for the past two months, my husband has been having severe headaches. Three weeks ago, he started to get nosebleeds as well. When a headache is very severe, his nose starts to bleed. He is losing quite a bit of blood. Once the nosebleed ends his headache has eased. We are continually going to doctors but no one is able to help. Sometimes his nosebleed will last the entire day. Does any one have any ideas what can cause this. HIs blood pressure is usually fine, but just yesterday when he went to the doctor, it was extremely low. He also has chest pains, back pains. Any ideas?
It will help us to know what the diagnosis is in your husband’s case. Severe headaches and nose bleeds are usually seen in migraines, since high BP has already been ruled out. The best treatment for migraines is identification of trigger, so it is advisable that your husband maintain a headache diary.
It is also important that he undergoes a complete neurological exam as well to rule out neurological conditions that can present in a similar manner.
Let us know if you have more questions.
