#741 When a big chunk of ear wax randomly falls out of your ear

tumbling out of head mountainSure, it’s a little bit extremely disgusting, but the gross out factor pales in comparison to the massive release you feel when a waxy boulder comes tumbling out of a cave on the side of Head Mountain. Remember: there’s nothing to be embarrassed about because this is just The Magic of the Human Body. Yes, like a loyal employee punching out after a hard day on the line, your earwax heads home with its lunchbox in hand after drowning dust and dirt on a double shift in your ear canal. The gig’s not easy and it doesn’t pay well, so when Waxy Brown’s finished his business, you know it’s because he’s done as much as he can.

AWESOME!

  1. This sometimes happens. I can hear again! My ears get clogged a lot.

    • Bingo

      When my elder daughter was 13, one evening she came cried and said that her ears ache and that she has lost her hearing for couple of days . I used a pen like flash light to check and found a big chunk of ear wax almost fully stuffed her both ear canals. I picked them out and she was so relieved and smiled her tears away immediately. Ever since then my wife and I became more cautious and will check and pick our both daughters ears once every 3 to 4 months and it has become a thing we all like very much as first it put us so close to each other and it’s like playing the “Doctor and Patient” game again while they were small kids except now is “real”. After the ear-picking we always will give them a big kiss on their ears and told them “Now you don’t have any excuse to say you didn’t (or couldn’t) hear what I said to you.” My elder girl is over 35 now and she still remembers those moments and I think it’s really AWESOME!

      In China I have taken some colleagues of mine from the States to sauna (I live in Taipei) and one of the services the manicurists can provide is “ear-wax picking”. Not all of my colleagues would dare to try it. For those who are willing to, after the picking which is already very relaxing, a thin bamboo stick with a white furry ball at the end will be used to clean the remaining tiny scraps. The “rolling out” movement of the furry ball makes one feel so good that a ew of them commented that it is “even better than sex”. I think they really feel it’s AWESOME too!

      • John

        Wow your really wierd. You feel closer because you pick each others ear wax.WOW

        • Deladrin

          I don’t think he meant that they feel closer because of WHAT the activity IS….he meant they all found something, one small thing that they share as a family “moment”. And these days when both parents work, these “small things” are hard to come by naturally! It makes their children feel good (physically because even you have to admit that when you clean your ears and actually have something on the end of that q-tip, and keep going until the q-tips come back out as white as when they went in, its a small sort of victory. Like taking a cool shower after a sweaty and dirty workout. Am I right?) Anyway, point is…..I think it feels good to ANY parent when they have done something that makes the child feel better about themselves. And say his daughter felt that her ears were “yucky”…and he and his wife made them feel clean. So they made it a family affair…..with EVERYONE involved…all feeling like they are helping the others. And sir, there is NOTHING…and I mean NOTHING “weird” about that! You sir, are also obviously NOT a parent. Because as a Mom to two boys, I can tell you that I even feel a small satisfaction in helping my boys clean their noses out (obcviously not in the real literal sense, but by merely assisting by holding the tissue while they do most of the work) or even clipping my boys fingernails after they see me clipping/filing my own…so in a sense, that ALSO becomes a “family affair” and I ask you, does that make us “weird” as well? No, I hope as a parent someday (because you arent one now, or you wouldve underSTOOD what he was conveying) that also find these small moments and learn how to appreciate them for what they are, now matter how “weird” the activity may actually be…(and how knows…maybe your sweet little princess will come to YOU, her Daddy…aka her “knight in shining armor who ALWAYS helps her with ANYthing she can’t do herself, and ask YOU to help HER get the “yuckies” out of her ear as well….and maybe the two of you will make it a routine every few months….and you will remember responding so rudely to this post, at a time when you simply misunderstood what this Daddy was considering “quality time” with his family…..by calling him and ultimately THEM “weird”, and realize…that a good parent always knows how to steal ANY moment they can with their family as a UNIT and consider it family time, no matter how strange the actual activity is….no matter how weird….because it makes his precious daughters feel better about themselves.

          • Joe Cool

            …But seriously, guys, that family earwax thing is really weird.

          • WS

            Not really, it sort of an intimate thing.
            I mean you wouldn’t let anyone stick a bamboo shaft into your ear and swirl it around it around like a mad man.

            It requires a sense of trust. Japanese culture actually seems to prize the whole wife cleaning the ears of the husband or something like that…

            Not saying that this a substitute for family outings and eating dinner together but well…moments between family members are still family moments…no matter how bad the experience.

            It’s the reason why people go to family reunions they know will be torturous…

  2. joobers

    not gonna lie, this is my most favorite thing in the world.

