a relative is having frequent nose bleeds that won't stop. he's being checked out in A&E tonight but we haven't had any news yet
anyone got any idea as to what could be causing them?
non-scary suggestions preferred! I daren't google
and yes i know i should wait until he's back from the hospital but i'm worried and i guess i just want someone to say don't worry, eating too much cheese will cause it or some other silly thing like that
sorry, didn't give enough info he's late 40s. had them a few years ago (about 5) but he was able to stop them all so being a man, didn't worry about them or ever find out why. He's only gone to the hospital this time (despite having another bout of them this week, usually in early hours of morning so they've been waking him up) because it wouldn't stop bleeding. They cauterised his nose last night but it kept bleeding again so now they've plugged him
