nose bleed

I am 21 and this morning my nose started bleeding. I bled for over 20 minutes, heavily, and the blood was bright red. About 15 mins into the nosebleed, i felt like something was stuck at the back of my nose/throat. When I lifted my head, I felt something in my mouth so I spit it out and it was a bright red blod clot. What's wrong with me?

To Whom Concerns this depends greatly upon your medical health if you are taking blood thinners you need to ask your cardiologist to see if you can stop them & ir you are on oxygen due to COPD you need to ask your lung doctor for A humidifier preferrrable a cool humidifier that you can hook up to your oxygen but most of all clamp your nose you do need to get into the emergency room ASAP do not tilt your head back if you tilt your head back you can easily choke on your own blood and you will have more blood clots & river of blood will come out of your nose you will need to get to the Emergency Room ASAP Possible medical diagnoses is A ruptured Mucus Membrane in your nostrile from exsesive blowing your nose too hard or picking your nose or An injury from sticking an object into your nose or dry or cold air. get to the emergency room ASAP

Me back, from comment no.80. Exciting news, as i used Mucosolvan syrop (an expectorant that liquefies mucus in trachea and bronchi-i'm not trying to advertise anything here) , on a cotton stick. This made the whole pile of dried blood ,inside both nostrums to disappear 70% in just one day, without having my nose bleeding again. I hope i was kind of helpful and this will not happen to me again, as i will extremely careful with anticoagulants from now on. :)

I had a severe nosebleed 24 hrs ago, which lasted more than 2 hrs...i know all about the reasons it happens. I take one aspirin every day , so this makes clotting difficult. Now i have a huge clot stuffing both nostrums(i have a hole at my nose bone, so both nostrums communicate. Problem is ,how long should i wait in order to get rid of this clot. Happened in the past (8years ago) and i removed it using a cotton stick 3 days later...thanks and take care

My Grandma use this remendy when we have bleeding nose as a kid
She will chop up some Chives and battered with 1 egg
a tiny bit of salt
Fry it and make us eat it
Believe it or not very seldom do we have bleeding nose

My dughter is 8 she has had nose bleeds since she was 3. When she was 4 sge bleed for like 30 min. i tooj her to the emergency room because it would not stop it stoped on the way over there by the time a doctor saw her they said it was that her vains in her nose so small, thin, and delicate.
I showed them the clots that were coming and the said it was just a phlem. They did not even ran tests on the clots. They just said to ice her nose by the next time so it can frezze the blood.
Up till now she still gets those nasty nise bleeda that wont stop until the clot (phlem) comes out.
Do you all think that is true or should i be woried about that.

I had a similar experience up until I was 7. My mom took me to a dermatologist and I found out I had telangiectasia on my face (it should be visible if your daughter has this). They gave me laser treatment and the frequent nose bleeds stopped (I used to get them daily). If she does have telangiectasia I don’t really think there’s a lot to worry about, however telangiectasia and frequent nose bleeds can also be a sign of HHT so asking your doctor about this may be worth a shot.

It is a sign your brain is being blocked or is opening up. No cause for alarm. My whole right side of my brain was being pretty suffocated. <3 Bless. Walking. Self awareness. healthy eating, attaining a healthy weight is your best bet. Your spine is the culprit. Best wishes. #Experience #DdragonLOL

Hey, i am currently 13 and used to expirence heavy nose bleeds and clotting. I would get one about 5 times a week and each one would last about 20min of non stop heavy bleeding. I then came home from a bike ride and my nose began to bleed but this time for two hours, non stop. It was then that my parents decided to take me to the doctor. He said that one of the reasons is that i have a slight deviated septum which can cause frequent nose bleeds. We then went to a specialist who said that it was just because i was young. He quarterized my nose and that stopped the bleeding for about 6 months. Only now has it started coming back. Anyway there’s my story. Hope this helped or related to someone

Hello Mzikkaize

Do you have a whole house dehumidifier? Or at least a humidifier in his room? You may find it helps.
My daughter suffers frequent nosebleeds too - we took her to the doctor who said she'll likely grow out of it. Time will tell, I suppose. It has been going on for well over a year.
