Talk about living rent free in one’s head!

A woman from India went to the hospital complaining of a headache and a tingling sensation inside her head after waking up from a nap on her veranda, according to the New York Post.

The cause of the headache was soon identified AND filmed exiting the patient’s ear canal!

Turns out, a spider had taken up residence in the woman’s ear and adding to the anxiety of the moment, the disturbing moment the spider decided there was too much ruckus in the new neighborhood and decided to seek better confines was captured on video.

All the while as you watch the incident unfold, you’re on the edge of your seat waiting for the little fellow to suddenly retreat from hence it came.

Columbia Hospital’s Dr. Santosh Shivaswamy told The Post it was “rare to see a live spider moving inside someone’s ear canal.”

“It is common to see emergency room visits due to the presence a foreign object in the ear and it takes a simple procedure to remove the object,” he added. “However, when a living insect makes its way inside a human ear, the patient’s anxiety makes it difficult to continue the procedure.”
