Man ate Stones and Coins to Calm Anxiety

When the 54-year-old sought help from medics for stomach ache, they noticed that he was bloated. Docs had a feel of the problem area and found “something resembling small stones” when they touched his belly. Scans then showed a massive build-up of objects that were occupying the patient’s entire stomach. When questioned about his stomach mass, the South Korean patient admitted to often swallowing coins and pebbles whenever he felt anxious – despite taking anti-anxiety drugs to calm him down.

The next day, surgeons decided to extract the foreign objects one-by-one. They found that they included pebbles, coins and bottle caps.

 It turned out that the guy had ingested 4lbs worth of stones and bottle caps
