How would you handle a SPIDER in your ear?!?!
Well it happen to one woman who’s worst fear was realized after going to a Hospital for an excruciating headache, and it turned out to be a large SPIDER was living in her ear!
This 49-year-old woman,who has been identified only as Lekshmi L., had woken up from an afternoon nap that she had taken out on her veranda, after awakening she started experiencing a “slight discomfort” and a “tingling sensation” in her right ear.
Suspecting some type of obstruction, Lekshmi L. tried to dig around in her ear with her fingernail, but she wasn’t able to feel nor remove anything.
After her headache became WAY too excruciating to handle, Lekshmi’s husband rushed her to Columbia Asia Hospital which is in Hebbal, India
When doctors shined a light inside her aching right ear, they discovered the freaky truth…which was that a live spider had crawled inside Lekshmi’s ear and decided to take up residence.
The Doctors immediately worked on to coaxing the SPIDER out of his new home/ hiding spot, they successfully lead it out of Lekshmi’s ear canal using a small beam of light.
Dr. Santosh Shivaswamy, who is a Consultant at ENT at Columbia Hospital, said “that the terrifying nature of the patient’s injury made it especially difficult to treat.”
“It is common to see emergency room visits due to the presence (of) a foreign object in the ear and it takes a simple procedure to remove the object,” he said. “However, when a living insect makes its way inside a human ear, the patient’s anxiety makes it difficult to continue the procedure.”
