Brief Answer:
Kindly see detailed answer

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your query and here is my advice.

As per your history Nosebleeds may occur due to hypertension, sometimes.

Let me know if your blood pressure is under control or not, have headache, breathing difficulty, dizziness.

Nosebleeds can have causes that aren't due to underlying disease. For example nasal dryness, nose picking or injury.

I would advise you to consult with your physician for detailed medical examination, and may require ENT specialist.

Till then keep monitoring your blood pressure, be calm, keep yourself hydrated. Sit straight, maintain upright position, apply ice pack on nose.

In case of bleeding not stopping, go to emergency care to nearby hospital.

Hope I have answered your query, let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr Shyam Kale.
