A Chinese man found that a bullet that has been lodged in his head for 23 years had been causing his mystery illness.

Wang Tianqing’s symptoms had been getting worse over two decades, and he finally visited the doctor when the surprise cause was revealed.

CT scans showed a bullet inside his head.

Wang cheated death by just a few millimetres said the Chinese surgeon who removed the bullet.

"The bullet penetrated his skull and then stopped near his temple," said neurosurgeon Wang Zhiming.

"If it had moved a bit further backward and to the right, he wouldn't have survived."

But what puzzled Wang's doctors was exactly how the bullet got there, until the patient remembered a day in 1988.

Wang recalled feeling a heavy blow to his head before losing consciousness.

"I thought I'd been hit by a slingshot," he said.

"I saw a man standing on a hill and thought he'd hit me."

He woke up in hospital, where the medical staff could find nothing wrong.

The bullet has now been removed, and the convulsions have stopped for the man from China's northern Hebei province.
