Brief Answer:
Yes,sinusitis may also cause nose bleeding.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.

Yes,sinusitis may cause nose bleeding but it needs to be evaluated further whether you are having sinusitis or not.

It can be diagnosed clinically by taking medical history and clinical examination with some routine blood works.

Generally nose bleeding are not serious and can be stopped without specific medical intervention.

However,you can use nasal spray (otrivin-xylometazoline nasal spray) to stop nose bleeding (if bleeding occurs again). It works by narrowing the small blood vessels in the nose area and thus reduces bleeding and nasal congestion.

But the best way to stop nasal bleed is to pinch the nose tight for 5 to 10 min and to breathe from the mouth during that time.

Drugs like Botroclot 4 drops into the nasal cavity also helps in stoppage of the bleeding.

In case, bleeding occurs again or if it is not stopping easily ,I will advise you to approach the ER, it may require nasal packing to control the bleeding.

Hope this will help you.feel free to ask if you have more queries.

I am 38 year old female. 5 foot tall, 60 kg and relatively healthy. I have been prescribed antibiotics for sinus infection 2 months ago with not much relief have had 4 courses. In past 3 days have developed trimenigal neuralgia and was sent for CT. CT retured with polypodial mucosal thickening involving maxillary antra bilaterally including 3 cm polp in left antrum and 2 cm polyp in right antrum. Left polyp extending into and occluding the ostium antrum. There is also marked narrowing of the nasal cavity bilaterally. There is a small concha bullosa of the left middle turbinate. The post nasal space is clear . I am off to GP this afternoon and am worried and just wanted to know could this be the reason for TN? Thanks

oh this is cool. well, i have bizzare symptoms for 2 years now. starting Feb March April each year Shanghai, when it gets dry and cold, i wake up each morning with stuff, mucous, in my lungs. Q: is it from my lungs -asthma / bronchitis? or is it post nasal drip dripping into my lungs? i never cough. ever. i simlpy breath in -expland my lungs -and the mucous comes up. also i feel it seems to be coming from that part of the roof of my mouth -i am assuming that part leads up to the nasal cavity? i dont have allergies, i think. my nose never runs. its never blocked either. i always seem to be pulling mucus from the roof of my mouth where that little punching bag thingy hangs. as soon as the temp changes to WARM SUMMER this all stops. but on any day when the temp falls 15'C -whamo its back on a dime. so i am wondering if my bronchial tubes cant sweep away mucous in colder temps? there always seems to be some thin mucous there all the time. and in the winter it gets hard. well -- any takers?
