On Saturday night I got a nosebleed. It seemed normal enough, and I was able to stop it. Sunday had my nose full of brown mucus that i thought was dried blood. But on Monday suddenly it started bleeding out of nowhere again. I had 3/4 nosebleeds between 5 and 12, ending with my coughing up blood so i rang 111 and got sent to the Emergancy Clinic.
When I got there it was no longer bleeding so I got given an anti-bacteria nasal cream, Naseptin? And told there was nothing they could do. They didn't check anything except BP.
I got home & promptly had quite a bad nosebleed, but it did stop after 10-20 minutes so i tried to sleep and had ANOTHER nosebleed. When they stopped I went to bed and managed to sleep 4-5 hours till this morning.
I've not had a nosebleed today but I did cough up brown, green and bloody mucus. I went to my GP and explained what happened. She checked in my nose and throat and said to take the cream. I tried to explain I feel really anxious which isn't helping the bleeds and I can't know how much blood I've lost down my throat or out my nose because none of them are amazingly bad but they are so frequent.
She said if they are managable but continue for 2-3 mroe days come back & they can do blood tests and things. But if i can't stop one go to a&e. But even with the very worst ones i've had by the time i get to a&e they've stopped.
I just don't feel like anyone's helping me or understanding or if there's anything they can actually do. And I feel on edge, all the time. Because I used to get very bad nosebleeds and I'm worried each time that it could be another bad one like that.
I don't know what I need---just some advice what to ask for help wise? Thank you.
