At the diner this morning, my waitress said she woke up this morning with a headache and was bleeding from her right ear, and right nostril. Then she lifted her right eye lid to show blood in the upper part of her right pupil. She said she always has numbness in her right hand, so that wasn't new. She took two aspirin for the headache. The bleeding had already stopped, accept for what was visible in the pupil of her right eye. Any thoughts?
You have not mentioned about the age of your waitress. Whether she had any bleeding tendencies before? Aspirin by itself prevents coagulation of blood. This bleeding must have been secondary to ingestion of aspirin. Advise her to avoid aspirin in future. Please do consult your physician for further evaluation.
