Bleeding from right nostril of a body builder

I ve recently been body building, and I do take supplements such as an increase in arginine and glutamine. I take tons of protein in a day ( Pro Complex if you want to see the Nutrition Facts ). However I am in Indiana, and the weather is changing. I do take a nitric oxide supplement before working out. But I know Arginine does help with blood circulation. The concern here is, my head sometimes throbs when I m doing any heavy weight, and I have gotten two bloody noses while lifting. Now it could just be the crazy wheather here in Indiana.But it is bleeding through the right nostril which is the scary part. Could my supplements be doing this, or more then likely just the wheather change from winter to spring?

hello, welcome to HCM. It is due to combined effect of arginine and weather change. Arginine increases blood circulation by increasing the NO. In spring the air becomes little dry and as temerature increases nasal bleeding can occur. You could also be suffering from hypertention. You must consult a doctor to get yourself evaluated. Wish you good health.

General & Family Physician Dr. Sujeet N Charugulla's  Response
Hello - Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
Quite visibly, the bleeding in your nostril is due to your excessive arginine intake.
Arginine liberates NO (Nitric oxide) - a vasodilator, powerful at that causing your vessels to dilate in order that your muscles receive more blood flow. Too much is too bad. Check the dose with your family physician. Never go with the dose indicated on the box- doses vary greatly with the individual and has to finalised only with a licensed doctor.
Weather, my friend is a minor possibility in your case as compared to general condition.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
Bleding from nostril can be due to extreme heat or cold climacteric condition, variation of temperature. It can be due to allergic condition. It can be due to high rise of blood pressure. Rapture of nasal polyp or growth can cause bleeding from nose. But as you are telling the climate is changing frequently that can be a cause. check your blood pressure and consult to ENT for detail evaluation.
Thank you
