Hey folks, remember that story about how 'ear wigs' can tunnel into your brain and drive you insane, before laying dozens of eggs and then dying?
Well, never to be outdone by any stupid myth, we have a real live story from the best of the Internet:
A woman who woke up in the middle of the night because she felt an odd "crawling sensation" in her head turned out to be harboring a real, live cockroach in her nose, according to a new report of the case.http://www.livescience.com/57806-cockroach-nose-rare-case.html
The 42-year-old woman, who lives in Chennai, India, said she woke up after feeling that something had crawled up her nose, reported the New Indian Express.
"I could not explain the feeling, but I was sure it was some insect. There was a tingling, crawling sensation. Whenever it moved, it gave me a burning sensation in my eyes," the woman told the New Indian Express. She also reported experiencing a severe headache and difficulty breathing, according to CNN.
The woman visited several clinics before doctors found the nightmare-inducing cause. The cockroach had "burrowed into the roof of the nose, almost near the skull base, which is the dividing point between the brain and the nose," Dr. M.N. Shankar, the ear, nose and throat physician who treated the patient at Stanley Medical College in Chennai, told CNN.
