Next time you reach for an aspirin, ask yourself: "Have I been shot at recently?"

19-year-old Juanye Jones from Volusia County, Florida went to the hospital Wednesday night complaining of a headache. When doctors examined him, they had a pretty good hunch as to why: he had a bullet lodged in his head.
You think you'd notice that, right? Even the other people in the Florida Hospital Oceanside ER were confused.
“There was a young fellow in there, about 18-years-old. I thought he was in there for something minor and then the police showed up," witness Wayne Saddler told the Palm Beach Post.
“I hear he has a bullet in his head. He had a headache and now he has a bullet in his head."
It could happen to anyone.
Well, actually no. turns out, Juanye had been present at a shooting on Monday at Bethune-Cookman University. Three students had been injured after a shooter opened fire from an SUV, but only two immediately went to the hospital. The third, Jones, thought the bullet had just "grazed his ear," and didn't want to seek a medical opinion.
Even on Wednesday, when doctors found his skull had been breached and recommended further treatment, Jones left the hospital, and it is possible that he is still walking around with those fragments.
Is he just planning on treating his headache with pills? Motrin may be little, yellow, and different, but bullet fragments are little, silver, and painful. Get those things out!
