Post-concussion syndrome can last for a long time. It can present with a multitude of symptoms including headaches, giddiness etc. A nosebleed can occur if retained blood comes out through the nose. However, if it is fresh bleeding, you will need to contact a doctor to see if there is no ongoing bleeding.

Hope this helps.
