No: Nosebleeds caused by high blood pressure is a myth. He should have his nose examined for polyps, ulcers, or erosions and he should have a blood sample obtained to check his platelets and clotting but most likely, it dry forced heat air causing his nasal mucosa to dry out and crack. A humidifier may be all he needs! ...Read more

Nosebleeds: High blood pressure does not generally cause nosebleeds; an exception may be hypertensive crisis, where the BP is very high and causes organ damage. But for the most part high blood pressure is "silent" -- there are no symptoms. Treating high BP reduces the risk of stroke and other complications so do please check your blood pressure to find out if you need treatment. ...Read more

You : You may be perfectly normal, or you may have either weakness of the blood vessels or problems with your blood that prevent them from clotting normally. Conditions that lead to weakening of the lining of the blood vessels can result in easy bleeding or excessive bleeding when an injury occurs. Also blood problems that result in excess bleeding can occur with liver problems like cirrhosis or hepatitis, kidney failure, or even genetic problems that result from problems with the normal makeup of the blood. If you have periods still, are they quite heavy? Have your nose evaluated by an otolaryngologist and cauterized, if it bleeds heavily in the exam room, consider a complete blood count, blood chemisty, hepatitis and liver panel. A coagulation workup by a hematologist may also be a good idea if these fail to realize the cause. It also may be you are perfectly healthy and these are normal findings. I hope this helps. ...Read more
