He is very stressed just now and over the last couple of weeks has ben getting constant headaches. Yesterday afternoon he got a headache and then had a big nosebleed. This morning he's had 2 more nosebleeds and still got the headache.

He says it used to happen all the time, years ago and that it'll pass. I want to get him an appointment with the doc today... should I just go ahead and make him one?

he could have high blood pressure

Is it a common thing to have nosebleeds with headaches? I asked him if he'd prefer me to take the kids to school and I got "It's only a headache, I'm not going to die" I'm thinking it's obviously more than 'just' a headache.....

I'd probably try to take my DH to the doc if it was me, but he'd probably respond the same way as your DH!!

I'd get him to go to doc. My MIL was diagnosed with high blood pressure following an uncontrollable nosebleed. If he's stressed out all the more reason to get a check up. Good luck.

I've booked him in so will see what he says when he gets back! Thanks for the reassurance that he needs to go though

Another guess that it might be hypertension.
