Nose Bleeds

I think I'm a crack head, and I don't even know it...

I've woken up twice this month bleeding profusely from my left nostril (same nostril both times). And this isn't oozey blood, this is pouring out... I wouldn't be surprised if somebody's been putting crack cocaine on my pillow while I sleep, and I'm waking up after I snort it...

Does anybody know any particular thing that could cause this? It happened for the second time today, and it somewhat worries me.

By the way, it happened between 7:15 and 7:30 both times. I've got no idea if this has any relation to it...

Generally nose bleeds happen because the skin inside is thin and dry. The dryness weakens the thin skin then it breaks somehow. Depending on how thin the skin is it could break from something as easy as a deep breath. Allergies tend to make nosebleeds more common as they irritate the tissue inside the nose. Usually it's more common in the winter because of the way the cold weather will dry out your nose. (Just like chapped lips are more common in the winter).

The only thing I can think of off of the top of my head that might help is a large glass of water. Keep water by your bed and drink it throughou the night. This should help keep you hydrated which will in turn (by keeping your lungs moist) start to help keep your nostrils less dry if you breath through your nose in your sleep. You could also try teaching yourself to breath through your mouth more in your sleep.

my brother used to get nose bleeds all the time but he never figured out why also he was about 17-20 years old so if ur around that age it could be some thing natural so i wouldnt worry about it too much.

That's true, I have been breathing through my nose when it happened.

Alright, a glass of water. That's simple enough...

Thanks.

Edit:// two more posts while I was posting...

I think I get enough Iron... I ate a bigass hot dog last night, so I don't think that would be the problem.

I'm not 17-20... but did they stop eventually? I'm sick of dripping blood across the floor while I run to the sink...

if you are getting nose bleeds alot. Most of the time its due to lack of iron. Which is why when wrestlers are making weight they often times take iron pills.

no im not saying your starving or anything i am just saying try eating a little more iron rich foods.

The water thing might also work

who knows

some thoughts for you


~Edit: hotdogs are not iron enriched food~

I used to get alot of nose bleeds, especially when it is hot out. I still do sometimes. Eat healthier and use a nasal spray to moisturize your nostrils before you go to bed.

I am extremely prone to nosebleeds, and I get them all the time. I have ruined sheets on several occasions from nosebleeds that I get in my sleep.

Here's the trick: Pour water in your nose. It will help moisturize the skin inside. Avoid picking the crusted blood out (unless it's TOTALLY clogging your airways and it's itchy), because that will only make things worse. I usually get my nosebleeds from when I bump my nose and one of those sharp razor boogers cuts me badly...ouch.

Anyway, I hope I helped you out on this...I get them frequently, and I feel your pain...I have gotten them this bad a few times.

Just maybe you have a brain tumor, you should get that checked out. Brain tumors can lead to lots of nose bleeds.

I know high blood pressure can cause nose bleeds among other symptoms.
Only 2 in a month isn't necessarily alarming though.

It could be:
- dry air. Sometimes air conditioning can dry the air a great deal.
- an allergy.
- a blood thinning medication like aspirin.

Then like I said it could be a blood pressure issue, or something worse like a polyp or tumor.
In any case I would consult a physician, instead of retards like me.

(Also, the fact that it happens at the same time in the morning all the time, points to demonic possession. Have you been waking up on the ceiling, or vomiting pea soup? I would also consult a shaman or skilled exorcist.)

My son had a bad problem with nose bleeds and we took him to an ears, nose and throat Dr. They ended up carterizing (sp?) some thin vessels that were pretty far up his nostril. The Dr. said that these are caused by the inside of the nose getting dried out and the vessel becomming so thin that even when he was sleeping it would just break and he would have bad nose bleeds. You might want to think about heading over to one of those specialist and have them do that if you are getting them that frequent. It takes all of about 30 seconds with a long Q-tip and thats it. :)

I actually have extremely low blood pressure (not to the point where its unhealthy)... it runs in the family.

That is a viable solution, and the one I choose to pursue first.

Alright, I'm going to go ahead and claim diplomatic immunity. Not only did I wake up on about 2 and 1/2 hours of sleep, I had woken up not too long before posting this... and I am not a morning person.

If the problem persists, I'll be sure to look in to that.

Thanks everybody :thumbsup:
