Strangely and sadly, this girl bleeds from her eyes and doctors have no idea what to do!!!
Had this been the 15th century, a case of unexplained bleeding would have undoubtedly been linked to religious stigmata of some sort. But! We are in the 21st century, and still there are cases of unexplained bleeding which have nothing to do with such superstition yet they remain a mystery, baffling researchers and doctors alike. The latest and most unbelievable case of unexplained bleeding is of a young 17-year-old girl named Marnie Rae Harvey. This girl bleeds from her eyes and ears too. This is her story.
1 Medical experts dumbfounded
Marnie Rae Harvey is a young 17-year-old who lives in Stoke-on-Trent, England. On sight Marnie seems just like any young teenager, but tragically Marnie is suffering from one of the weirdest and baffling of conditions. She bleeds from her eyes!!! What’s worse, sometimes the condition gets so bad that she starts to bleed from her ears too. For Marnie, life is tragic as her condition is painful too.
Medical experts and doctors are completely at a loss for words involving Marine. Her bleeding problem which has affected her for many years; ultimately spread to her eyes and it looks gruesome, uncanny, mysterious and downright unfortunate because Marnie isn’t able to lead a normal life and by the looks of it, there is no solution to her problem.
2 When Her Eyes Bleed, It Burns and She Can’t See
Marnie’s bleeding condition started 3 years ago in 2013. She was periodically affected by bouts of coughing up blood. It was in July 2015 that she was frightened out of her wits when she woke up one night to find her face covered with blood. It was her eyes, they were burning and they were bleeding.
She explains, “It burns and then if it covers the pupils of my eye I can’t see.” The paramedics were shocked to see her like this because they’ve never seen it before. She added, “When I got to the hospital they looked in my eye but everything was clear.”
Marnie’s mysterious condition was not restricted to her eyes alone. It was as if she was being engulfed in blood. When she bled from her eyes, it spread to her ears, nose and her mouth. Even her tongue bled. This was one of the strangest conditions which doctors have ever seen.
3 The Best of Specialist’s Have No Clue
Marnie has seen almost every specialist there is to see. Eye specialists, neurologists, gynecologists, pediatricians and hematology experts, you name it. She’s seen them all. NONE have an answer!! Marnie’s mysterious condition makes it a problem for her to socialize for fear of an attack and so she is confined indoors.
It’s painful to know that this girl bleeds from her eyes almost 5 times a day. She is near fed up with her condition and who wouldn’t be. Sometimes it gets so bad that her eyes and ears bleed every day for 5 to 6 days at a stretch. In March she said it bled for 12 days.
4 For Marnie Rae Harvey, Life Has Been Put On Hold
The only explanation doctors have for Marnie Rae’s condition is that she suffers from weak immunity and of course the rarest condition of Haemolacria, meaning blood tears. Almost every test for injuries, blood clots and hormonal disorders have returned clear without even the slightest of abnormalities.
For Marnie Rae, life has gone on hold. She couldn’t manage to do her GCSEs and so she is really upset that she can’t do her college. The young teenager said she always felt weakened by her condition and her body often ached. She says, “I wish someone just knew what it was so I could get my life back to normal.”
5 Perhaps Marnie Rae Will Be Cured One Day, But Until Then……?
Despite of being administered an injection at the risk of making her infertile; Marnie Rae’s bleeding hasn’t stopped. She suffers from the side effects of her medication like mood swings and incessant sweating but her bleeding condition continues. Marnie Rae says that the bleeding during menstruation and perhaps this fact could give gynecologists a clue to the reason for her condition, but until then, specialists have no option but to just carry on testing.
Hopefully Marnie Rae will be cured.She may be a subject of news all over the internet, but nobody should face such a condition. It is gruesome and sad. We hope and pray the next news we hear of Marnie Rae Harvey will be about her recovery.
