I just recently started stretching, im double gauging. My bottom holes are up to a 2g, and my top holes are 4's. My only concern has been that my 2g on my right ear feels tough near my jaw bone and my jaw bone/ neck is somewhat sore. I know it isn't from tapers because I switched to plugs... So my question being, Is this an infection? Or is this just because i stretched. Im kind of thinking its an infection.

By "double gauging" do you mean skipping every other size? If so, there's your problem.
I'm Lindsay.
I have 1/2" lobes and 11 piercings: left helix x2, both conches, both nostrils, septum, navel, and VCH.
My lobes are small but I know a lot about stretching and how to do it safely, so message me if you have any questions!

I think he means double stretching as in stretching both his holes.
But still, I'm slightly unsure of what he means by this post.

Perhaps you can supply us with a picture and circle the area in question with a better description?

The person has 2 holes in each ear.
The sound of gun fire so loud and rapid, but it seems to be so quiet around me, and out of nowhere I feel peace cover me. I reach down and reload my ticket home. The taste of cold steel on my lips, and a second later silence fills the January air...
