You have not mentioned any thing about glucose level.Please tell whether this level of 6.3 is HBA1c value or is this value in MILIMOLES and if it is in MILIMOLES,then whether it is fasting or postprandial.
This value of 6.3 MILIMOLES,if in fasting state,denotes a impaired fasting glucose.
Well let us come to the main point.
A leaking nostril and confused state of mind points towards high blood pressure and may be some intracranial pathology.
You must consult a doctor immediately and get him investigated thoroughly and find the cause.
