A Chinese woman who has always had regular headaches was surprised to learn that a sharp object was stucked inside her skull.

The patient, from Anhui, eastern China, was told that a needle had lodged itself in her brain for at least 46 years, reported People's Daily Online.

The patient, 48, who is known by her surname of Liu, said she had suffered from regular headaches for more than four decades.

Ms Liu visited the doctor often, but had never found out the cause of the pain.

However, when she went to a specialist hospital, shocking X-ray images revealed a 1.8-inch-long needle was lodging near the top of her skull.

Doctors deduced that the needle had been there for at least 46 years.

Ms Liu was baffled and she kept wondering how the needle got into her brain.

And doctors could only suspect that it was injected into her head when she was a baby.

Ms Liu's daughter, who accompanied her mother to the hospital, told reporters from Anhui News: 'Doctors said the nail was likely to have been inserted into my mother's head before she was 18 months old.

'Due to the fact that her brain had not been fully developed at the time, the nail did not affect my mother's growth.
