I've just been and had my ears syringed (being a wuss/coward I've been putting it off for a while). There was enough wax removed to form a dozen candles! Can't believe the difference, I'm suddenly aware of the slightest sounds around me, and can even hear myself properly when practising! Didn't realise how bad I sound . I saw my GP first who reccomended I had it done, and if anyone else feels they may have a similar problem I suggest they don't put it off like I did.
