Symptoms usually start with several sneezes,a back ache, and what resembles pressure on top of my head. The last nose bleed put me at the emergency rm. Help!!

Hi,
Nose bleeding generally could be due to simple causes like injury due to nose-picking, common cold, allergy etc or Rarely ,it may be due to some blood disorders,drugs induced, high BP etc .
If your nose bleeds again,pinch the nose tight for 5 to 10 minutes and to breathe from the mouth during that time.
You may also put an icepack and sit with your head leaning backwards.
Do not bend forwards.You can also use a decongestant nasal spray.This will help to stop the bleeding.
I would suggest you to approach the ER if the bleeding is not stopping, it will require nasal packing to control the bleeding or drugs like Botroclot 4 drops into the nasal cavity also helps in stoppage of the bleeding
If the bleeding still persists, consult an ENT specialist.
Thanks.
