Welcome to HCM,
Due to so much heavy pressure in vessels giving rise to this problem.
Same thing can occur in others organs as well like brain etc leading to serious problem, threatening to life.
This is like safety valve nature has provided so that one can take due precautions in time and prevent serious complications.
Now go for regular BP check up and record.
Remain in constant follow up with your doctor.
Ok and bye.
Take medicines regular and follow the advice given by doctor.

Cardiologist Dr. Haseeb Ashraf's  Response

Your mother is having uncontrolled hypertension due to which she is having bleeding from nose (epistaxis). Sometimes accelerated hypertension causes this problem.

Consult a doctor and get her blood pressure controlled. and in case she is taking any medicine which causes thinning of blood (like aspirin, clopidogrel or warfarin), her clotting profile should be ordered as soon as possible.
