Zane Wedding was so annoyed by the “water in his ear” that he sat in front of the doctors and waited before the practice doors opened and he could see his doctor
A man had a cockroach pulled out of his ear after feeling it squirm for three days.
Zane Wedding went to a swimming pool and came back with a blocked ear.
He put a few drops in his ear reports CNN and took a nap on his couch
However, the next morning his ear was still clogged and it was still causing him great irritation.
And he was so annoyed by this that he waited in front of the doctors before the surgery door opened
Mr Wedding was told by his doctor that he may have water in his ear and suggested using a hair dryer to try and dry it out.
The weekend was then spent keeping the heat gun on his ear or resting his side.
The 40-year-old tried everything, including chewing gum and ear candling, but to no avail
Mr. Wedding tells CNN he felt dizzy as soon as he got up and heard fluid moving in his ear.
But whatever he did, he was able to get the “water” out when the ear-jiggling stopped, his ear was still blocked.
Mr Wedding, from Auckland, New Zealand, arranged for a booking to be made with a specialist as soon as he could get to the bottom of the problem
The specialist took a look inside Mr Wedding’s ear and said he thought there was an insect in it.
Mr. Wedding realized that every movement he had felt as fidgeting was the insect moving in his ear.
He said: “I thought straight away that I’d been pumping hot air into my head and cooking a cockroach in my ear canal all weekend. I got sick.”
Eventually, to his immense relief, a dead cockroach was removed by his doctor in a five-minute procedure.
“Every time she touched it, I imagined her squeezing a cockroach into my eardrum, so I wasn’t the perfect patient. It was an instant relief… I felt a pop as soon as the doctor pulled it away,” he said.
“As soon as I knew it was a bug, everything clicked together… That’s why the water moved even when I was still. It was a cockroach moving in my head.”
