My fiance has had nose bleeds quite freqently and last night he coughed up blood. He has probems with his stomach hurting at times and he mentioned the other day he had slight chest pains. He today says he worried because after these symptoms he feels somewhat achy and hes been sleeping alot. What may be wrong, please help, hes putting off going to the doctor and won't go. is this serious.

  • Selena:your fiance's nosebleeds are likely from the anterior(front) part of the nose,and his coughing up blood might be from that which drained down his throat.Any recurrent nosebleeds should be evaluated because the causes are sometimes serious but often not.As for his stomach pain,there's not enough information to go on,but if he had stomach spasms and gastroesophageal reflux,that can cause chest pain.Again,not knowing his age puts me at a disadvantage,but undiagnosed pain of any region of the body is really a reason to seek medical attention.Good luck!:)

  • Selena:I agree with "'med stud'',but knowing that he's 47 means that he's more likely to suffer from more than one thing,such as heart trouble(chest pain),arteriosclerotic blood vessels(nosebleeds),possible hypertension(nosebleeds),gastrointestinal disorders(abdominal pain),etc.In short,he needs a thorough examination by a good physician and soon!:)
