      Hi all,

      I'm stuck sitting at work and I've had q flu like virus the past two days, been blowing my nose like crazy (probably too rough) all days my at had spiked a fair bit and I'm nervous I've done some damage to my T from excessive blowing of my nose?
      I'm on amoxicillin at the moment for suspected throat infection also, anyone had similar experience?

      Is blowing your nose aggressively dangerous?

      Ear infection.
      A virus makes your head ring even if you don't have tinnitus. I don't think blowing your nose hard causes any damage. Hope you get better soon.

      Okay, does anyone know if someone were to have a bacterial infection like strep throat would affect tinnitus? If so, if the bacteria were killed, would that make the tinnitus go down?

      Maybe focus on good nutrition for a while? There are things you can do to boost your immune system.
      A good approach to this:
      1. Focus on the macro nutrients first, then the mircro's
      2. Consider checking your vitamin levels and use of supplementation
      3. Use the right spices and herbs (look for an research-based approach, see articles on: of
      4. Relax (and get moving)
      5. Sleep

      All parts in the body are (in)drectly interconnected. Boosting your immune system might not kill the virus completely, but it can control it.
