Eventually, the pain became so great that medicine stopped helping, and she consulted doctors at the Xiamen Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the report said.
“I even went to a temple to pray but it didn’t help,” Meng told CEN.
An ear nose and throat specialist discovered that a spider had been weaving a web in her ear canal. The spider was resting on her eardrum. Each attempt doctors made to remove the spider caused it to react violently, resulting in more pain for Meng.
The spider was eventually removed with a pair of tweezers. Meng believes that the arachnid may have crawled into her ear while she was climbing a tree during a hiking trip with her boyfriend.