  3. poopface

    yeah! when I hear it coming, I put my hand out to catch it. the feeling is incredible.

    • it sure is. i love it too. a few weeks ago i was bending down to get laundry and it felt like some water was pushing out of my ear so i tipped my head and this huge chunk of wax came tumbling out. i loved the feeling and i always wish for it to happen daily.

  4. Max

    This also sometimes happens to me, and the feeling is great! It’s like I can hear a thousand times better. Only problem is I’d want a big chunk of earwax to fall out of my other ear too!

  5. jesselun

    No, the MAGIC is getting a doctor to clean your ears. In goes the turkey baster, out comes a small brain

    • Freddo

      First, I’m agreeing with all the people below – pretty gross stuff.

      But when things don’t fall out on there own, things can get pretty packed up in there, and you need to call in the experts. I once watched my wife (a doctor) do this to one of our friends (with the mini-turkey baster and all), and the amount of dark brown wax that came streaming out of his ear made me dry heave.

  6. Ago

    Maybe the sickest thing I’ve ever heard. Ha ha!

  7. jay

    Ewww! Clean your ears!

  8. This one seemed more disgusting than awesome, I ain’t gonna lie.

  9. Jessica

    I’ve never had this happen!! Am I the only one? Now I want it to happen….

    • Maryse

      Never had this happen to me either, and I have no problems with my ears at all.

    • Juli

      It has never happened to me either.
      But it always happens for my 17 year
      old son. Should i get my ears cleaned…
      and from which type of doctor?

      • notyourbusiness

        A regular MD can do it in the office. Takes five minutes and it’s painless. I’d rather go to my doc to get my ears cleaned than have it done at a nail salon in Japan. The saying goes, “If it’s smaller than your elbow, don’t stick it in your ear.” Q-Tips were never intended to clean inside the ears due to risk of puncturing the eardrum.

    • mario

      lmfaoo me too

    • will

      i have!!!!!! it’s really really awesome, just the feeling when you can’t hear and when suddenly the “health provider” gets it out, it’s just sooooo……….. such an awesome feeling 😛 😀 !!!!!!

  10. you are a bold, bold person. you have written what we all think but cannot bring ourselves to say or admit.

    good for you….

    i relate this to my joy at getting my ears candled and looking at the gunk that comes out!

    • Jamesbrownsains

      Ear candling does NOT work. Try this, burn a “ear candle” without it being stuck in your head, then, burn one while it is stuck in your head. Compare the two and you will see they are similar if not identical. Its an old wives tale type of thing, it’s all in your head…

  11. Jason

    Am I the only one to clean my ears? Yuck.

  12. Cassandra

    Lol!!! Potatoes!

  13. Sean

    I’ve also never had this happen

  14. Chloe's Mom

    What? I can’t hear!

  15. Geeeez! I do hate when it happens!

  16. Sal

    very educational!! I had no idea what the purpose of ear wax was!!

  17. blessings to you for writting a post on this.

  18. Margaret

    My son had one fall out that looked eerily like a kidney bean. I saved it inside a little crock on my kitchen counter and I look at it every so often and smile! ;-D

  19. I enjoy this, but it always surprises me and freaks me out momentarily when it happens.

    Also, my sister once got one ear so clogged up for so long that her other ear started to compensate for it. Then that chunk of wax fell right out and she was left with super-hearing.

  20. Venus

    OMFG-that just happened to
    me-not only was it disgusting, but I thought a bug came out of my ear!

  21. Janna

    omg, i never realized how awesome this was until it happened to me, for the first time, about a minute ago!! totally awesome!

  22. Old Git

    In 1990 I was having hearing problems in my right ear. I went to see my Doctor and he told me that 75% of my ear canal was blocked with wax. He prescribed drops that my wife kindly administered. Nothing happened until we went on holiday sailing our boat to Demark. One day I had a tickling sensation and this thing I guess pea sized, it felt like a brick dropped out. It was hard like amber! We lowered it into the Limfjord, where I guess it is still lying to this day!

  23. wet & waxy

    Not only has this never happened to me, I’ve never even heard of it happening to anyone else before.

    Though now that I’m thinking about it, I seem to remember hearing something about there being two kinds of earwax, and some people having genetically dry wax (which is what I assume allows this falling out to happen) and others having wet wax.

    Okay, I looked it up and it’s true. And I remember why I knew this, because it is the husband of one of my professors who “discovered” this. His wife is very cool, btw.
    http://www.usatoday.com/tech/science/discoveries/2006-01-29-dry-earwax_x.htm

    Can anyone here who had wax fall out confirm this theory?

