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?

We have been living in China and just traveled to Philippines where we all got a bad stomach virus. The pain in my son is persisting, and even prior to that he has complained of stomach pain.
