How do I check for a bleeding problem if I get nosebleeds twice a month?

See an MD: Nose bleeds are usually not due to bleeding problems but local issues, e.G, dryness. You may try putting a little emollient in the external nares, being careful to not overdo it since you do not want the emollient getting into your lungs. If that does not reduce the frequency of bleeds, you should see a doctor for investigation. ...Read more

I presume that you have been worked up thoroughly to rule out potential causes. Since you are not without problem, you need to work closely with your hematologist re. monitoring and treatment before something serious happens. ...Read more

I : I am very concerned about your symptoms. I would like you to see a neurologist and have a complete evaluation of your symptoms. Your symptoms sound somwhat like a concussion, but the duration is very concerning and you need a full neurological evaluation. If you are having this severe of symptoms then you should not be participating in any type of sports until you are cleared. In addition, you should see your ENT doctor again to re-evaluate your persistent injury. But seeing the neurologist is most important at this time. If you have worsening headache, visual changes, vomiting, weakness or numbness then you will have to be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

It keeps the mucous membranes in the nose moistened and can keep you from getting nose bleeds. If you get them frequently you might want to see an ENT physician. Sometimes they can treat the vessels in the nose so that they do not bleed. ...Read more

See your Dr.: Any positive benefit of taking a baby Aspirin daily would be outweighed by the bleeding that you have. Check with your doctor to make sure that there isn't something else that could be contributing to the nasal bleeding. Most people don't bleed on that low of a dose so have it checked. ...Read more
