A 17-year-old girl is suffering from a horrific mystery condition which causes thick, stinging blood to seep from her eyes and ears.
Marnie Harvey's condition has baffled doctors for three years - and has left her virtually housebound. Now, desperate for a diagnosis, she is sharing her story in the hope of getting her life back.
Miss Harvey's ordeal began in 2013 when she woke up with blood spatters on her pillow. Her terrified mother Catherine, 43, took her to the GP - but despite several tests, no cause could be found.
For the next two years she was sent for more investigations and told to change her diet, eliminating food groups from sugar to dairy, in a bid to find out what was causing her symptoms.
In the last few weeks, she has also started to bleed from her tongue and scalp.
Miss Harvey, from Stoke-on-Trent, is thought to be the only person in the UK with this unique set of symptoms, causing doctors to dub her 'The Mystery Girl'.
Recalling the moment she woke up with her eyes bleeding, Miss Harvey said: 'Red, gloopy tears were dripping out of my right eye.
Miss Harvey frequently attended North Staffordshire Hospital and had further blood scans, which again, came back showing nothing amiss.
Believing the symptoms might be related to her diet, doctors advised her to try eliminating food groups.
Over the course of two years she cut out dairy, chocolate, gluten, wheat and sugar - but nothing worked.
By June 2015 the headaches and sickness had worsened. But what was to happen next was truly horrifying.
Miss Harvey had gone to bed with one of her crippling headaches when she woke up with blurred vision and pain behind her eyes.
Despite the negative results, the bleeding continued as often as five times a day and Miss Harvey said she felt like her life was on hold. She would struggle to open her eyes during the episodes as the blood caused them to sting. It forced her to give up a hairdressing course and retail job as she 'couldn't go and bleed everywhere'.
Miss Harvey's dream to become a nurse, to go on holiday and find a boyfriend are all shelved while she's passed from specialist to specialist.
Every day, purple and blue bruises appear all over her body, which hurt to touch and often swell up.
