Last night, for the first time ever, I had a severe nosebleed, I am 56 years old. I have had a little trickle before, after blowing my nose, maybe two, three drops.
But last night I had a real blood nosebleed. It came out of nothing, I was eating my homemade chicken noodle spoup and felt my nose running, felt like mucus ( for lack of a better word,sorry), running out of my left nostril. I used my napkin to wipe it and to my big surprise, there was alot of blood.
It lasted about 10 minutes, it was not gushimg out, but running, even dripping on my shirt.
It freaked my husband out, he was ready to call 911, bless his heart. Luckely it stopped, but it scared the heck out of me. I know, some people have nosebleeds all the time, but for me it was the first.
What could be the reason? Does anybody know?
