I'm having nose bleed after head injury but not hit in nose, normal?

I'm having nose bleed after head injury but not hit in nose, normal?

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

Painless dent on scalp after minor trauma, getting sinus/skull xray, had nausea, sinusitis and postnasal drip. Could CSF leak cause the sinusitis?

Unlikely: depends on what you mean by sinusitis. Minor trauma is not likely to result in a CSF leak.

Hard hit to head 3 weeks ago. Ct scan 2 hours after hit was clear of bleeding. Having bad head and back of the neck pain now. Worried about stroke.

Hard hit to head 3 weeks ago. Ct scan 2 hours after hit was clear of bleeding. Having bad head and back of the neck pain now. Worried about stroke.

Take reassurance: A stroke isn't likely to be causing head and neck pain; they tend to manifest with motor/sensory problems or speech issues.If you suffered that significant/traumatic a blow to the head this could be post-concussive symptoms. You really should see your primary care doctor as they should be able to help minimize some of the symptoms and make sure nothing more worrisome is going on. ...Read more
