Depends: "Head injury" doesn't mean the same thing to doctors as it means to laypeople. But practically speaking, whenever you have an unexplained nosebleed you should have it checked out. The blood may be coming from behind your nose. And even if it's coming FROM your nose, the nasal septum is supplied by 3 arteries, so whatever the cause, you can lose a lot of blood if it's not controlled. ...Read more

Talk with your doc: This could be something common like allergies, sinus infection or infection inside your nose ... To something more concerning like high blood pressure. Since this has happened before & it's happening again, check this out with your doc. Good luck. ...Read more

BP concern: Headaches with nosebleeds are concerning for high blood pressure. There are several other possibilities which should be evaluated by a qualified provider. Adults should have a good idea of what their blood pressure averages. A family doc. is good for this. Even grocery/drug store machines are worth something. Accuracy is more assured if 2 people are measured at the same time so bring a friend. ...Read more
