THIS VIDEO MAY HAUNT YOU: A woman's bad headache turns out to be a spider living inside her ear
Lekshmi was rushed to a hospital after experiencing severe headaches ever since she had fallen asleep on her veranda
A woman in India was reportedly rushed to the hospital after experiencing some unusually severe headaches only to find that a spider was living inside her ear all this time.
The woman who identified herself as Lekshmi L was rushed to a hospital in Karnataka after she claimed to be experiencing some severe headaches ever since she had fallen asleep on her veranda. Once the doctor was done with his inspection, he revealed to the patient's family an eight-legged creepy-crawly which was clearly burrowed inside her ear.
As per The Indian Express, Dr. Santosh Shivaswamy was the ENT consultant who treated Lekshmi at the hospital. He told the waiting reporters that, although it is quite common to have people come in to get strange objects removed from their ears, Lekshmi's case was something he had never seen before.
In a conversation with the Daily Mail, the woman said, "I was terrified as I could feel the movement of a creature in my ear. The acute ear ache 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."
However, this is not the first time that a video has surfaced showing a spider crawl into a human body. There was another video that went viral a few years ago where a man found a spider crawling out of his ear after he swam in a lake. Bruce Branit, who was the alleged victim in this story, posted a video on his YouTube channel in order to share his harrowing experience.
He captioned the video, "I went swimming at Lake of the Ozarks last weekend and got a super painful ear infection. Totally blocked ear canal. Tried to use my phone's camera to see if I could see anything. Found this!" However, it was later revealted that Branit is a visual effects artist by profession and had artificially created the video.
