In the list of stories that you never want to hear or believe are actually true this one probably tops the list for a lot of people. 

A woman who started suffering from a worsening headache headed to the doctor only to find that she had a spider who had been living inside her ear and boring deeper into her head. 

Lekshmi who lives in India said...

I was terrified as I could feel movement of a creature in my ear. The acute ear ache followed by sharp pains suffocated me. I couldn’t think of anything and was petrified when the doctor confirmed presence of a spider in my ear.

This video shows the moment they were able to coax the spider out of the ear...

As the Indian Express reportsIndian Express reports...

This is the horror moment doctors examined a patient with a headache - and were confronted by an enormous SPIDER which crawled out her ear. Lekshmi L, 49, woke up from an afternoon nap on her veranda with a "slight discomfort" and tingling sensation in her right ear. Suspecting an obstruction, she tried to dig around in her ear with her finger and asked her daughter to look inside using a torch. But when she developed an excruciating pain in her head her husband rushed her to Columbia Asia Hospital in Hebbal, India, where doctors spotted a LIVE spider.

We can't even begin to imagine how bad this would feel. We get scared enough seeing a spider in the corner of the room never mind in our ear.
