By the time he got home, he felt that his ear was clogged.
“I used some drops to clean it up and slept on the couch later that night,” he told CNN on Thursday.
“When I woke up in the morning and it was still locked, I went straight to the doctor. I was waiting for the doctor [surgery] To open up was infuriating.”
At first, the doctor thought he might have a water blockage, so he advised him to go home and use a hair dryer to dry him.
But Wedding knew something wasn’t right.
“I left the doctor without any relief at all. I spent most of the weekend lying on my side or drinking a hairdryer in my ear. When I had to walk around I instantly got dizzy. When I lay down, I could hear he said, ‘The water’s moving around my eardrum.'”
“Over the weekend, I tried everything I could to rest – ear candles, jumping on one leg, chewing gum, going for a run – just about anything I could think of.” [to] Get a clear ear.”
Cockroach moving in my head
On Sunday night, the twitching stopped abruptly but the ear was still clogged, so Wedding booked a visit to an ear, nose and throat specialist on Monday.
Once the doctor looked inside his ear, according to Wedding, she said, “Oh my God, I think you have a bug in your ear.”
“In that moment, I realized that every movement I felt over the weekend was a cockroach moving in my ear. I immediately thought of the fact that I had been pumping hot air into my head and cooking a cockroach in my ear canal all weekend.” It made me feel sick.”
The doctor extracted the dead cockroach in an operation that took less than five minutes.
He said, “Every time I touched her, I would visualize her squashing a cockroach in my eardrum, so I wasn’t the ideal patient. I felt instant relief…I felt a pop as soon as the doctor pulled her away.”
“As soon as I found out it was an insect, it all zipped together…that’s why the water was moving even when I was still. It was a cockroach moving around in my head.”
