I have some minor bleeding from my right ear. I had difficulty sleeping last night. I had ringing in my ear last night and less today. I hurt to open my jaw last night. When I got up this morning about 9:00 a.m. I cleaned my ear with a qtip and some tan/yellow fluid was on the qtip. About an hour later I cleaned the ear again and the qtip had blood on it. I took 2 aleeve for the pain. I still have ringing. If I clear my ear like you do coming out of the mountains I can hear/feel air going through the Eustachian tube Eustachian tube.
