Thanks for posting this question in HCM
First of all let me tell you that a given medical problem can be due to various causes. Headache can be due to various causes too. It can be due to brain tumor, infection, problem in the blood vessels of brain, migraine and so on. Similarly seizures can be due to various causes too. There are diesases where patient can have both headache and seizures. The recent onset of bloody nose needs independent evaluation by one ENT specialist. My strong advise will be
to go for neurological and ENT evaluation. This will determine the exact cause and the management will be done as per the cause rather than simple symptomatic treatment for each symptom.
Hope this will help you
Wish you g ood health