  24. Soupy

    Earotica, right up there with the eargasm from a QTip.

  25. Love me some earwax

    I’ll never forget the massive chunks of sticky black ear wax I pulled out of both my ears years ago. It was so satisfying to see it come out, it was a cleansing experience. I haven’t had an eargasm since then. :(

  26. larry

    this is the most gratifying thing in my life. sometimes im tempted to eat it but i havent given into that yet. but i do save it for as long as i can keep track of it.

    BEST FEELING EVER!!!

    This happens to me on a semi regular basis, but it seems that it comes in periods where over the course of a few weeks it happens multiple times and then ceases for months. I look forward to it. I can feel when its coming on. That little tickle, crumble and flake. I tilt my head and just let it drop!!!

    I’m 34. When I was 27 I had the best one ever and am hoping one day it will happen again. I was just sitting there and felt the tickle……but somehow this one just seemed so special, I knew it was going to be a good one, I just didn’t realize how good. Left ear, a pop and tickle and I felt the dislodge. I always just let them drop and don’t even look at them. But as I tilted my head to the left it felt like a log coming out. I looked on the ground and a chunk about the length of about half of my pinkie finger and about the same thickness was laying there. Looking back I wish I had saved it. And for weeks I was hoping my right ear would have the same experience. Oh well….maybe one of these days I will have it happen again.

  29. Lisa

    I yanked a huge earwax ball out of my kids ear and I have to tell you that is the BEST THING EVER. I got to see it from a whole new angle, I got to reach in and extract it, guide it out with my little pinky finger nail…I got to experience the event like a spectator. It was glorious. Now I try to catch him and check for more. I even have a flashlight I use. “Come to mommy baby, and bring the flashlight, momma wants to look in your ears”
    I have never found another quite as rewarding as that first time.

  30. hmmm

    Does anyone know if this is supposed to hurt? I mean this just recently happened to me for the first time in my 20 years of life about everyday sometimes twice a day for a week now, except it is black and crusty (looks like dried blood) it is out of the same ear and this is the same ear that always pops when i jump in my dance class. Also I rarely have any earwax even when I clean them with a cut tip even after this happens! so weird…

  31. Eargasm

    “Eargasm”, ha! That’s classic.

    This just happened to me today. It’s a very weird feeling, I’ve had it happen once before, while I was driving. At first it scares you/creeps you out, but it doesn’t hurt or anything like that.

    It feels like warm fluid is being realeased from you ear, then a king of tickle, like something is coming out of your ear. Then you reach up and grab it, and you have nice little piece of cut off Tootie Roll. Like a piece of hashish. A little, resiney, brown bean that is a darkish orange on the inside and has no odor.

    I’m just glad it happens to other people, too.

  32. Hustine

    I once had an ear infection for like 2 months striaght(Intense). Towards the end,, i felt this build up in my ear and my hearing started going on one ear. I could feel my ear clogged,, so i started working my jawline up to my ear, hoping to get something out.

    After about 2 hrs of me stretching my ear and shaking my head,, i felt something coming out. At this point i cant hear and it hurting. This black glob,, seriously the size of my thumb slides out. I practically s#** myself. Then it happened 2 more time after that. BUT that was the best feeling. Sorry I had to share that lol

    • lil b

      when I was a child I had to go to the doctor to have my ear flushed. I still remember it and it felt so good when the big black ball came out.My husband thinks im crazy how I love QTips.

  33. ibeatyouall

    I had both ears blocked from wearing earplugs, got infections. Mines the worse, the doc had to get a metal long thing and scrape the crustations of the ear loads of them , then pull em out with tweezers’, by the time he got down to bottom a big crusty one stuck to ear drum pulled of,, MAN it was like someone turned up me hearing aid LOL and i dont have one , he was so exhausted he had the other ear to do yet, and was going to make me come back , i begged him to do it.. Painfull as sorry :(((( tha’ts a true scabby Infection of a years gunk

  34. Rosee

    I go to the doctor’s office and the nurse uses a Waterpik and juts warm water into my ear. As soon as the water goes in, out comes chunks of wax. It feels incredible. My hearing is restored to full power, and I can’t help but wonder if God gave me insanely waxy ears as a gift.

