HONOLULU (AP) - Dozens of doctors can’t explain why a Hawaii woman suffers from uncontrollable bleeding from her eyes and tongue.

Linnie Ikeda tells Hawaii News Now (https://bit.ly/1EKvwUF ) she’s had 11 surgeries on her tongue but it hasn’t stopped the sporadic bleeding.

The problem began in 2008 when bruises first started appearing randomly on her eyes, arms, torso and back. Ikeda says it feels like a hammer is hitting her bones before the bruises appear.

A few years later Ikeda started bleeding from the tongue, sometimes for days. Then she began bleeding from her eyes.

The bruising led to a diagnosis of Garder-Diamond Syndrome, which is associated with stress and anxiety. But that doesn’t explain the bleeding.

Ikeda says she’s hoping to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
