More detail


Tough to answer w/o more details. A nose bleed after a head injury is not especially unusual, and may indicate a skull fracture or CSF leak. CSF is usually thin and watery, but can be blood tinged too. If the bleeding persists beyond an hour or so, call your doc or seek out an ER. Are there any other symptoms? If so, you might want to go sooner (bad headache, nausea, loss of consciousness...)

Have a concern re: two recent incidents involving nose bleeds. Was cleaning my left side when blood came gushing out rapidly... Rather than the usual slow drip. Have not had any head trauma or injury. I do have lots of stress taking care of my aging fa

Epistaxis.


Stress is unlikely to be the reason for this nose bleed; it may prolong the nose bleed if associated with long standing high blood pressure, but does not cause it on its own. Most common cause is nose picking. Many local and systemic conditions can cause nose bleed. If it persists, see your fp or ent.

After a head injury to a two year old, how do you know if your child's nose is running or if its the clear fluid that your told to watch for?

When in doubt consult a physician. The chemical makeup of cerebro-spinal fluid is different from that of nose dripping. The physician can evaluate your child and figure out what is causing the problem.

Do


Do not know about the actual type of injury. We already know that you have not had headaches, vomiting, loss of consciousness, amnesia or pupillary changes. Additional symptoms can include: nausea, ringing in your ears, feeling dizzy, slurred speech, confusion or feeling tired. Major concern is that you have felt woozy. The symptoms from a head injury can be subtle. I am not sure what to make of the blood in your nose - don't know the mechanism of injury. If you continue to be woozy, i would recommend a check up. Because not all the effects from a concussion may be immediate, self- monitor to ensure that you don't develop more symptoms. If there is a small amount of blood in your nostril and it is not on- going, it will likely resolve. Be gentle with yourself. Be self aware for signs or symptoms of a concussion.

Probably


If you have the head injury from passing out from the bleeding then you should get to the er quickly and you shouldn't drive yourself. The stomach pain could be an ulcer from which you bled. Clearly you need to be seen.

Urgent evaluation


A blown pupil following trauma could be from orbital injury, but, much more worrisome, would be something compressing on the responsible nerve in the brain, such as from brain swelling. This needs to be checked out immediately.
