Since the lymph node is busy making more cells to fight infection, it gets bigger and can sometimes even be tender to touch. It will go down after infection is resolved. ...Read more
Damage to ear: Prolonged and sustained exposure to loud noises like guns, power tools and loud music can damage the very sensitive hair cells in your cochlea that allow you to hear. When these cells start to become permanently damaged then you will start to hear ringing in your ears. Try to protect your ears from this as much as possible with ear plugs and perhaps some of the ringing will decrease or disappear. ...Read more
