Frequent Nose Bleed
Hi, I have been getting frequent nose(right) bleeds for about 3 weeks. I consultated 5 doctors (2 ENT) , nothing strong reason is caught. I have gone through many blood tests, 1 X-Ray and 1 CAT Scan. All blood results came normal. My blood pressure is a bit higher during/after nose bleed The CAT scan revealed- 1. Mild mucosal thickening in right sphenoid sinuses. 2. Nasal Septum deviated in "S" shape with small spur towards left side. Please help me through this.

You are one lucky person. That bleeding from your nose has saved your life! This bleeding is from arteriovenous malformations under your inferior turbinates deep inside your nose which happens only when your BP rises and acts as a safety pressure release valve. This has prevented you from getting a stroke!
