Anrie, it is a term used describe invasion of the 7th facial nerve ganglion by causing severe ear pain, paralysis of a part of the face and sometimes, hearing loss and vertigo. It has nothing to do with a swollen gland in the wrist, so I’m not sure if we’re talking about the same thing. If you have more questions please post them as a new question to ensure that I get them. Good luck.
