Watch What Doctors Found Living In This Woman’s Ears, It’s The Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of!
This story might give you the creepy-crawlies but it’s a real-life nightmare for some. Imagine going in for what you thought was water in your ear and finding out that that ‘water’ is really one of North America’s notorious venomous spiders.
For Susie Torres that nightmare came true. The Kansas woman says it’s changed the way she sleeps.
On Thursday, KSHB news reported on just such a story, horrifying Americans across the country.
When Torres went to the doctor to have her left ear probed, she wasn’t sure what the problem was. According to Torres, during the examination, “[The medical assistant] ran out and said, ‘I’m gonna go get a couple more people,’ and she said, ‘I think you have an insect in there.'”
Torres notes that she “didn’t panic,” and that after the removal procedure, the doctor told her that the spider was a brown recluse.
“[I] never thought that they would crawl in your ear or any part of your body,” Torres told KSHB, adding that the medical team told her that she was lucky to have avoided being bitten by the spider.
Torres says that she slept with cotton balls in her ears the following night as she didn’t have any earplugs at the ready. Can you blame her?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a bite from a brown recluse can cause itching, muscle pain, increased sweating, headaches, nausea and/or a fever. The CDC suggests treatment by a medical professional for any brown recluse bite.
The long term effects after a bite from a brown recluse are pretty nasty. Typically, wherever you are bitten you’re left with large lesions of dead flesh from the venom. Can you imagine if that had happened in her ear?
