I had a problem when I was in school where I didn't go to it a lot! Not on purpose, I never ditched school as much as I wished I had the guts to. I got sick a lot, I had a lot of anxiety that just prevented me from going to school, I hated school. Another thing that led me to missing school was my allergies, yeah wah wah allergies, you sneeze and get stuffed up you poor thing. that isn't enough for you to miss school! What about vomiting, blacking out, and having nose bleeds that would last for 30 minutes and having 10 of them in one night? Yeah that happened to me every Spring and Autumn. And I had one of those situations today. I didn't have 10 nose bleeds, but I did have 2 and it was bad. One only lasted for 10 minutes and the other lasted for around 30-45 minutes. It was so bad that I was really cold, I wasn't dizzy but I kept stumbling. and I was really tired so in the middle of working I just had to go to bed, I had to take a nap. I get really dry sinuses, don't tell me to take any medications because they won't work. I have taken the top of the top, besides the actually allergy shots. It just happens. I just have to keep drinking water and keeping things from bonking my nose and keep my sinuses clean and I guess wet? That sounds weird, but it is true, I have to put water in my nose, something you shouldn't do! But it is the only thing that works. So yeah! That is my life, allergies suck, and I just want to cuddle with my panda but I'm afraid I'm going to make him a red panda with my nose blood. Oh man.

I never had allergies, but lately I've had my nose and eyes running when I go outdoors, no matter the weather. I hope it won't get worse than that. I may count the times I had nose bleedings instead, usually because of stress, probably two. Three overall, but that other time I was little and was picking my nose. I got anxious because of school too, that's why I'm still unsure I would let my children go to a public school, if I ever had any. Nothing wrong with school itself, but its hours and environment can be detrimental.

I barely go outside during the spring because I just cannot handle it. I would never let my kids go to public school until things finally change. But Kids learn better and faster with home learning, so I don't see the point of public school other than the social enviroment

Have you been tested for a bleeding disorder? I have von willebrands and I get nosebleeds like that as well. It was much much worse as a kid then it is now. I think the type of steam heat we had in my parents house and allergies as well helped the condition be worse. I have anemia and was always light headed. I'm sure the amount of blood I lost all the time made me worse. I got nosebleeds that would gush like a faucet for hours. If you touched my nose even in the slightest it would start bleeding. My friends didn't believe me and of course had to stinking touch it. Then there parents freaked when they saw how bad I bled. I was used to it. One girl still remembers it and anytime she seems me every ten years or so mention it lol.

I have been to the doctor about this many times and they say I'm fine. I just have really bad allergies. They suggest me nasal sprays, but I don't have the money for that.

@DesirousDreamer I did take flonaze once and that helped a bit. I don't like taking things very often though as I worry about side effects so I just suffer through things instead.

I am so sorry, nose bleeds are so scary. My husband is having this problem from a couple of weeks. We cannot understand where is the problem.

I know mine is dry sinuses. The weather is very dry right now because it is warming up and all the blossoms are making my sinuses strain. That has always been my problem. I hope you all can figure it out.

@DesirousDreamer I thought to dry sinuses, may be the allergy to pollen can also be a problem.

I've had pretty bad hay fever all my life. It's a pain in the neck.

I feel like that is going to be my situation as well. It really is a pain in the neck, and joints, and ears...and eyes. Just everything

aw. I feel you. My kids had the same nose bleeding every time the season will change or going to the dry season. Before it used to take around 30 minutes but now not that much anymore. The doctor said to stop the nasal spray because it actually might lead to more bleeding. I also have to wet their nose with wet tissues so it won't get so dry.

Yeah the only thing that helps me is wetting my nose. Doctors suggested nasal spray to me, but I don't trust them and they are also super expensive.

Hayfever is horrible I had it when I was little and it was really bad, I used to get nosebleeds as well and I remember once pulling a blood clot out that was longer and wider than my nose I used to spend my evenings sitting in the bathroom blowing my nose, there was no point in me leaving the bathroom because my nose filled up again the very second I stopped blowing it. I got itchy rashes all over my body and I could barely see with my eyes so swollen from itching. Like you, there was no medication that even eased it for me and all I could do was wait. Thankfully it started to get a little bit better in my late teens, and then when I was 21 it magically disappeared. I'm sorry to hear you're sti having problems
