Nose bleed in middle of night?

Check your BP: If the nose bleed is always from the same nostril it could be due to a superficial vessel, or dryness in the nose. Apply saline nasal spray to keep the nostrils moist, check the blood pressure to make sure it is not elevated as this is a common cause of increased frequency of nose bleeds in adults, eliminate over the counter medications that predispose to bleeding like anti-inflamatories, aspirin.

What is wrong if you get a nose bleed in middle of the night?

What is wrong if you get a nose bleed in middle of the night?

Common: Epistaxis is common in everyone. 80% of people experience this in their lives. A common cause is dry, hot air like inside the home causing nasal dryness and crusting. The nasal tissue cracks and bleeds easily. Treatment includes humidification of the air, and nasal moisturizing with a variety of otc nasal saline gels or mist spray. It's not a major health hazard, but should see an ENT.

I traveled across the u.S. By plane on monday as and I experienced a nose bleed on tues am. I flew home last night and I woke up with a nose bleed.

Probably dry air: More than likely, your nosebleeds are not serious, but rather due to dryness in the plane cabin. If you do not have other associated bleeding tendencies, such as bleeding gums while brushing your teeth, easy bruisability, then I would suggest you take a q-tip with vaseline and apply in your nostrils before flight. If this is persistent, you may need to see an ENT to have the vessel cauterized.

Blood pressure: Most of the time, high blood pressure does not give any symptoms. Some people may feel some headache or dizziness. Some do get nose bleeds. May feel tired or just "not right". Should get checked to see what may be giving her the problem.

Epistaxis: Great decision to stop using e-cig. You're doing yourself a great favor. As for your nose bleeds (epistaxis), as long as they stop, you're most likely fine. But it's still a good idea for your Family Doc or even ENT to take a peek up there to make sure nothing else is going on. In meantime, use spare non-vaping time to eat right, exercise regularly & get enough sleep. Wrap it up each & every time.

Why does my nose bleed after a night of drinking alcohol?

Why does my nose bleed after a night of drinking alcohol?

Nosebleed: One possibility is that during the alcohol binge you got into a fight, and someone punched you in the nose. Alcohol can also act like a blood thinner, causing your platelets to be less "sticky" and not clot well. This is apparently more common in male drinkers than women. If you drink often, you may even have less platelets, period. Http://pubs. Niaaa. Nih. Gov/publications/arh21-1/42.pdf.

My son got a nose bleed in his sleep last night. While cleaning him I noticed the very very strong metallic smell. Does that mean he's anemic?

My son got a nose bleed in his sleep last night. While cleaning him I noticed the very very strong metallic smell. Does that mean he's anemic?

No: A metallic smell after a nose bleed is very common and means nothing. Be sure your son does not have a foreign body in the nose causing the nose bleed.

Common: Dry heat during the winter months can often join with airborne irritants to trigger nose bleeds in infants or adults. This can masquerade as a cold. If the humidity is below 30% in babies sleeping environment a humidifier may be needed. Nasal saline before bed or a nasal gel (made by NASAL products) can reduce the frequency.

My 7 year old girl had nose bleed 2 weeks ago and yesterday night she had it again. She has slight running nose few days ago. Should I be worry?

Humidity: Not sure where u live. Dry weather is the most common cause of bleeding nose apart from nose picking which can lead to bleeding. If this is true, use a humidifier at night in her bedroom. Use saline drops when she goes to bed. If this continues after her runny nose is gone, have he checked out with her pediatrician. Do not let her eat too much chocolate or fried foods or junk food

Nose bleed: An occasional nose bleed is not be concerned about. For good health: Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form.
