thanks for your query
as per your history,nose bleeding and unconsciousness are strong indication for cat scan post event
and you again start to have symptoms your doctor may advice you to get ct scan if he need after your neurological examination or just for rule out any underlying subtle brain injury.
Nasal bleed(epistaxis) management includes compression of the nostrils (application of direct pressure Direct pressure should be applied continuously for at least five minutes, and for up to 20 minute
you should also rule out possibilities of deviated nasal septum which cause headache and nose bleed.
take care.
