I'm worried about my partner, he gets nosebleeds several times a month. He also gets recurring migraines that usually hit his right temple. He says they only last a few seconds, but they feel like someone is taking a needle and slowly stabbing him in his temple. I've researched, and haven't found much. I keep telling him he needs to get checked out, but he keeps blowing it off saying he's fine.

I would really appreciate some insight towards my/his situation.

Thanks,
Concerned

  • Well I used to get nosebleeds several times a day and migraines 2 years ago, the nosebleeds subsided but the migraines did not. At the time I was exercising very heavily and not drinking enough water/drinking too much soda. Not sure if that helps. Any more symptoms? muscles spasms by any chance? Edit: From what I heard cluster headaches last longer than a few seconds, so unless he's just starting to get them I don't think so. I saw that like.. 5 years ago tho >.>
