Hello. I am a 36 year old male and my nose has been bleeding for 6 days now off and on. It started on Sunday. I sneezed and all of a sudden blood started pouring out of my nose like you were pouring a cup of water. I pinched my nose and the bleeding wouldn't stop. After about 20 minutes I had my wife drive me to the hospital. It was coming out of both nostrils and going down my throat. By the time went got to the hosiptal it had stopped and we only talked to a nurse and he said to go to an ENT because he didn't know anything about and that we should go see an ENT. Monday I was drozzy all with pressure behind my right eye and the top of my head felt like it was burned. Tuesday we went to see a speialist and all he did was look up my nose for 2 seconds and cauterized one spot with the chemical sulfer nitrate. 4 hours later my nose was bleeding again. We would get it to stop then 30 minutes later it would start again. After the 5th time we went to the hospital. However when we get to the hospital it stopped bleeding. The doctors there cauterized it again in two different spots with the chemcal. Then they stuck a nose plug up into my nostril and said that will stop it and to have it taken out in a couple of days. They did blood work and said eerything was fine. 36 hours later blood started running down my throat and out the nostril with the plug. We went to the hospital for the third time. They took out the plug and called in a specialist(ent) to check it out. Before the doctor even look at me they brought in a welder looking machine and needles. So they already knew what they were going to do before the even look to find out what the problem was. The Doctor shot novacane into my nose 3 times and cauterized it with and electrical charge. (monopolar) Then she put some fiber to help clot the blood up there. She told us that will do the trick and that we had to see her again in a week. The next day my nose again started to bleed. Now, I haven't sneezed, I haven't blew my nose nothing the whole time this is happening. I spit out huge blood clots and the come out me nose too. I have headaches and still pressure in me face on my right side. We stop the blood, then again in a couple minutes it would start again. So we went back to the hospital where again they look at us like we are stupid for being there. They did nothing and said we have to wait all weekend to see another specialist. So, it is still bleeding off and on. I am frustrated and don't know what to do any more. Can any one help?
