I had a bloody nose today for about 30m. In the middle of it I had a big chunk of blood come out that was about 3inc big and one wide. Is it something?

Nose bleeding: Hello, nose bleeding or epistaxis is a very common condition. The bleeding is best controlled by holding and pinching your nose as close to the cheek with your nose pointing up. The pressure and elevation will decrease the blood flow. Hold this position for at least 5 minutes. After the bleeding stops, the blood clots that remain in the nose will drop back into the throat which is what you saw. ...Read more

I'm not sure where the streak of blood in my phlegm came from. If it was my sinuses would I have a bloody nose? This only happened once

I'm not sure where the streak of blood in my phlegm came from. If it was my sinuses would I have a bloody nose? This only happened once

Blood in mucus: Unlikely that an isolated occurrence of blood in your phlegm/mucus is a concern. From time to time the mucus membranes of the nose/throat can bleed as a result of dryness, medication use, trauma, infection. If it is regular or heavy or associated with other symptoms, then have it checked out. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Ok do I didn't bite my lip bt I got a bloody nose and accidently swallowed some blood am I ok how much blood does it have to be to be poisonus?

Don't fret: Your blood isn't poison. It sounds like it isn't bleeding now. If your nose bleeds hold your nostrils between fingers for about 10 minutes. Sit up & hold your head & neck forward so the blood doesn’t just flow down your throat. If you are able to – place a moistened cotton ball over the area that is bleeding. If you can’t control the bleeding after 20 minutes – seek med help. Take care. ...Read more

Had bloody nose earlier, felt anxious and heart feels fast all day. Checked blood pressure 125/79. What could be wrong?

This question is prompted by my cursory review of your presentation with limited information. If the epistaxis does not stop with applied pressure and your heart rate continues to remain high, see your doctor. ...Read more

I had a severe bloody nose yesterday and had to go to the doctor. Blood came out of my eye Today the same eye is in pain so bad it hurts when I blink.

GO TO ER NOW: I wouldn't take the time to wait for an appointment. Given the fact you are in that much pain that it hurts to blink, I'm concerned that you have increased pressure (likely from an active bleed) around your eye. I think you need a CT scan now, and a possible scoping of your nose. Go to your best area ER. Hopefully they will have an opthalmologist and an ENT specialist on call. ...Read more

Turbinate hypertrophy, bloody nose and spitting a bit of blood. I'm scared! Help. I've also been moving homes, exposed 2 chemicals and dust cause?

Turbinate hypertrophy, bloody nose and spitting a bit of blood. I'm scared! Help. I've also been moving homes, exposed 2 chemicals and dust cause?

Rhinitis: I assume you had your nose / sinuses evaluated before to get that diagnosis of turbinate hypertrophy. That also means you might have chronic rhinosinusitis. Most of the time in developed countries like in the us, it's due to environmental allergies. When you have chronic inflammation due to allergies, dust from moving can irritate your nasal mucosa and cause it to bleed. Come back to see your doc. ...Read more

IM 25 weeks pregnant and have had a severe cold / cough this week. Bloody nose the past 3 days, mucus is a very dark green. Today my phlegm had blood?

See a doctor: With these sorts of symptoms, you need answers. I would worry that your platelet count might have dropped as a result of the viral infection - allowing the blood to become thinner, such that you'd have nose bleeding and blood in the sputum. Hopefully you're plugged into an Ob/Gyn practice - I would call them and try to get seen today. If it's after hours and you're not doing well- go to the ER. ...Read more
