourself.
