17 year old girl woke up bleeding from eyes and ears, then doctor make a horrific discovery
Now she reportedly bleeds from her ears, nose, gums, scalp, fingernails, and tongue...
17-year-old, Marnie-Rae Harvey, went to the doctors after coughing up blood. But after running numerous tests, doctors came up with nothing. Over the next few years, her symptoms started worsening when she woke up with blood pouring out of her eyes.
“Normally it’ll bleed for about five minutes then stop for an hour but it’s been happening for half and hour and stopping for five minutes. I have to keep getting up in the night but I’m sick every day about five times,” Miss Harvey told BBC Newsbeat.
Now she reportedly bleeds from her ears, nose, gums, scalp, fingernails, and tongue.
Her illness has gotten so bad that she is homeschooled and is struggling to find an answer she so desperately needs.
“We’ve had it confirmed that Marnie does not have a brain tumour or brain AVM – an abnormal collection of blood vessels,” her mother said. “Her blood tests come back clear and healthy, her iron levels are strong.”
“She has no tumours, no blood diseases and no blood clotting disorders. Her blood clots well.”
There is a condition called “haemolacria” which causes bleeding from the eyes, but modern medicine has yet to find a cure or cause.
It all began when the teenager, from Stoke-on-Trent, started coughing up blood in March 2013.
That continued for a couple of years until she woke in the night in July 2015 with her face covered in blood. She was bleeding from her eye.
Her parents called an ambulance. "The paramedics were just shocked because they've never seen it before," she explains.
"When I got to the hospital they looked in my eye but everything was clear.
"They can bleed and it can cover my face with blood and in seconds it's just gone completely white back to normal.
"I had blood tests and they came back fine."
For the next two weeks her eyes continued to bleed every day.
"Then I was in the shop and both my eyes and ears started pouring and then we had to have an ambulance again."
Marnie-Rae had multiple tests, saw more specialists who found she had a "weakened" immune system but nothing more.
Haemolacria is the medical term for tears of blood - but it is rare.
Causes can include injuries, clotting problems and tear gland disorders - but Marnie-Rae has been tested for this and she was cleared.
The bleeding continued and the teenager says she's had to put her life on hold.
"I didn't manage to do my GCSEs and then I can't do college."
She says she lacks energy and constantly feels light-headed. Her limbs and bones often ache.