  35. DRIZZLE

    SO I WAS IN A STORE TODAY LOOKIN AROUND AND I SWEAR SOMEONE THREW SOMETHING AT ME AND IT LANDED IN MY EAR I GRABBED IT AND LOOKED AROUND FOR THE PERSON OR PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS. WHEN I OPENED UP MY HAND TO SEE A LITTLE BALL OF BROWNISH YELLOWISH WAX I FREAKED OUT (ON THE INSIDE) I SAID WTF TO MYSELF. WHEN I REALIZED WHAT JUST HAPPENED I COULDN’T HELP BUT LAUGH. I STILL CANT BELIEVE THIS HAPPENED TO ME WELL AT LEAST I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE. ; p MY EAR FEELS SO FREE I WONDER IF IT’LL EVER HAPPEN AGAIN? YES I WAS A BIT DISGUSTED AND YES I USE A Q-TIP ON A DAILY BASIS I GUESS THE WAX JUST WANTED TO COME OUT.

  36. stosha

    It happen to me today at first i was grossed out, until i did some reading. ITS NORMAL :)

  37. Fool's Gold

    I luuuurv it…….
    I marvel over the little rocks I can dig out of my ears.
    A release of endorphins!
    I keep it for a while to look at it and think…..
    “Yeeeeeaaaaahh……BIG WAX!”

  38. Eargasm

    My first experience happened 4 years ago in my left ear while getting into car. Today it happened in my right ear! I saved it because it was so cool! What a tingle!

  39. Bridget

    I remember driving to college one day many years ago. My right ear was so itchy that I stuck in my pinky finger and felt something hard. Using my nail, I dug out a huge chunk of black wax. Feeling it come out of my ear was one of the most amazing feelings EVER! I was rather freaked out and thought something was wrong, but told my mom (a nurse) and she said it was normal.

    It has not happened again and I keep hoping it will again some day!

  41. eggy ear face

    So, it’s not just me then.
    Happened a few times now, once on the stairs, I lost that one and looked for, literally, minutes. :-(
    The last one was just 2 days ago while I was cooking my girlfriends dinner. I would have kept it, looked at it, sniffed it and disected it for longer but I started to burn the food so I had to throw it away. I want the other ear to gasm now, I keep shaking my head and hoping for the tingleplunk feeling…

  42. Andy

    Holy Crap! This just happened to me and i got freaked out i thought something was wrong.

  43. Trish

    Never had the nugget fall out of my ear…. sounds cool! I just googled the issue of dark brown ear wax and I found out I was normal to have that. But I learned so much more!!! I want an eargasm!! But I might go to the doctor for a waterpik cleaning! I have learned so much!!!

  44. Nicole

    HELP ME PLEASE!!!! Earwax problem! :(
    One morning, I woke up and was still laying in bed, I was laying on my back and then I shifted to lay on my left side to fall back asleep and CCccRRRUMBLE!!! I hear an avalanche fall down my right ear. It alarmed me, so I got up immediately and was thinking that was either a small bug or earwax that fell down. Anyways, it’s been a week now and has been irritating me. I can hear the earwax in my right ear when I move sometimes, and when I yawn I hear it, when I try to sleep, it annoys me so much that I have a hard time to sleep. I move my jaws up and down to try and make the crusty noise in my right ear stop because it’s just so damn annoying, but it’s not working. I use Q-tips after a warm shower, yes. I’ve tried to dig out the chunk or not chunk of earwax out of my right ear with an ear digger, but I can’t reach it and I am too scared to reach too deep in the ear because I could harm my eardrum. My older sister dug my ears and she said that she saw the earwax in my right ear, but it was too deep in for her to dig out. *sigh* I am just so annoyed with the noise going on in my ear right now. And sometimes I can just hear the noise of the earwax just making noise like it’s popping crunching noise in my right ear even when I just sit still. Is it doing that on it’s own? To like, form a ball or something? Should I see a doctor? I told my other older sister about my earwax problem and she told me to just wait for it to come out on it’s own. Anyways, now I’m left wanting to know how long until the wax will come out of my right ear, like a chunk of wax that a lot seem to be saying.

    Anyone have something to help me with my earwax problem, please reply to me. Thank you.

    • Tin

      I had the same exact problem, it was too deep for my mom to get so I went for a swim and it definitely loosened it up because I no longer heard an avalanche every time i moved my head. I came back and my mom took it out because it was loose and in the outer canal….it was the size of a black bean, no wonder there was so much noise! hope you got it out!

  45. Ellybaby

    Feels like your ear is having a poo lol!

  46. Liz

    I finally know what those two giant balls were that came out of my ear when I was 16. I’M NOW 35. I was with my boyfriend playing around on the grass and he was kissing and screaming in my ear to make me laugh. All of a sudden I hear something coming out of my ear. It was a huge ball the size of a pea. Then another comes out same size. I was scared but too embarrased to tell my boyfriend what happened, so I threw them on the grass. I know gross, but I noticed a huge improvement with my hearing. Well now I know.

