Michael Spann was coming down the stairs of his Antioch home the first time he cried blood, according to The Tennessean.

The site reports blood was streaming from his eyes, nose and mouth — a scenario that began to occur daily when he was 22. Almost seven years later, the bleeding occurs less frequently — about once or twice a week. The headaches have never gone away. Spann wants to know why he bleeds — an answer that he may never get.



Doctors have been unable to determine a cause, he said. A neurologist at the Cleveland Clinic told him he had a very rare idiopathic condition, a disease without an apparent cause. He wonders just how rare the condition is, especially since a teenager from East Tennessee with similar symptoms was the subject of news stories four years ago, The Tennessean reports.
