Nose bleeding, severe concussion

My fiance had a severe concussion on saturday (a week ago tomorrow) and has experienced 2 nose bleeds in the last 24 hours. Neither were major and both stopped shortly after. Is this something to be concerned about?

WELCOME TO HCM.
UR FIANCEE HAS PROBABLY GOT INJURY IN HER NOSE LEADING TO BLEEDING EPISODES. IT MAY BE DUE TO SOFT TISSUE DAMAGE IN HER NOSE. BUT U NEED TO TAKE HER TO AN ENT EXPERT FOR CLINICAL EXAMINATION TO RULE OUT ANY MAJOR DEFECT OR PROBLEM IN NOSE. ASK HER TO APPLY ICE PACKS TO FOREHEAD AND AROUND NOSE, TO PINCH NOSE IF IT BLEEDS AGAIN AND TO TAKE COLD LIQUIDS OR ITEMS FOR NEXT 24 HOURS.
