"20 years ago I stuck a bead in my nose - and I forgot about it" (@ hannah.lham)
If you assumed to this day that you have nothing stuck in your nose, because it makes sense that you would feel it, a 23-year-old ticking user caused more than 8 million viewers to poke their noses just to make sure. A young woman named Hannah (@ hannah.lham) told in a ticketing video she recently discovered that she has been living for 20 years with a bead inside her nose. She says she has a vague memory from the age of 3 where she inserted a bead into her nose, but was sure it had since come out of him - though she does not remember the moment it happened. She says in the video: "When I was about 3 years old, I remember I put a bead in my nose and it did not come out. I did not tell anyone - I do not know why - and I forgot about it."
20 years have passed since then and recently, Hannah said, she has developed sinusitis.
She said she felt as if the right side of her nose was completely blocked and came to the conclusion that it was a "massive runny nose".
She described it as "very painful" and said she could not get it out when she blew her nose.
Finally she used a tiny camera to try to see what was going on inside - and spotted a small blue accessory.
She said: "I finally got it out. It was very painful, but a bead - a blue bead that has been in my nose for 20 years - just came out of my nose. For twenty years I lived with a bead inside my nose and had no idea."

In response to the video, people shared their own stories about random things stuck in their noses or loved ones.
"My 8-year-old daughter got a pretty big bead stuck in her nose for an unknown amount of time ... because she didn't tell me, her father or anyone else," one reporter added: "Oh my God! I stuck a Polly Phuket doll shoe in my nose and I couldn't "Take it out, I think, and I haven't seen it since. I thought to myself, 'Oh, it's probably already out,' maybe I should check it out again."
In another ticking video, Hannah shared the creepy documentation and also said that she put the bead on a gold bracelet, because after all - it's hard to say goodbye to a toy that has accompanied you all your life.
Here is the documentation from the camera (caution - harsh images)

How do we know if something is stuck in our nose too?
Although a condition like that of Hannah is rare, Dr. Neil Bechcharia, an ENT specialist at Mass Eye and Ear in Boston, told health.com that he usually "fishes" things from people's pastries that he has not had. They have an idea that they are there: "Some of the more common things I put out in my 25 years of experience are toilet paper, Kleenex wipes and cotton balls," he said. Tonight and then you forget about it. "
Unlike Hannah, many develop symptoms when something like this happens, says Justin McCormick, head of the Department of Rhinology and Frontal Ulcer Base Surgery at the Department of Otolaryngology at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson School: "Most people will have symptoms like rhinitis. "Acute or thick mucus coming out of one side of the nose," he added, "they may also have difficulty breathing through the nostril that contains the object." Another clear sign is a stinking runny nose coming out of one nostril, claims John Roach, an ENT doctor from Michigan: "Usually, within 7 to 10 days, people will develop an acute runny nose," he says. Most of the time it happens in children, Dr. Roach notes: "Parents take the child to the pediatrician because of a stinking runny nose on one side of the nose, and this usually raises the suspicion that it is not a cold."
Some people may even develop sinus infections if the object blocks the place where the sinuses drain to them.
Dr. McCormick explained: “For something to go unnoticed for an extended period of time, it will have to be laid in a place where it will not create any symptoms.
For example, it can be located in the lower cartilage of the nose - one of the larger air spaces in the nose - or in the upper part of the nose between the nasal structures called the middle turbine and the septum.
In most cases the body will identify the cause of the damage and will try to fend off foreign bodies that are stuck in it long enough.
His attempts create inflammatory reactions.
It can form an abscess (abscess) or in rarer cases it can dissolve the bone in the nose. "

And what do we do if it happens to us?
Did you recognize that an object was stuck in your nose or that of your children?
First, you can try to get it out on your own - as long as it does not cause pain.
Katherine Bowling, a physician at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, said: "You can try to get it out by closing the free nostril and blowing forcefully out of the blocked nostril."
If this does not work and you or your loved one is in pain, Dr. Roch recommends going to the emergency room. : "Usually we can take it out at our clinic. We have a collection of small tools that can go in there and take out any stuck object."
