So, several weeks ago, I had an itchy spot on my arm. When I went to scratch it, it felt like there was something sticking out of the skin - it felt hard, almost like a sliver of glass or a splinter. So, I got some tweezers and I pulled out what looked to be a small fish bone - it was that sort of white/opaque color and very thin just like a fish bone.

Didn't think much about it but, then it happened again a few weeks later - same arm, same place. Pulled it out and didn't think anything about it.

Well, my DD had a spot on her leg that looked like a bug bite. I rubbed over it and I felt the same sharp feeling like something was sticking out. I tried to get it out with tweezers but, she freaked out so I left it alone for a few days.

After a few days it seemed like it was getting worse - sort of starting to look like a pimple so, I applied some ora-gel to numb the area and I pulled it out. It was the exact same thing - a fish bone looking thing except her's had a ball on the end (maybe from where it was festering?)

It feels exactly like it would feel if you were running your finger over a piece of fish to feel for bones - you know how when you run your finger over it, it's sharp and sticking out slightly. This is exactly what it feels like.

So, what the heck? Has anyone heard of anything like this?

i gotta tell you, thats the strangest thing i've heard all day (it is early though)

sometimes i find very thick but clear/very blonde and short hairs somewhere (i wont say where) and if hair like that were to be ingrown it would leave a big mark, red. but those can bend, can these bend?

or, you are mermaids

My DD would be thrilled if we were mermaids
:

These can bend a bit but, they're pretty small. Definitely not as long as a fish bone but, they have that cartilage feel that fish bones have - sort of flexible but if pushed, they would snap. That's what this feels like.

Next time it happens (if there is a next time) I will have to post a picture. It's freaky.

We do have a dog with white hair but no cats.

This definitely doesn't look like dog hair. It looks like pin bones from fish only about 1/4th the size.

Fiberglass? Hmmm, any idea what would be a source of fiberglass? I can't imagine anything around the house that has fiberglass in it?

Insulation is made of fiberglass.

I don't think it's morgellons. It's definitely not fibers. It's hard and cartiledge like. It really just looks like a pin bone from a fish.

I can't imagine anywhere I would come into contact with fiberglass insulation???

about 4 days ago I have the exact same thing that came out of my elbow. It looked like a fish bone about 1/2 inch long and it was flexible, I am disgusted. There is no infection in the area and the bottom inside of my elbow is the strangest place to get this. I sure would like to know also
