severe nosebleed was given what i can only guess was a clotting medicine at the doctor this morning. but now i'm feeling achy and very weak?

Nosebleed: I doubt the two have much to do with one another. It is possible that you had a viral infection which is causing the achy and weak sensation, bu this typically would not give you a nosebleed. Feel better.

May have bleed: Significantly . Acute blood loss can lead you to have low blood pressure and increased heart rate . If condition is not corrected , it may lead to a serious condition called shock. I do not believe you are going through this but it is something to think about . Take more fluid , if symptoms persists , see your doc of go to ed.

As an old football player, is a weak knee normal?

Yes.: It is extremely common, especially if you were a young football player. There is a lot of pivoting in football, as well as strain on the knees. Minor injuries occur to the meniscus (cartilage) that accumulate over time. Good quad strengthening and hamstring stretches can stabilize the knee.

I was diagnosed with lupus (sle) in 1992 and polymyositis in 2006. My shoulders are very weak and so are my hips, is this normal?

Yes: The muscle weakness is part of polymyosits. Your treatment needs to be individualized for the muscle weakness with appropriate does of medications and steroid sparing drugs. Biologic agents are an option in individual cases. Suggest seeing a faculty member in rheumatology at a nearby medical school re possible use of biologic.

How might an emergency room doctor treat a child's nosebleed?
1 doctor answer • 4 doctors weighed in

Several ways: It's not any different then how it would be treated in an adult. Compression is the first thing. If that doesn't work a topical vasoconstricter (like afrin) is used. Cauterization may be attempted with an electrocautery or topical chemical cautery (ex. Silver nitrate, floseal). Nasal packing would be the last thing - but it's uncommon to have to do that with children.

REASONS-PLENTY: From irritation of the lining of your stomach, to foods, to esophageal or gallbladder problems, alcohol, smoking, stress...
In other words, please see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.
