Hi, my name is Karrie, & i am very concerned about my fiance, (who refuses to see a doctor), Bobby... he gets headaches regularly, & every 2 to 3 months, he bleeds from his right ear (never his left). he always tells me first, *it gonna happen in the next week or so, baby* , & hes always right, . he gets moody right before, his temper is less than desireable, but after it bleeds, he feels better. he has never had any head trauma, never been in an accident, & this has been happening for about 3 years. ( i found out about it 7 months ago, he has kept it from me because he knew it would freak me out) i have looked everywhere online for anything similar, but all i can find is *head trauma*, he doesnt have head trauma. what could be causing this? should i be as worried as i am? he tells me its nothing, been happeing for years, no big deal. well.. its a big deal to me. i would appreciate any feedback... maybe someone out there can ease my mind. (it just happened again last night, & started a new fresh wave of concern). thank you in advance for any help you might have.

  • Hi Kerrie, my name is Amanda, I have been going through the same thing as you spouse, I have been to doctors all over and they say its either a bug or dry skin. I don't think it is either, a massive headache happens then the right ear bleeds, then I feel somewhat dizzy but then ok for the rest of the day. I really wish that I could help you but I can't even get a doctor to tell me what it is. Its been going on for about 7 months for me, and I am very scared. My grandpa and my dad passed away with an aneurysm at very young ages, and the aneurysm was on the right side. My granma told me when grandpa had his rupture it came out his ear(s), my dad just slipped into a comma, and never had the bleeding. All I can say is good luck, and if you find out anymore information about his headaches and ear bleeding please repost something so I can tell my doctor.
