I have a specialist appointment in about 8 weeks. Should I seek more urgent help?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

I'm sorry this is happening to you, it sounds really uncomfortable. 

Nose bleeds can happen for many reasons. They include:

  • Irritation or breakage to the lining of the nose
  • Injury to the nasal tissue, which occurs more easily when nasal structure is not normal or the passages are inflamed due to a cold or allergies
  • Exceptionally dry nasal tissue
  • Picking or bumping the nose
  • Forceful blowing or rubbing the nose
  • A clot from a previous nosebleed becoming disturbed or dislodged
  • A foreign object placed in the nose
  • Tumors of the nose and/or sinuses
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Use of aspirin or other blood thinning (anticoagulant) medications
  • Other causes of tendency toward excessive bleeding, 


    Risk Factors

    A risk factor is something that increases your chance of getting a disease or condition. Risk factors for nosebleed include:

    • Irregularity in the structure of the nose
    • Abnormalities of the blood vessels in the nose (angiomas)
    • Dry climate
    • Winter, with dry, heated indoor air
    • Allergies
    • Colds
    • Sinusitis
  • Anon, are these nosebleeds and clots new for you? Do you have a health history that may connect with this? What kind of specialist are you seeing? 

Also, are you waiting 8 weeks to do a wait list?

If you can give us more information we can chat more! 

We look forward to hearing back from you!
