Question: ears bleeding


betzbet - Wed Jul 20, 2005 5:09 pm

I wonder if anyone has any information about my problem. I have been waking up with blood spots on my pillow. I first thought that I had been having nose bleeds at night but now I realized that occasionally my ear bleeds at night. I am not for certain it is both ears, I think it is, but I know that my left ear has been bleeding. I have no pain and I don't think I have any hearing trouble. I know I should probably make a doc appointment but I am frightened and wanted to hear some possible causes for this symptom first. :roll:

Bleeding from concealed places such as the ear canal requires an examination. Get otoscopy done under an ENT surgeon to determine the cause. It could be coming from a lesion of the eardrum or the skin lining the ear canal.
