Lekshmi resides in India and enjoys taking naps on the veranda.

One day, when she was taking a much-needed nap, a tiny spider crawled inside her ear to make a comfortable home.

Because the spider was so small, Lekshmi did not notice when it entered her ear.

After experiencing headaches for a few days, Lekshmi decided to visit the local hospital in Karnataka.

During the appointment, a doctor realized that the spider was causing Lekshmi’s headaches.

According to the Indian Express, Dr. Santosh Shivaswamy had never experienced a case like this.

Although it is common for patients to get some objects stuck in their ear, Dr. Shivaswamy and his medical team had never seen someone with a spider living in their ear canal.

Lekshmi was terrified upon hearing the news. She could feel movement in her ear, but she never would have guessed that a spider was the cause.

The doctors were able to remove the spider without any complications.

Lekshmi is now free of headaches, but she may think twice now before taking a nap on the veranda.

Even though these events are very uncommon, it is still scary to imagine a spider living inside your ear.
