welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Hypertension is one of most common reason for nose bleeding. In stress and anxiety there is tendency of increase in blood pressure, which may lead to nose bleed in your case.

Stress and anxiety can cause headache/chest pain due to muscle spasm. But as you are getting unconscious spells, your case need to evaluated by general physician and psychiatrist to rule out any serious issue and treatment.

Wish you good health and all the best.
