I have been having nose bleeds for months It

Patient

Q: I have been having nose bleeds for months. It started when I was exercising. That stopped and then it started bleeding every time I would get upset. Now it just bleeds for no reason. Even when I'm just sitting on the couch. I have very good blood pressure and I do not take any prescription medications. I take a multi vitamin and a few other vitamins but that's all. Is this something I should be worried about? It is has been going on now for four months.

Symptoms:  Nose Bleed and nothing else
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com

Nasal bleeds are mostly due to local causes such as vascular congestion or nasal dryness. Sometimes it could start due to hypertension.

I will advise you to get it examined by an ENT surgeon to rule out polyps or hypertrophied turbinates.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards
