This occurred over two weeks ago and she is suffering from headaches memory loss and sever nose bleeds . My question is could all or some of these especially the nose bleeds be related and should she seek medical attention ASAP. She has a doctors appointment Monday.

Hello legalgirl70
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Trauma to head may present with episodes of unconsciousness, memory impairment, seizure, nasal bleed, ear or nose bleed etc. She is having headache and memory impairment due to injury only. Memory impairment in form of immediate memory loss is seen after head trauma. Nasal bleed should not be ignored as it may be a warning sign. Chronic nasal bleed may itself cause serious complications. So don't ignore and visit the ER as early as possible.

take care