  47. harvester

    My mother used to harvest my sisters’ and my earwax when we were young and lived with her. she used a bobby pin, it always felt so good, and we were always sleepy and relaxed afterward, not to mention pleased at the yeilds of our little ears. When I moved to college I had to do it myself, not the same but still a good feeling-once I harvested one of those famed large, dark cavernous specimens and kept it for a day. Since then its only every once in a while I get a lovely crop. This search is my personal delight. I know its terrible to obsess about ear excrement but its like a little gift from your body to you. It still makes me proud to this day to fish out a healthy good sized chunk, its an excitement I don’t share as it tends to gross people out. I love harvesting ear product and I’m unbelievably not alone!

  48. Matt

    I had this happen to me last night.

    I heard the rumbling about 3 days ago, and I KNEW that it was the ball of wax. Then last night, as I laid my head down on my bed, I felt a tingle and an itch. I looked down on my pillow, and then I saw it. It was awesome.

    First time happened to me in 7th grade, I remember the experience distinctly. I’m now a Sophomore in college.

    Also, I’ve noticed that a lot of people come across this site and post here just AFTER their wax experience. Myself included. 😛

  49. wendywithaurora

    Really gross, but you can usually hear better again! Awesome!

    I don’t know about it falling out on it’s own but I find it fascinating when I use a q-tip and get a good chunk out.

  52. Alex

    Or when u pick a big chunk out

  53. dennes

    All three of my children were complaining of ear aches.. for once instead of rushing them to the dr like i always do, i took a look inside their tiny little ears and discovered what looked like a really huge booger!…. I irrigated their ears and when the big ball of nasty came rolling out to where i could grab it and pull it out , well , we all lookded at each other in amazement at the pure size of the thing… no I am a bit jealous as i have never had this happen to me and they all feel so much better, I want to feel better too!

  54. Covenant-Q

    I had a tiny earache about a week ago. It would only hurt just a bit when i opened my jaw all the way or when I stuck my finger inside to clean it. But a few days ago the tiny pain suddenly stopped but now my earwax is really wet and smelly. When I wake up my ears will feel really itchy so I take a finger and rapidly push it back and forth in the ear, not necessarily to physically dig out the wax but to apply enough suction to extract the wax. A very useful skill I’ve developed over the years.

    But when I did it yesterday morning and this morning, the wax that came out was almost like water draining from my ear. So i hurried and grabbed a paper towel and shoved it inside and when i pulled it out, it looked like melted caramel on the towel. However, it smelled like raw sewage. I’ve done this repeatedly and though my ear has literally no pain, idk why my wax is so wet. Infection maybe?

    The weirdest thing that happened though was that I used the jack end of my headphones, something i dont recommend any of you do unless you are skilled with foreign objects in you own ears, and pulled out a huge wad of gunk. Impressive as it was, I dissected the light brown semi-wet wad and to my astonishment found a small gummy white piece of matter. I have NO idea wtf it is!! I rolled it around in my finger tips until it dried up and crumbled away, but before it did it felt exactly like a small fragment of those gummy bears you can get from your local store.

    This is only in my right ear, I haven’t gone swimming but i think what happened is that since I manually clean my ears alot (you arent supposed to but i stopped caring years ago because i am fairly good from practice) some water may have gotten in my ears during a shower and infected it.

    Meh we’ll see how it turns out I guess. It’s pretty fun making all this wet stuff leave my ear though. Just sucks that for a few months now my right ear has been hearing a little worse than my left one. 😛

  55. Peter P-T

    I’ve had earwax come out before but never such a large ball as today – the size of a pea. And I was concerned about the colour, thinking it looked like dried blood – a dark brown colour with a tinge of red. Reading here, I guess I’m normal.

  56. Goose

    I’ve had this happen for as long as I can remember. Always made me shudder cause it tickled on the way out lol I’ve always had problems with my ears and no the magic is not goin to the doctors to clean them. My ear drums are scared and I’ve lost some hearing from it. when I was younger I was sitting in my room “picking” my left ear when I pulled out this huge hunk of bright yellow and black ball of wax. I was proud of myself so much that I went screaming to mom to show and tell her that I don’t need to go to the doctors anymore cause I can clean them myself lol. A warm/hot shower to soften the wax, and peroxide. it will bubble some wax out making you feel better.

