I haven't had a nose bleed in over 6 years and I randomly just had one, is this normal or a concern?? Thanks
Not a major one: Nosebleeds are common and usually provoked by dryness, allergen or irritant exposure, or physical injury to the nose. While a more serious cause would be unusual, developing new recurrent nosebleeds (not just one!) with no clear cause is a reason to be seen by a doctor. Your doctor would start by looking in the nose and may consider basic lab work based upon findings and described history. ...Read more

What to do if I have had migraines for years now, i just had my first nose bleed ever! What is going on?
May not be related: Many severe or constant headaches (HA) are called 'migraines' but may be another type of HA. To sort this out, I suggest a visit to a doctor who does osteopathic diagnosis & manipulation, prolotherapy or neuroprolotherapy. It's possible to sort out the real cause of HA with precise history & hands-on physical exam. Nosebleed could have several causes incl simply dry nasal membranes. Exam may clarify. ...Read more
