You know how they never stick anything in your ear smaller than your elbow? Well, I have learned my lesson. Don't do it, not even innocent looking q-tips. Seriously, the pain is awful. I don't think I did anything to my eardrum but maybe broke some skin inside or something, not really sure. I had no idea the ear was so sensitive...it hurts like the Dickens. Thank goodness for ibuprofen. I'm told that it'll start getting better in 3 days! 3 days! Ughhhhh
Moral of the story...nothing goes in the ear.
