My 14 year old adopted son has been suffering with migraines for over a year now. He gets them 1-2 a month! He is otherwise healthy and has never had any problems. He also get these nosebleeds almost everyday, I don't know if they somehow connect. But when he get his migraines, they last about 1-2 hours. His eyes hurt really bad. He is not on any medication.
Would you know if there are any complications surrounding your son's birth?
Is he caucasian or of asian descent?
Did the headaches and nosebleed occur together or do the nosebleeds happen without the headaches?
Any associated eye redness, eye tearing, nasal discharge aside form the bleeding?
Any hearing loss or sensation of ear fullness?
Your son may be having episodic migraine headaches however the presence of a new onset nosebleed warrants further evaluation.Exposure to high temperatures, fever,obstruction in the nasal passages, prior nose injuries, bleeding disorders and some infections may cause nose bleed.
Seek immediate consult with his pediatrician.An ENT specialist may give a complete evaluation of inner structures of the nose.The headaches and nosebleeds may be connected together however, other conditions as mentioned above need to be excluded. A thorough physical examination and diagnostic tests need to be done.
Just continue to assure your son.If the nosebleed recurs ask your son to bend his head down and pinch the mid portion of the nose for a few minutes.Tell him to avoid blowing his nose or manipulating his nose too much since delicate blood vessels within the nose may rupture and bleed.
