Episodes of nasal bleeding with mucus on gently blowing the nose, yellowish drip on bending head with pain in eye and cheek. Cause?

Good day doc. Yesterday morning, I bent over while taking a shower and blew my right nose gently with my hand covering the left. when i checked my hand, it was filled with light red blood and a little mucus . yesterday afternoon, i placed my head on the table suddenly a light yellowish fluid dripped from my right nose. Same thing happened a while ago. I recalled I felt pain around my right eye and right cheek and had a headache few days ago. Doc,what is the probable cause of this light yellowish red nasal discharge on my right nose?

Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
You are most likely suffering from acute purulent rhinitis with involvement of sinuses.
Because of infection, nasal mucosa gets inflammed and patient may get blood on sneezing and fingering due to superficial bleeding.
You should consult with physician/ ENT surgeon and should get thorough check up for rapid recovery.\
You should also go for x ray PNS for knowing stauts of sinuses.
You should take broad spectrum antibiotics, decongestants, anti-inflammatory medicines on written prescription.
You should also take hot water steam inhalation for giving soothing effect to your nasal mucosa.
Get well soon,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Everyday day for the past 6 months I have dripping fluid out of my nose. It feels like a bloody nose but it is clear liquid. When I bend over to pick something up or out of the shower drying my hair or sometimes not bending over at all. What is causing this and should I be alarmed?

Ive been sick for 5 days now, and for the first time ive been feeling short of breath, no chest pains, so I chalked it up to anxiety, because all i have to do is calm down and not worry so much about whats wrong with me for it to go away, however I cant talk for too long because my voice ends up dissipating from breathlessness or at least i think its that (all i have to do is cough and i can talk again before it reoccurs), I was a smoker from 09-14 until I switched to vaporizers, which I mistakingly used on the first day and second day of being sick (I take vitamin c reguraly and the symptons werent very apparent), it was that second day i started feeling short of breath. My lifestyle is a sedentary one if thats any help. Also when i blow nose theres almost always blood, but theres no blood when i cough up phlegm.

Im on birth control, and had a normal period last month March 26th. I ended up having to go out of town the very next day, While out of town I had a very bad sinus infection resulting in a 10 day round of Augmentin, my last dose was on April 14th or 15th.. I arrived home on April 16th and have been sexually active ever since. I was due to start my placebo pills the week of April 20th. I never got it. Now I have low back pain, occasional heart burn, and tummy pressures. Is it possible that I ovulated late and possible became pregnant? Ive also had 3 neg dollar store tests.

im 24 year old male, 6 feet tall , 175 pounds. ive been having intense sinus pain for three days now, happens about the same time in the afternoon and it literally floors me, i can do nothing but hold my head and stay still waiting for it to stop, my left eye waters and the pain radiates from my teeth to behind my eye and my neck. than suddenly i hear a loud crackling noise followed by a long squeeling air noise and an immediate sudden release of pain. is this a sinus infection? or could it be allergies? ive never had anythign quite like this before, and ive worked as a scuba diver for years and am well aware of a sinus squeeze feeling, this is much more intense.

I have had the flu for over a week, so my dr gave me antibiotics 2 days ago. I have just blown my nose and the mucus has blood in it from one side of my nose. This has never happened before. I do have allergy and sinus issues and I have been blowing my nose a lot .

I went to the Doctor's today. I was diagnosed with a minor sinus infection, but I have a resting heart rate of about 120bpm and I'm having a little difficulty breathing. Plus, I can't sleep... I know I should be exhausted, seeing that I haven't hardly slept in the last three days. Maybe a max of five hours last night, other than that two or three hours.
