She claims that first pimples appear on her legs and get bigger with time until they burst to push out sharp objects.
Several cases about people swallowing needles, nails and similar objects due to certain conditions have been reported in the past few months. In one horrifying case needles were pushed inside a child’s body causing her death.
But in a mind boggling case from Fatehpur in Uttar Pradesh, a woman says she has no idea how needles, pins and syringes removed from her limbs by doctors ended up there in the first place. 35-year-old Anusuiya Devi claims that such sharp objects have been simply appearing in her limbs since 2012.
The woman is begging doctors to help her since excruciating pain has left her struggling to walk, sit and stand for the past five years. Although the widow insists she doesn’t harm herself, medics believe she has been inserting the objects in her own body.
Anusuiya Devi says pimples appear on her arms and legs and grow bigger with time until they burst and push out a needle or pin. Her brother who has lived with Anusuiya since she lost her husband also said he doesn’t believe she harms herself.
Doctors describe her case as never seen before after scans revealed 70 different kinds of iron needles in her legs below the knees. While they are baffled how she coped with pain for such a long time, medics are unable to confirm how the needles enter her body.
