Woman sees doc for stuffy nose & you'll NEVER believe what they found

Well, here's a story I guarantee you've never heard before! A Chinese woman who recently went to the doctor after suffering from a chronic stuffy nose got this shocking diagnosis: there was a bullet lodged in her head! Oh, and the kicker? It had been there for 48 years (almost five decades!!) and she reportedly had no idea. What? How in the world is this possible?!

The 62-year-old, who has only been identified in local media by her last name, Zhao, had been suffering from headaches, a chronic stuffy nose, and swollen lymph nodes for about 10 years before seeking professional help and making the shocking discovery. Can you imagine?! Doctors then extracted the 2.5 cm long, .5 cm wide bullet from her head.

But of course, the real question is how exactly the thing got there in the first place. Some reports are saying that it hit her in the head when she was 14 years old and she thought it was only a stone. Other outlets claim she knew it was a bullet, but only felt minor pain and decided to live with it. Huh?! Well for her sake, I really hope it's the former. But either way, it's downright nuts!

This is seriously one of the craziest and most unbelievable things I've ever heard. Almost half a century with a bullet lodged in her head? It's a miracle that she even survived all of that time, especially if she really had no clue it was there. Whatever the case, I'm sure she's relieved that it's finally out and that she can now live her life free of all the illnesses she's been suffering with for years!

Plus, it just goes to show you should always pay special attention to seemingly innocent symptoms. You never know what they might be indicative of!
