About 4 years ago I had a procedure done to correct a deviated nasal septum. Unfortunately, things actually got worse and I have had bloody noses at least 2-3 times per week and I'm always blowing dried blood out of my nose. My biggest problem is when I have a bloody nose the blood doesn't come out the front, it flows back down into my throat and I end up swallowing it. I have chronic heartburn and I feel like I have asthma.
Is blood known to be an irritant to the esophagus and stomach? If so, could this be the cause of my heartburn issues? I have taken several PPI's and none of them seem to help.
