Emergency Medicine Specialist 's  Response
Did you have bleeding from the ear or did you have clear fluids along with blood from the ear or nose?
Well your case of trauma followed by headache , bruising around temple and bruising inside left ear (ear bleed?) would require a thorough evaluation to rule out any skull fracture (because of the impact), basilar skull fracture (because of bruising around left temple and ear bleed/ discharge) as well as any underlying head injury.
Investigation suggested: CT Scan Brain ( Plain )
Get the report and see a Neurosurgeon for further evaluation and clinical examination.

Hello dear...

Thanks for your query.
Your are having bruising just behind the ear ? [this is what we say "Battle's sign" ...there may be middle cranial fossa fracture and intracranial bleeding ]. Do an urgent CT scan of brain and consult a neurologist .Dont ignore ...

Take care .
