For the last 2 days I’ve been feeling shooting pains in one part of my head, a bit like a migraine. My eye on the same side felt a bit sore as well but I couldn’t see anything really wrong with it. It seemed to get better if I took my glasses off for a while, but then when I’m doing that I’m usually asleep, so I thought I was just tired or stressed or something.

This morning it got really irritating and my eye felt worse also so I went and had a good look at it, rolling my eye around a bit. What I found was an eyelash stuck under the bottom of the orb of my eye. By rolling my eye upward as far as I could I could just see (with my other eye!) the end of the eyelash poking out between the eyeball and the socket.

I managed to fish it out with a cotton wool pokey stick thing and I feel so much better now, but the thing that gets me is that the eyelash poking my eye or whatever was causing me pain that felt like it was actually inside my skull near the crown of my head.

So next time you have shooting pain inside your skull it may not be the alien implant activating your killing spree, but instead just something stuck in your eye.
