A q-tip drove into my ear and my ear hurts so badly and was bleeding a little ?

I got out of the shower and I put a q-tip in my ear and I forgot it was in there and jumped onto my bed and the q-tip drove pretty far into my eat and I felt pain the second I hit the pillow and then maybe 5 mintues later I put my finger in my ear and the was a little blood on it. I can still hear and it feels like there is water in my ear.

    If it is not better tomorrow you should probably get it checked. It is possible that you ruptured your eardrum. Signs and symptoms of a ruptured eardrum may include:

    Consistent ear pain that stops suddenly

    Clear, pus-filled or bloody drainage from your ear

    Hearing loss

    Ringing in your ear (tinnitus)

    Spinning sensation (vertigo)

    Nausea or vomiting that can result from vertigo