    I still use peroxide and now use a bobby pin to clean my ears. if I don’t I feel crazy

  57. Daria

    never had this happen to me…i clean my ears everyday lol, or 3-4 times a week and really theres nothing to have an orgasm over :/

  58. JT

    I randomly saw this post on the right Top Posts panel and I started laughing before I even read it. This is brilliant and so true. I thought I was the only one that felt relief and joy instead of disgust. =p
    “Yes, like a loyal employee punching out after a hard day on the line, your earwax heads home with its lunchbox in hand after drowning dust and dirt on a double shift in your ear canal.” I laughed, reread, re-laughed haha

  59. Kandi

    First time it happened to me I was grocery shopping and I thought a bug was crawling out of my ear and I freaked out til I realized what it was. It was huge! It happene again a couple days ago in my sleep and now my ear is all stopped up and hurting and I am really wishing for it happen again like right now!!

  60. I had a big wad of wax taken out of my doctor because my obsessive cleaning using a cotton swab pushed the wax further down my ear canal. It was a great joy to have that removed.

  61. Kathy

    Wow,there’s this whole ear business of which I’ve been rather blissfully ignorant! Never had this happen, but I use q-tips daily and clean my ears with peroxide every few weeks, so maybe that’s why I’ve missed this event. As an adult, my son had some ear bother and went to the dr. who promptly flushed and picked out big ear wax balls. He said his hearing improved after. I didn’t realize this is a typical thing! Geez! Can’t quite get over the “ewwww” factor on this one to find it awesome, but I’ll liken it to picking off a scab, which I find awesome! Especially those big, crusty knee ones from childhood!

  62. finnicky

    this same thing happens to my gf and it makes me want to scream like a litle girl!!!!! but for some strange reason…i like helping her with it 8)

    I feel like I’m missing out on a fantastic experience… this has never happened to me before! Am I freakishly no normal?!

    Just happened to me while I was having lunch. I felt something moving in my right ear then a drop. I tilted my head right and scooped it with my hand. I inspected it and wanted to keep it but I was having lunch with a colleague. I recovered from a sinus infection and both my ears were clogged. I hope my left ear releases wax too. i was hoping it would be a bigger piece of wax though.

    I read this article awhile ago and thought it was pretty disgusting, it wasn’t until the other day I could truly understand how amazing an earwax ball feels when it just falls out as it finally happened to me. Sure I’m still disgusted by it, but at least now I understand :)

    Fantastic! This just happened to me – this morning – picking with my long little finger nail… then omg there really is something in there … then i got it out – thought it was a fly but pulled it appart and it wasn’t … phoned my mum … got really panicky … then thought oh – other ear feels a bit clogged and got my other little fingernail out and … out it popped – slightly different colour and shape but essentially the same – then phoned my mum again… was pretty freaked out – am slightly worried if there is more where that came from might have to see a doc for the hell of it…

    wish i could pull that kind of thing out of my ears every day now tho – didn’t know what i was missing

    Just happened to me[:
    Felt amazing, lol:D

  71. wax-nuggetz

    Hahaha – so I’m not alone – this happens to me like every 3 months. A little pea size nugget of me – my PRECIOUS!!!

  72. Caroline

    I’ve had an infection for about 2 months now. I am desperate for this to happen to me. Is there any way I can ensure it will?

  73. Johndoe

    These comments are hilarious but this has recently started happening to me (24yr) and I needed to make sure it was normal. These comments about it feeling amazing are feelings i dont feel lol but its pretty freaky when it falls out i will say that.

    Beware of Q-tips. Because of an unbearable itch inside my ears, I became addicted to scraping inside the ear canal with Q-tips. I don’t think it’s coincidental that I now I’m totally hearing impaired. My audiologist says I have zero earwax. I thought Q-tips were dangerous because somebody could accidentally bump into you and you could perforate your ear drum. I did not know that you could push wax further into the ear canal damaging the ear drum or that the wax serves as a protective barrier against bacteria or other microorganisms. By removing all the wax, maybe I allowed microorganisms to destroy the hair cells in the cochlea. The itching by the way is ten times worse when you wear hearing aids. Try not to use Q-tips but if you must at least don’t go too far in and dunk them in some vinegar for true relief.

    You’re weird because you’re an inarticulate fool. Your grammar and spelling is atrocious.

  76. Abby

    That should never happen… That’s disgusting! You’re supposed to clean out your ears… Come on now simple hygiene people.. I will never date a guy who doesn’t clean out his ears.. How nasty!

  77. Ohhh…so wish that would happen to me right now. My right ear is seriously plugged and I can hear everything going on inside of my head :(

  78. Bri

    It’s never happen to me but now I want it to. I don’t like being left out. Haha I’m a weirdo, please feel free to judge me.

  79. Sulaiman

    I have always considered it abnormal, and even felt really bad when my sister said she never had it. But i’m really relieved now, having confirmed that ear wax could be dry or wet and knowing that it happens to several other people.

