Good news: It’s not a migraine; the bad news: There’s a knife in your skull

After suffering from what he thought were migraines for four years, a man discovered he actually had a four-inch knife lodged in his skull.

The patient, Li Fu from Yunnan Province, China, had been stabbed during a robbery in 2006. He received treatment for his wounds at the time, but somehow his doctors didn’t notice that the blade of the knife had broken off in the attack.

The blade was finally discovered after an X-ray was taken to get to the bottom of his on-going “migraine” problem. (Let’s all give thanks the doctor didn’t order an MRI instead.)
