Does screaming cause a bloody nose?

My 4 year old was having a temper tantrum, when I looked over at him his nose was bleeding a lot. Can screaming cause bloody noses?

Hi Kristen

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
Yes, the nose can bleed during an episode of temper tantrums because of increase in the blood pressure. Following which there is gush of blood into the small blood vessels causing them to rupture at their weakest point (micro aneurysm). Relaxation exercises will give you relief from anxiety episodes. As well drink plenty of water.

I ve been having a bloody nose on the left side of my nose. I have this bloody nose for 3 days and I haven t had a bloody nose since I was a child. The only time I would get a bloody nose is when my ex-husband used to beat me up. But that was about 10 years ago. I don t know if there is something wrong with me because it comes suddenly and sometimes I don t feel it when it comes. Can you tell me what this could be? I m a 39 year old woman. Thank you.

Yes I have been taking Aleve for joint pain and it was very effective but recently I have been getting nose bleeds. I am thinking this has to do with the Aleve so I have stopped taking it. Does MegaRed joint care have anything in it that will also cause my nose to bleed?
