I had just finished taking a shower and I was cleaning my ears. I put a q-tip (cotton swab) in my right ear then I felt something REALLY weird. The right side of my tongue felt like it was being poked with a needle in 1 spot near the back, then my right eye started tearing up like crazy, then my right nostril started leaking, and I began to cough up a lung (not literally). I felt like I was going to vomit so I stood above the sink (not the toilet cause I had taken a **** and forgotten to flush). After about 3-4 mins of coughing and my right side of my face acting weird, it went away. I'm still coughing a bit though but that's it.

Anyone have ANY idea what it was?

Oh yeah and I cleaned my left ear without and problems.

And no I didn't poke my brain.

Edit: I didn't pop my ear drum because I can hear fine with it.

Uh... you poked something bad.

Glad to see that my 1 year study of medicine pays off

You might have released some fluids that were trapped (like a clot) and the sudden release into your brain caused you to go retardo for a second.

More importantly, did you remember to flush the toilet afterwards? There's nothing worse than walking into a bathroom and finding out someone dropped a deuce and didn't flush. ****ing smells man. Not a pretty sight either.

u hav teh AIDS!!!1111 olololol

Now that that's out of the way, I think that you poked something that you're not supposed to poke.

That is all.

What if the entrant to the bathroom area has a scat/poo fetish?

You may have just poked a nerve or your eardrum causing something to become irritated or something. I dont know, just a thought.

Wow. That's really weird. Usually medical questions on UG are pretty minor, but I would seriously consider getting that checked out.
#19
I didn't go to a real doctor cause I'm better now.

And I didn't stick it in any deeper than I normally do.
#20
Let's see, object enters left side of the brain, right side of the body goes crazy.
That's a stroke, my friend. Good luck with physical therapy.
Edit: Oops, right ear. Well, still sounds like a stroke to me.

Which way I fly is Hell; myself am Hell;
And, in the lowest deep, a lower deep
Still threatening to devour me opens wide,
To which the Hell I suffer seems a Heaven.



Bored? read these, or this

Huh? TS clearly stated that he was standing over the sink because he had taken a **** and forgotten to flush. Read the whole post. Sheesh.

Well, I personally do not have such a fetish. If you know for a fact that the next person to enter the bathroom gets his jollies by looking at poo then by all means don't flush. Just be damned sure I don't accidentally make it into the bathroom before the guy with the weird fetish.

It was just a nerve you probably hit. Sometimes I get a pimple in a specific place near my eyelash and it sends me into sneezing fits when I pop it :-\.
#24
You probably just hit a nerve, or something.

Also... after that happened to you, WHY THE HELL DID YOU GO AND CLEAN THE LEFT EAR?!
#26
You may have released some clotted fluids in your ear, and the sudden rush caused your body to **** up for a moment.

oh and if you released some some fluids, could that have been an annurism or however the **** you say it?

I had just finished taking a shower and I was cleaning my ears. I put a q-tip (cotton swab) in my right ear then I felt something REALLY weird. The right side of my tongue felt like it was being poked with a needle in 1 spot near the back, then my right eye started tearing up like crazy, then my right nostril started leaking, and I began to cough up a lung (not literally). I felt like I was going to vomit so I stood above the sink (not the toilet cause I had taken a **** and forgotten to flush).

SILLY!!,thats not Q-tips,thats a chisel and hammer that messes with your inner ear,And therefor your balance,which makes you feel off balance and weird.

seriously tho,careful with the Q-tips this isn't one of those things you had as a child where you smash the shapes into the right holes,God I love those things


edit : Yeah man on a serious note,probably honestly screwed up your inner ear and knocked your balance out of wack because the fluid in your inner ear completely controls your sense of balance,if you felt like you couldn't tell what was up or down,like your floating underwater,then that might be it,I dunno about the other symptoms tho! Doctors FTW.
