A california man named Tom Wilkinbooth had this weird tingling sensation in his stomach that he couldn’t explain. He had a rude awakening when he woke up finding his stomach in severe pain, and he began to suffer rashes all over his body. Even worse, going to the bathroom became harder than ever. After a visit to the hospital, multiple X-rays were performed which revealed that some of the spider eggs had hatched inside of his stomach, and hundreds of spiders were crawling all around. Tom speculated that the spiders may have found their way into his mouth when he was sleeping. Many of the spider eggs had not hatched yet, and doctors warned that surgery needed to be done as soon as possible. After 4-5 hours of surgery, Tom woke up, and the doctor showed him a plastic bag of all of the spiders that were inside of his stomach.
Here’s a picture of some spider babies. Imagine these things hatching in your stomach.
Imagine being in this poor guy’s position, do you ever wonder if creepy crawlers are sneaking into your mouth when you sleep at night? It’s very possible, and it’s not something to laugh about. There are myths that say we humans eat 100’s of insects or spiders every year when we sleep. I remember watching a health show one time about a guy who had an insect crawl into his ear, and it almost caused him brain damage. Crazy stuff huh? So when people say “Don’t let the bed bugs bite”, they aren’t joking around with you. Cause night is when these things will crawl around and bite.