    This has happened to me a few times, first time i was 18, ears were super clogged. Went to the doctor and they flushed it out with an irrigator and warm water. Tons of gunky earwax came splooged out, dark orange and brown, once it came out my hearing improved immensely. In my late 20’s i got an ear infection and vertigo from surfin in dirty water too much, balls of wax the size of a small marble would come out. At first i thought it was kelp in my ear! With the combo of surfing and playing music, (im a guitarist and drummer) i think my body produces more wax than normal in order to protect my ears. Kaiser has a great ear flushing station where they stick these tubes in your ears and they flush out all the accumulated wax. Too bad i switched insurance. But, I go annually to a ear/nose/throat specialist and he vacuums out my ears. Love it!

    if it happens again, feed it to your cat – they love it!!

  82. Crusty the sailor

    Thank God for Google! I was at work on the bridge of a ship when this happened this morning, after a wriggling like an insect it rolled out onto chart table! I panicked as in South America and bot flys are around!

    Just recovered from cold and quit smoking. Flying flew in my ear few weeks ago, maybe related.

    The back and forth comments on this topic made be laugh harder than I have in years. Thanks!

    I too suffer from the condition that causes ear wax to build up, clog, and then eventually fall out in a chunk. I find it to be a strange tingly sensation when it happens. The ear nerves sure are sensitive. The first time I remember the experience was when I was in the back seat of a car talking to a friend in the front passenger seat. Right in mid sentence he said, “a chunk of wax just fell out of your ear.” Of course I felt it, and I was surprised he even noticed it. We both laughed. He’s a doctor and has witnessed a lot more shocking stuff than ear wax.

  84. Giselle

    Thank god! This is the second time this has happened to me and I freaked out!! I can relax now, knowing that its normal and happens to other people. Thanks guys :)

    Ear wax is produced by something to a sweat gland. I sweat profusely and also have large amounts of ear wax on a constant basis. What’s funny is that I can be just sitting around and feel a large chunk fall down in my ear. I go to an ENT about 4 times a year to have wax removed. He uses a tiny vacuum cleaner to suck out that junk. What I pick it out (and I love doing it) I usually smell it and its smell is bad. So, if you have over active sweat glands, chances are you’ll have over active ear wax. Oh well, just the way we were made.

    When I rinsed my left ear at a hotel last summer, a large chunk came out. It was hard as a rock. But, I was relieved because I had problems with my left ear previously.

    All I have to say is continue rinsing your ears so that the earwax can soften and come out automatically. If you need to go to the doctor just in case, then do so.

    I highly recommend an ear syringe and/or a ear washer bottle you can buy on Amazon.com.

    I enjoy cleaning my ears out with a toothpick. I push the toothpick in deep until i feel it press against what feels like a ball of wax , I push the toothpick into the wax and hear a popping sound. After this fluid drains out of my ear and my hearing is lost for about 3 days , but when my hearing returns it is better than ever!

  88. Chachacha

    Omgoodness I love how honest you guys are. I love this to!!! And it’s most defiantly NOT weird.

  89. EarWaxSavedMyAss

    Oh i got one for ya.. i was just a wee lad yeah… and me mates and I used to drink crappers til we was legless, until we was wrote off completely.. one night this bogger caught me playin titmickey with his mott and took me outside.. i was expectin to get loafed or creamed, but this crazy muckshot took me down a boreen to this little caravan in the sticks to kick my backdoor in.. he was trying to tear my hoop to pieces with this knob and it was horrid, but it wasn’t until he started horsin it into my ear that it got ugly.. it took only minutes until he was vinegar stroking and exploding like an h-bomb.. i caught some jip in my ear when i turned my head to remove it a chunk of brown wax came out.. i mean a damn jar of wax.. it was a religious experience.. i went from a scundered bloke who sacrificed an ear to avoid a scalding ring to a careless apache looking to mill it out with this poofter.. the release of pressure from the wax made me invincible and i belted the bean flicker in his cake-hole and with a massive clatter i knocked the knobjockey into his cassie.. i dipped my ball-bag in his gob and plugged his nostrils.. he shook like he was having a seizure and after what seemed like ages.. he finally broke free.. he started legging it as fast as he could and i noticed he had shat his cacks.. i wasn’t done though so i hopped in a jammer and ran that knacker down.. i was bleedin deadly with my drivin and i wasted that scumsucker at 120km/h.. he was that ear wax saved me life.. and me arse.. and i can’t tell you how happy i am.. sure a bloke got topped but who needed that muppet anyway..

