Brief answer....better to get yourself evaluated by consulting a neurologist and getting a CT brain done
Detailed answer.....
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern.
Although you are not complaining of loss of consciousness or headache or vomiting or any seizure but since you had substantial bleeding from nose and still feeling tired,you must consult a neurologist and get a CT brain done to rule out any hematoma or intra cerebral bleed. 
You also need an examination of your nose to look for any trauma there.
I hope it helps,however you are most welcome to revert to me or any further query.
Best of luck
