Nosebleed...don't want to Google
« on: April 07, 2014, 01:37:29 PM »
2 days ago I wrote I don't have any fear and I joked that I expect new symptoms to come up in one day, well they came in 2 days...

Today I returned from the pool and after an hour or so felt like bloody taste in mouth...went to spit, saw nothing and thought I was imagining things. 3 hours later, I went in bathroom and when I spit I saw a bit of blood...wanted to check if it was from my nose, looked at my handkerchief and I was shocked when I saw 2 huge patches of blood on it...I didn't even notice it when it happened.

I have a chronic sinus issue for years, since I always have some post nasal drainage and I have to spit a lot to stop it from making ill (sore throat for example). But, I've never had bloody nose...never.

I refused to Google so I don't have any idea what could cause this, and I've never had it before, so it freaked me out slightly.

Any thoughts?

It's just a nosebleed, nothing more.  I've gotten them my whole life.  Sometimes it's just a dry nose.

MOST anxiety happens at the subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state.  - AnxietyZone member Sixpack

Ok then, as long as the bleeding stopped (I assume it did) just monitor it.  Google will only make it worse, so don't go there.  If it's a chronic thing, pose the question to your doctor.

Never really saw it bleeding...just saw big patches of blood on my handkerchief so I guess only blood came when I blew my nose.

I guess it's burst blood vessel...just don't have any idea why. Will keep monitoring it though.

My sister and her dad have problems with nose bleeds,something to do with having thin blood vessels. You might have maybe knocked it and not noticed. Nose bleeds are quite common,I'm sure it's nothing.

I had my first nosebleed in 40 years the other day...I actually googled and it was NOTHING.  I have chronic sinus problems (just like you do) and google even said it was NOTHING.

Don't worry about it! :action-smiley-065:

The VAST majority of nose bleeds are caused by dry air, finger manipulation (yeah picking your nose), allergies and sinus issues.  There are groups of blood vessels in the front and the back of the medial wall of the nasal septum.  You may have had a small bleed from the posterior vessels.  It's VERY common and rarely anything to worry about.  The only way I would be remotely concerned is if the bleeding didn't stop, or was accompanied by other symptoms like huge unexplainable bruising and/or extreme fatigue.  If it continues, go to your doc and get a simple CBC to check your platelets, WBC and red blood cells.

I have two small bruises on my left hand and one bigger on my right leg...can't explain them really, never paid much attention to bruising...that's it for bruises.

I don't have fatigue at all, since I was swimming yesterday for almost an hour.

Not concerning.  I'm talking about huge bruises from little to no trauma.

The biggest one on my leg is 1-1.5cm in diameter...on my arm are half that size...

I think it has smth to do with sinuses, most likely nothing serious.

Thank you all for support!

I don't want to go too much into leukemia symptoms because it will just freak you out more but a little bit of blood in your nose is not the kind of nosebleed you get with leukemia.

I was having nosebleeds all winter and of course it freaked me out, but finally I just started cramming globs of vaseline up my nose in an effort to stop the bleeding and keep things moist.  Well, it worked!  (Amazing what we'll try when we want a symptom to go away, isn't it?)  Most nosebleeds are caused by dry or scratched noses, or a blood vessel popped from sneezing or getting hit.

I won't freak out, 'cause I am very rational when someone explains something rationally to me. When I don't know a thing about something, currently leukemia, then my irrational mind is out of control. I didn't even get leukemia thoughts on Google, but I searched this forum and bunch of ppl said they are afraid of leukemia because of nosebleed, someone mentioned here bruises and fatigue my mind connected the dots and ding, ding, ding...you have cancer.
