Nose bleed with headaches. Should I be concerned ?

Hi, I am have had my nose bleed couple of times in the last week. It is not like blood is gushing out and it stops soon. I had some headaches in the last few weeks. I am sixteen. I had swollen adenoid (sp?) and probably have minor allergy problem also. However, although I could not breath through my nose I have no irritation or such. Should I be concerned? Is this something serious? Please advise. Regards, JB

Hi Kasturib,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
I would recommend you to consult an ENT specialist at the earliest and get a nasal endoscopy done. There are various causes for nasal bleed, particularly in adolescent males. Use saline nasal drops 3-4 times/day till you consult your doctor.

I fell down some stairs and less than two days later, my nose bled for a brief period (I mistakenly took Advil about 9 hours before this occured) . I felt mostly okay, though I ve had a dull, constant headache where I hit my head. Now, almost five days into it, my nose bled again and now my neck is stiff. I am not nauseated, though I have no appetite and I am feeling very lethargic in general. Should I be concerned?

Sometimes I get the taste of blood in the back of my throat and on a more rare occasion I ll burp and taste a bit of blood or it may be iron.

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?
