Recurring Bloody Nose

 Recurring Bloody Nose

I got hit in the nose a couple of times within a week (while playing
basketball).  This was a couple of months ago.  I now seem to get a {*filter*}y
nose every few nights while sitting around doing things like watching TV.
This seems to only happen at night and doesn't happen everynight.

Is there anything I can do about this?  Could this be caused by other
things like stress or high-{*filter*} pressure?  The weather in my area has
seemed to be colder lately than usual.

I'm just checking here before making an appointment with my HMO doctor.

thanks for any info or suggestions ...

Harold,

Yes there are several things that can cause a nose bleed.  One of them being
high {*filter*} pressure.  However, since you have had recent trauma to the nose,
I would suspect a busted {*filter*} vessel.  I suggest you see a Ear, Nose, &
Throat Doctor.  He/she will look in you nose for the offending are and then
use a silver nitrate swab to cauterize the spot.  Simple and easy.  Oh, get
your B/P checked first.  Any fire station will check you B/P.

Good luck

Brian
