Detailed Answer:
Hi,thank you for posting your query on health care magic.

You have given the information of your concern very shortly.

If you are suffering from Nasal Bleeding at present,then I would advise you to pinch your nostrils for about 5-6 minutes and take breathe through your mouth.In most of the cases,bleeding will stop in this way.

Now,I would like to ask you few questions ,so that I can get a better idea of what might be the cause of Nasal Bleeding.

1.)Are you suffering from Cold/Cough?
2.)Did nasal bleeding started spontaneously or you tried to clean your nose by self or it started after you coughed/blowed your nose forcefully?
3.)Have you suffered previous attacks of Nasal Bleeding or this is the first attack?
4.)How much amount of nasal bleeding you suffered:Scanty/moderate/severe?
5.)From which nasal cavity,bleeding occured?
6.)Are you suffering from Fever?
7.)Have you suffered bleeding from other sites of the body?

Please answer the questions.I am waiting for your answers.Take care.

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

ive been having pain inside my nasal cavity for about two weeks, went to doctor and prescribed some meds. zpack and antibiotics also zyrtec. Have problems with nose bleeds not very common but do. Ive been feeling the inside of my septum very raw like their is a cut and been waking up with wierd looking mucus that washes away when i take a shower what could this be?

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?
