Your Ears Do More Than Hear
Did you know your ears are not just for hearing? They are also the home for your balance and spatial orientation.
You may experience dizziness during earwax removal by Microsuction. The vacuum created by Microsuction causes cool air to flow into your ear canal. When the cool air comes into contact with your eardrum, you might feel dizzy as a result.
Your vestibular apparatus provide sensory information about motion, equilibrium, and spatial orientation. This temperature drop cools down your vestibular apparatus. Cooling it down may cause temporary dizziness for some people.
Dizziness From Microsuction is Temporary
If dizziness occurs, it usually lasts for a few short minutes. Once the cold air inside the ear canal is warmed up again, the dizzy feeling will subside.
If you feel dizziness during or after Microsuction, tell your Ear Nurse and listen to their instruction. It’s best not to stand up too quickly in case you lose your balance.
