Worst Nightmare – Spider Living in Woman’s Ear

Worst Nightmare


Did you see this?  Doctors in China removed this spider from a woman’s ear. I’m not a fan of creepy crawly bugs, but one actually LIVING in my ear might be my worst nightmare.

Worst Nightmare - Doctor Removes Spider from Ear

A doctor was able to remove the spider, which was apparently living in a woman’s ear for FIVE days.

Something to think about when I’m falling asleep tonight….  : /

    ack… now I”m not going to sleep tonight Ewww

  2. UUmmmm… EEwwww….
    How do you not know that for 5 days??!!
    (I just totally shivered)

  3. Now that is scary. I am not liking spiders outside let alone inside my body.

    Oh my goodness! That is so awful. I once saw a tv show about real ER stories. There was this man that was in there and every few minutes he would scream at the top of his lungs (like a girl – their words, not mine). The man’s wife came in and she was so baffled -she had never seen him act this way. He wouldn’t speak or move or anything. Finally, they were examining his scalp or something and a doctor noticed something in his ear. There was some sort of large pinching bug that had crawled in his ear. Every time it moved it was very painful and he was deathly afraid of whatever bug it was (I guess he knew what was in there).  The moment they took it out he stopped screaming and was completely fine!  What a nightmare!

  5. That is freaky but I don’t understand how someone could go like that for 5 days. Think I would be in there with tweezers or something, using a mirror or whatever to get that thing out. Yuck!

  6. Anita Leibert says:

    This story really spooked me out. I’ve recently seen some spiders in my home that I would NEVER want in my ear! How creepy!!

  7. Oh my goodness. I have heard about ticks in ears before, but never spiders. I listen to my iPod while gardening to keep bugs out of my ears, but I never imagined that happening.

    what a creepy thing to happen

  9. Patricia Mohl says:

    Holy crap my ear has been itching for the last couple of weeks. Now I have to be concerned it”s NOT an earache. Hoping for a simple earache now foe sure.

  10. My son was telling me about this and it just makes me itch all over…lol

    OMGosh-creepy-and I should never have looked at those pic’s-hope I can sleep to night-I always fear swallowing a spider while sleeping YIKES!

  12. Lisa Brown says:

    My goodness, I wish I did not stop in to read this. Makes my stomach turn. Yikes!

  13. OMG ! This is something that would have me FREAKING out so badly. 5 days. whhhoooohhhooo.
    God bless her she didn’t realize it. All you see anymore is stories with worms in someone’s eye, a worms living in someone’s infected leg and this spider in an ear. Too creepy.

  15. Patricia Williams says:

    This is horrifying. I hate spiders and never thought about them crawling into mmy ears bbefore. I think I will sleep with earplugs in now.

  16. EW!!! that is SO gross!!

  17. Betsy Barnes says:

    I have been cleaning my ears constantly since I read this!  EWWWW :)

  18. Oh my gosh I think I had a mini panic attack just seeing the picture. Gross!!!

  19. Thomas Murphy says:

    I’ve gotta show my GF this, she hates bugs!

  20. CeCelia Bessenbacher says:

    I told my Fiancee about this. He put cotton in his ears. I also told him that we also swallow spiders in our sleep. 

  21. I wonder why a spider would even want to stay there to begin with
