Can anyone offer any advice for dealing with / lessening nose bleeds? I've been told they're due to my asthma medication, but it's getting ridiculous. I'm having between 5 and 10 bleeds a day and although most don't last that long, some are heavier and last 10 - 15 minutes. I wake up in the night having a nose bleed and having swallowed the blood which then causes me to cough and that really isn't nice. It can be really embarrassing if I'm out or if I don't 'catch' it in time and end up with a blood covered top looking like I've just committed some gruesome crime!! I've suffered from anaemia in the past so I'm getting a little worried that this can't be good for me.
I've spoken to my GP, but her advice was basically 'put up with it'. I'm going to speak to her again, because this isn't something I can just put up with. I'm also going to ask my consultant when I see him this week, and see if he has any good suggestions, but anything anyone here has used would be much appreciated.
