I'm having nose bleed after head injury but not hit in nose, normal?

The blood may be coming from behind your nose. And even if it's coming FROM your nose, the nasal septum is supplied by 3 arteries, so whatever the cause, you can lose a lot of blood if it's not controlled. ...Read more

If it still persists and it is troubling you, you should see an ENT for further evaluation. ...Read more
