Doctors in India were startled when they made the disturbing discovery of a live spider crawling out of a woman’s ear.
Doctors filmed the patient — named only as Lekshmi L. — as she complained of a headache and a tingling sensation inside her head. That’s when they discovered the creepy crawler burrowed within her eardrum.
According to the patient, she had fallen asleep on her veranda but woke up with a painful blockage in her right ear. Medics attempted to urge the critter out by utilizing light to draw it out
Dr. Santosh Shivaswamy at Columbia Hospital said:
“It is common to see emergency room visits due to the presence a foreign object in the ear and it takes a simple procedure to remove the object. However, when a living insect makes its way inside a human ear, the patient’s anxiety makes it difficult to continue the procedure. It’s rare to see a live spider moving inside someone’s ear canal.”
According to the New York Post, Lekshmi said: “I was terrified as I could feel the movement of a creature in my ear. The acute earache followed by sharp pains suffocated me. I couldn’t think of anything and was petrified when the doctor confirmed the presence of a spider in my ear.”
