A woman from Scotland that just returned from a month of travel in Vietnam started experiencing nose bleeds. She thought the "congealed blood" was falling off a motorcycle recently.

But it wasn't blood.

She also noticed noticed something occasionally sticking out of her nose, but just sniffed it back up. Eww!

Then one day in the shower she noticed "it" stick out of her nose, hanging down to her bottom lip. That's when she realized that maybe it wasn't blood.

She took a closer look and saw that it had ridges and it was ALIVE.

She went to Edinburgh’s Royal Infirmary where doctors were able to pull the three-inch leech out of her nose and describes the experience.

It was agony – whenever the doctor grabbed him, I could feel the leech tugging at the inside of my nose. Then all of a sudden, after half an hour, the pain stopped and the doctor had the leech in the tweezers.”

“He was about as long as my forefinger and as fat as my thumb.”

I think I just lost my appetite.
