No this is the first time that I have had bleeding. I just have these cluster nerve like headaches daily when I lay my head down. I’m ok when I move around but always have this hissing not ringing but hissing in my right ear
Customer reply replied 7 months ago

Can you tell me more about the headaches?

I only get a fee hrs of sleep get woken up with my nerves bouncing back and forth in my head so I sit up and use a tense machine on my neck and it settles down.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The blood is very little like a scratch it on inner ear should I go to emergency

Have you had an MRI of your neck?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I had an MRI on my head

OK

No need for the ER with the bleeding--that's probably just a scratch in your ear canal

But you need the MRI of the cervical spine since there may be a disk problem there and what you seem to be having is tension headaches from neck muscles spasms because of that

Please let me know if you need any more information

I agree with you that is my next move. Thank you That what I think is happening. Thank you but they said I have to wait till Feb for an appt do you think I should get in sooner

Well it's not an emergency situation but you should ask your doctor to get the MRI as soon as possible

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
