Doctors were shocked when they discovered a live cockroach crawling around inside a woman’s Skull.
Selvi, 42, from Injambakkam, India, woke up in the middle of the night when she had a crawling sensation in her right nostril, this soon became a burning sensation in her head.
Doctors quickly decided to use a nasal endoscopy to find out what was causing this pain in Selvi’s head and were shocked to find a cockroach sitting in the skull base between her eyes.
They used clamps and a sucker to get it out with the bug miraculously still alive.
Doctors said if Selvi had ignored the scratchy sensation, the insect would have died, causing an infection close to her brain.
Selvi did not want to release her full name, but said “My immediate reaction after feeling that crawling sensation in the right nostril was to brush it off in half sleep.
“But before I could do anything, it went inside. I could not explain the feeling but I was sure it was some insect.
“There was a tingling and crawling sensation. Whenever it moved, it gave me a burning sensation in my eyes.
“I spent the entire night in discomfort, sitting up and waiting for dawn to go to Stanley hospital after getting the reference of a doctor from my employer.”
Doctors said that if Selvi had ignored the sensation in her head, that the insect would have died and caused an infection close to her brain.
Crazy right?? I know I will be paranoid going to bed to night.
