Patient :I just got my first bloody nose ever. What's wrong with me? I'm a competitive cheerleader and fastball player and over time have taken multiple hits to the nose, 3 of which broke me nose...although none have ever bled. I've been to a specialist and its been confirmed that I will need surgery for a deviated septum/nose displacement....that being said, why the sudden and first nose bleed ever? I sustained no trauma beforehand and the environment was normal.
