← Return to Sudden significant, difficult to control nasal bleeding

Thank you for taking the time to reply. Your experiences resonate what I've undergone.
Yes, Afrin sprayed cotton inserted into the left nostril (the one that literally pours out blood) absolutely helped. Ditto to the squeezing (which I did for 90 minutes this past Saturday when I had episode #3!).
We've had air purifiers and cool mist humidifier stationed strategically throughout the house, and most definitely in the bedroom. And yet I experienced what I call "nasal hemorrhaging" episodes.
I'm looking to be seen by the incredible otolaryngologist who cauterized the nostril with the first episode. She also removed sizable blood clots that had lodged in my throat (making it difficult to breathe and swallow). I'm so worn out and stressed with this additional "condition" placed on my already seriously filled medical plate. Doesn't do much for my ongoing depression either, and adds more to my husband's intense heart issues.

Gracias for your input. Deeply appreciated.

Since submitting the post of 6 days ago, I had yet another episode....I wrote about elsewhere in this conversation thread. Synopsis: happened at 10 PM so my husband drove me to the country trauma center where I received excellent care. However, since it is a trauma center with the ER staffed by the trauma area also, we were there several hours, not leaving until 3:20 AM....
Looking to be examined by one of the otolaryngologists within the Ear/Nose/Throat division of that teaching hospital that has received top reviews for their excellence in interdisciplinary approaches to patient care.
