We all have things we are deeply afraid of whether it is an irrational fear or not.

A lot of people tend to be afraid of spiders. In fact, arachnophobia is one of the most well-known and widespread phobias there is.

And yes, the experts are always saying that the only way you can overcome your deepest fears is by confronting them head on. But how would you feel if you were quite literally forced into confronting your overwhelming fear of spiders?

I’ve always been freaked out by the thought of waking up and seeing a giant bird-eating spider crawling on the wall opposite my bed. But how excruciatingly revolted would you be by the mere prospect of a spider crawling out of your ear?

Very, I’m assuming.

Even those who claim to be completely unafraid of spiders would be very alarmed by the reality that a six-legged insect had been dwelling in their ear.

Well, one Indian woman who had a spider living in her ear was sure it was simply an ongoing headache that couldn’t be eased by painkillers, but boy was she wrong.

She felt that there was something in her ear causing a obstruction, but she had no idea what it was.

She tried digging into her ear with her fingers to retrieve whatever it was, to no avail. And she even asked her daughter to examine the inside of her ear using a flashlight, but she couldn’t see a single thing.

The spider must have travelled a fair bit when it crawled into her ear.

According to The Indian Express, the woman in question was identified as Lekshmi.
