stress and nose bleeds

We are going through a difficult time at the moment.
The bio father of my DS has turned up after 8 years and wants contact.
My son is distressed and seems to be having a lot of nose bleeds.
I have taken him to the docs a couple of months ago and there was a little blood vestle that he could see a problem with. He gave us some cream and it settled but they have returned. But just wondered if the stress (which we have really try to limit) is causing things.

I had spontaneous nosebleeds until puberty and DD gets them too. I hadn't noticed any correlation with stress. In fact they sometimes start in her sleep.

thanks 3b1g

I had nosebleeds around the time I was doing my 11plus. I always assumed it was stress. There was also family issues around that time too. I havent had one since I was about 13.
