A Bloody Mess!

I haven't had a nose bleed in years. This morning while driving I felt the need to blow my nose. Then the floodgates opened. The messiest nose bleed I've ever experienced. I couldn't stem the flow. Even with a napkin held to my nose, blood flowed down my chin and onto my shirt. I had to pull over in order to lay back and get it under control. Anyone ever had a similar experience while driving?

Ok, now this is getting odd. Several weeks ago I had the same thing happen. I woke up and felt my nose running a bit. I sniffled a few times and it wouldn't stop. There was quite a bit of blood when I blew my nose. It took a good while to stop. It hasn't happened since.

No big deal if it happened to both of us, right?

This morning my girlfriend called and the same thing happened to her today as she was walking out the door. Exactly the same description as both of us. Nothing like that has happened to either one of us in years, if ever.

In case any of this is related to COVID, I've never been tested and I have had no shots. No one has touched me. I felt sick for a couple of days over Christmas, with body aches and feverish, but not bad at all. That was it. I don't know if that was COVID or not.

This is not good. Something is up.

I haven’t had a nosebleed , since I can’t remember. But I will add that I have had a constant nasal drip for the last couple of years now, have to take mucinex daily for it because it’s so thick…..def sounds like something is up.

Very strange. I've not received a covid shot either. I also felt under the weather for about a week or so recently along with upper back and neck pain. Very strange indeed...

It's either the Far Right or Putin!

That's my wager.

Some sinus thing going around. I'm sitting here miserable today and my sinuses are killing me.

Hmmm I don't know if any states you all live in does this, but here in Calif, as well as I've seen it in Arizona, NM, Texas, Okla. when driving thru. Those planes laying out "chemtrails" across the sky, to make it cloudy within an hour or 2 !

Here, they do it quite frequently, and it AIN'T Jet streams as usual either. Now I'm not really into the conspiracy thing, but I know what I see happening way too often in our skies!......It can start out nice and clear blue skies, then a number of planes 2-3 or 4, will start laying out their checkerboard lines. The trails linger as they slower expand and join together to make it overcast. You can plainly see, it's multiple planes at once....

It's been going on so long now, it's just like a normal thing, almost daily here!

If nosebleeds happen to continue to be a problem there is a medication that can help. After mom died I lately took care of my dad's medical needs and he would rub his nose a lot because it was itchy and he had a period when he was having nosebleeds. He was on Xarelto (a blood thinner) so it was even worse. I took him to an ear nose throat doctor and she prescribed something that he applied with a swab to the inside of his nostrils to make skin and/or veins tough (I don't recall exactly, maybe 5-8 years ago) and this worked very well for him.

Good luck with this problem.
