Dear Jacquelynford, hello.
Bleeding from nose and ears can happen in case of severe head injuruy. One important cause is basilar skull fracture. You should have a CT Scan of your head done because if fracture is present, it needs urgent medical attention.
Headache, if not due to any internal injury, will take few days to subside.
Please consult a Neurophysician and ENT surgeon for examination.
