Hi Sam,

You need to consult your ENT specialist rather than worrying. As you do not have any other symptoms apart from bleeding it is better to get a nasal endoscopy done to find out the cause of the bleeding and treat it in the same sitting. Till then use xylometazoline nasal drops (not more than 5 days), drink plenty of warm water and avoid smoking/ nose blowing if any.

For past 2-3 months I experience (only left side of head/nose): headaches + dried blood inside left nostril. Also when in bed and going to sleep and I turn to my left side, experience some dizziness. Headaches are not constant thruout the day but they do appear everyday. Headaches are magnatude level 6 or 7 out of 10. Not sure if relavant, but coinciding with these symptoms I stopped injecting Testosterone Cypianatye. Appreciate thoughts or if you have any questions to my symptoms, please ask.
