Spiders, earwigs, who knows what else crawls in your ear while you sleep....


A woman who went to China's Changsha Central Hospital complaining of itching in the left side of her head was told by doctors that the source of irritation was a spider that had been living inside her ear canal for five days.

OK
My daughter had numerous ear infections when she was little. We would finish a round of antibiotics and within a few days it was back again. They decided to put tubes in her ears. So on her 2nd birthday we drove 2 1/2 hours to an ENT to check her out and do the surgery. After making the incision in the eardrum, he started suctioning out the infection and sure enough - there had been a gnat that had gotten into her ear. I guess as it healed at one time after being infected, it healed around it causing her to have continuous infections. So I have always hated those little pesky things flying around ever since.

I detest gnats! And they feel like a boulder when they land in your eye!

I swallowed one driving once (windows and moonroof open), it got stuck in the back of my throat and I didn't have any water and almost threw up. eek

And there's nothing worse than dry heaving while on the back of a horse. He just doesn't appreciate it. smirk

While I believe that you didn't have any water in the car, I can not believe that you had nothing to drink..... I've seen the Mazda™ cup holders that you had modified to fit Tanq™ bottles. Perhaps the Minion forgot to restock the car prior to your drive?

While asleep at 2AM in my apt in San Antonio 1985, as I began to roll over I was inflicted with searing pain in the middle of the back of my neck.....Like molten hot metal - searing hot! I jumped up and flipped the light on just in time to see a scorpion running over the edge of the mattress. He did not live long. Fortunately, in that area they are like a nasty bee sting. Within an hour the ice cube had taken the pain, but not the marble-sized knot. That took a few days to go away.

My ex had a moth fly into his ear once. He said it sounded like someone banging on a quanset (sic) hut as it fluttered against his eardrum. Ended up having to go to the ER to have it extracted.

That is one of the most disturbing pictures I think I have ever, ever laid eyes on. I may wear ear plugs to bed for the rest of my life.
