When i injured me knee i had severe pain in my knee but also got a sudden headache, vertigo type sensation and felt about to have a nosebleed. Why?

Hard to say: It is not really possible to tie all those things together into a single cause. Anatomically, a knee injury should not contribute to a nose bleed or vertigo. I would encourage you to start with a primary care doctor and get a good over all physical exam and go from there. Thank you. ...Read more

Two nose bleeds Fri. (nvr before), legs swollen enough to bruise, armpits feel tingling and left hand, which type of dr other than pcp?

Better with PCP: The PCP will be able to evaluate the situation by additional history, physical findings and may be test results and you may not need a specialist, if you do need one, PCP will be able to make a more informed decision. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
