I am new to this so please be patient with me as I muddle threw this. About 2 years ago I wasn't feeling well and went to the doctor they immediately placed me in the hospital because of low WBC's. They ran all ther tests including spinal taps with no reasons for why this was happening or what was causing the symptoms that accompanied it. I was discharged but still had fatigue, headaches and general aches and pains. As the days passed the symptoms went away except for the headaches. As the year or so has progressed the headaches grew more and more severe but not migraine in type my head just pounds. I turned to a chiropractor which had some relief however that was short lived. The past 4 days my left ear has been bleeding, not oozing or leaking but bleeding but not hemorraging either. Now the hearing is compromised and I have pain in the jaw are at the outside of my ear, no pain in the auricle, but pain behind the ear, scalp tingling, etc. I went to the doc and she said she didn't see any reason why it was bleeding so I called a ENT specialist but find out he doesn't take my insurance. So I call and find one that does but he can't see me until Monday of next week. Any ideas what might be going on, any suggestions, anything would be appreciated.
