At first, she taught that her headache was just a normal one but after consulting a doctor, she found out that the spider was inside her ear after she snoozed on her veranda. This is where the little spider crawled and decided to make her ear its pretty snuggly home, and the horrifying discovery was made in a hospital in Karnataka, India.
“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,” Lekshmi explained. Dr. Santosh Shivaswamy, an ENT consultant added that it is not unusual for people to have things to get stuck in the ears. However, it is the first time that they encountered a patient with an eight-legged little creature in her ear.
