You hit your head, and are bleeding from the ear? Six replies and nobody has said don't go to sleep? Sounds like a concussion to me.

I just entered the thread now, but I advise you to see a doctor ASAP. Bleeding from the ear after hitting the head could mean that you cracked the base of the skull, a possibly life threatening condition.

Dude, don't ever take a nap after a serious head injury. You might not wake up.
Well, I thank you for all the medical advice. I grew up in a very rough environment so I thought nothing of those injuries, I just added that anecdote to illustrate my difficulties in the house.
I did went to the doctor when my girlfriend saw me sleeping 14 hours straight and the bleeding ear. Call me stubborn, but I still waited three more days.
When I finally went, he sent me straight to a neurologist. What can I say? After he ordered and saw my head MRI
and other study an another cranium study he told me that only 1 out of 10 people with my injuries survive. So, the house finally went to the contractors, as I've been ordered bed rest for 15 days, no alcohol, no driving and no sex. He said that from what the MRI
showed, I was a walking miracle. An exageration, obviously, but, I'll listen to him.
