Ever since i was little iv gotten bloody noses super easy, i once had one for an hour but when i got to insta care it stopped so nothing was done about it. It seems like puting preasure with my my thumb and and pionter finger on the very bottom of the nose bone and pushing up so that blood can still flow out make it stop really fast. Also splashing cold water on my face and my nose helps alot, usually a blood clot will come out and it stops.
Iv noticed lately that i can feel when one is going to start because i hear a poping noise then the bleeding starts is that normal?

Frequent nosebleeds are very common in people who have HHT, but HHT is rare (est. 1 in 5,000 ppl or less). So you probably _don't_ have it. But check out the rest of the symptoms to see if it fits you. Nosebleeds are just an indicator- the usual danger of the disease is elsewhere. It is treatable though.Good luck,-Michael

  • I am 13 and for the past week I have been getting bloody noses constantly. Today is Sunday 9:30 AM and I already had one, right when I woke up. Saturday, I had only one. Friday, I have FOUR. Then one-two at the max- for the rest of the week. Also, I have runny noses. I'm REALLY scared. Someone please help me... I don't like bloody noses. AT. ALL.
