My Granpa has severe nosebleeds.... not normal ones, he's had it for years, he one time went into shock after his nose didn't stop bleeding one time. his bleeding rarely stops. and if it does, he tries to exhale with his nosrills as soft as he can, but then it starts bleeding like a fountain again..
he has gone to the hospital many times, he's even been up for many check ups, but they don't have a clue what is causing it, i really need help,he looses too much blood, he asked me if i can look for a specialist or something because he's loosing hope. & here i am, my first time looking for help in the internet, i found this website by google. someone, if you could help, i would greatly apreciate it. thanx

  • * Drugs - aspirin, warfarin, clopidogrel and others * Alcohol (due to vasodilation) * Allergies * Blood dyscrasias * Heart failure (due to an increase in venous pressure) * Hematological malignancy * Hypertension * Infectious diseases * Malnutrition (especially anemia) * Narcotics * Vascular disorders * Muscle tightness as caused by scoliosis (the tightened muscles cause blood vessels to be come constricted, resulting in nosebleeds from the same side as the tightened muscles).I pulled this from the nose bleed wiki off of google.. hope it helps.
