Prepare to never sleep again after reading this story.

Kansas City resident Susie Torres said she woke up one day this week thinking that she had water in her ear, describing a "swooshing" sound in her ear, CNN reported on Friday.

Susie Torres was in for a surprise when she went to see a doctor for an earache, and they pulled out a brown recluse.

Torres says she was horrified to learn that she'd been walking around with the spider in her ear.

'I went and put some cotton balls in my ears last night because I didn't have any ear plugs, ' she said.

Torres was later informed by doctors that she had a brown recluse spider hiding out in her ear.

"She then said, 'I think you have an insect in there, '" Torres told KSHB.

French business activity expanding in August: PMI
"August's survey data provides a clear signal that economic growth has continued to soften in the third quarter". The German Manufacturing purchasing managers index (PMI) arrived at 43.6 versus 43.0 expected and 43.2 previous.

However, Torres is made of sterner stuff than I, because she told the news outlet she wasn't particularly panicked at that point, despite not knowing what type of creepy crawly had made itself at home inside her skull. "It was like when you went swimming and you have all of that water in your ear". "I'm a little more cautious", she said.

She thinks it might have entered her ear while she was sleeping, so now she doesn't take any chances.

HealthLinkBC says that symptoms of a brown recluse spider bite include reddened, blistered skin, mild to intense pain and itching, an open sore, fever and chills, a full-body skin rash, nausea or vomiting and joint pain.

Common throughout the Midwestern US, they only bite if they're forced against the skin of their victim.

Measuring between 0.6 and 2 cm, the brown recluse - or fiddleback, brown fiddler or violin spider - carries a necrotic toxin in its bite. They'll inject necrotic venom, which kills blood cells and, in severe cases, can cause limb loss.

Their bite is rarely fatal, but it's best to seek immediate help once a bite is spotted.
