I am 17 years old and have struggled with my

Patient : I am 17 years old and have struggled with my weight for many years, I used to just starve myself and occasionally induce vomitting, but recently ive been vomitting more to try and lose weight. Ive been vomitting after every meal this week and in the past three days every time i do i get sudden very strong nosebleeds. They stop after i have stopped throwing up. Im not sure what it is and cant find much information on the web and im too scared to go to my doctor about it. I should probably also let you know, i took an overdose of 80 clonidine tablets about three weeks ago, ive had no side effects from it as i drank charcol, and ive also suffered from nosebleeds all my life but not to this extent and not from vommiting before
Symptoms:  Nosebleeds