    Omg it just happened to me my first time I was staring at it for a good couple of minutes I couldn’t believe what it was as I lay my head down on my pillow it just came out getting up so freaking fast thinking it was a bug! Smh

  91. This has happened to me only once. I had the sensation of something being pushed out, then out dropped a dark, compact ball of wax. I looked at it and thought, “What the heck…?”

    Just the answer I was looking for after what fell outta my ear, good to know my internal employees are working as hard as I do. Coffee break!

  93. Bai Urduja Marchesa

    dear lord, i had uncomfortableness 3 days ago when i first noticed that same feeling back in 2003. i got ear problems specifically on my right and since then i am having difficulties on myy right ear. its much difficult than the left wich is running normally. but then 3 days ago, there it went again. i can feel something wrong its itchyspainful maybe because it is like a granite w/ rough edges that rubs againts my skin. and i hate it! its for cryinh out loud annoying! is there a home remedy that you can share for me? i dont want to wait for years just for this madafaka to leave my ear! i dont want to see the eent dr again. if there’s a safe way to remove it ill have it tried other wise ill move to 2nd option but will take longer, go see dr eent. thanks!

  94. Last year, when I stayed at a resort while my dad was at work, I was in the bathroom cleaning my ears with the Rhino ear washer bottle. I kept spraying in my left ear until I saw a chunk hanging out. I repeatedly sprayed my left ear until the chunk came out and fell in the sink. It was dark and hard as a rock when I touched and broke it apart. My left ear felt so good because I felt a blockage in it earlier.

  95. Maybe we should be thankful if the ear wax comes out of our ears naturally. Thanks for posting.

      Just happened out of my right ear for the second time today…scared the hell out of me. After reading that some people go their whole lives without the experience I regretted throwing them in the trash. Until my girlfriend said I was disgusting for thinking how cool it was. Theres a blizzard raging outside and her belongings are going to be out there shortly.

    Haha…earwax is by far the coolest thing the body produces…and apparently it has healing properties..there was a story in a medical journal about a doctor collecting it from many sources…and suspending it in a solution…and using it as a way to treat ear infections…

    My husband does not get the soft orange kind of wax, he gets very large flaky earwax. I love to pick it with a bobby pin and examine it! Once it was so clogged I had to take tweezers and gently pull on the flakes. It finally let lose and almost exploded out of his ear in big, flaky chunks! Some were rolled up like a ball and I uncurled them. I love to explore little crevices and pull out large crispy wax and he says he can hear them crunching in his ear and that when I grab on and slowly pull with tweezers. He loves the feeling and I love the results.

    Happened to me once when I was 17, I remember because it was my Birthday, was brushing my teeth and felt a weird rumbling sensation in my left ear, leaned my head over the sink and just felt something roll out, looked down in the sink and saw a huge piece, it was black and brown and chunky as hell. Was so mesmerized by it I stopped brushing and just stared at it until my mother peeped in and started yelling and tried to kill it, she thought it was a bug. Needless to say It was a pretty unusual couple of minutes. But it did feel good when it rolled out LoL.

  104. This is awesome indeed!!! 😀

  105. Jeanette

    Good! I’m not the only one!

    This has only happened to me last winter when I took my first flight in over 10 years to go to NY with my best friend. We were taking off in the evening. I had the middle seat, my best friend the right aisle, and, luckily, a young woman our age to my left with a wondow view. Out of nowhere something semi-sticky and brown almost the size of a kidney bean fell into my long, dark brown hair. I have doctors in my family, and I didn’t realize what it was (just thay it was really strange), until I picked it up with 2 of my fingers and felt it. I would’ve “picked at it” or “research” it more but 1) I was a little disgusted knowing that it happened in close spaces with the nearest bathroom at the back of the plane…and I had 2 other young women next to me and threw it somewhere it the ground (hopefully not on anyone’s purse!)
    I realized that during take-off I was adjusting pressure in my ears and nose by doing some excerises I had read earlier. I can definitely attest that they work!

    There is a giant hunk of something behind a wall of ear wax and it tumbles around…how can I get it out?

  107. this morning while cleaning my ear (with a tube) and there was dark, dark brown on the q-tip….tube has been stopped up a long time, can’t hear anything at all out of it. this is just the first time I have seen anything like the dark brown. fluid drains out of it a lot, but still can’t hear out of it.

  108. tiffany

    Ever since my 4 year old son was 3 months he’d have dark brown balls of wax in his ear canal and it was super scary and after a while he got use to momma and her bobby pin pulling his “ear boogers” out as gently as I could it was so disgusting and smelled foul to this day but he acts a little relieved afterwards his father will not do this and now I know im not the only parent that has or does this I feel better that hes not the only one with this issue his younger brothers 3 & 2 do nit have this issue. .
