All the symptoms mentioned by you may be because of anger in your boyfriend. During anger, body secretes steroids which are also called stress hormones and also catacholamines are secreted. All these hormones raise the blood pressure and put the vessels in spasm which is causing his headache, nose bleed and even chest pain. He has to learn to manage his anger. Very common and popular techniques are deep breathing, counting to ten, looking at oneself in the mirror or moving away from the scene of confrontation. He may also practise yoga and self healing techniques. If these do not help, he may consult a anger management specialist or a psychiatrist.
