To decide merely the facts without deciding whether or not they may be explained by supernatural causes, history tells us that many ecstatics bear on hands, feet, side, or brow the marks of the Passion of Christ with corresponding and intense sufferings. These are called visible stigmata. Others only have the sufferings, without any outward marks, and these phenomena are called invisible stigmata.

There's a good chance it just came out of your nose, thats what happens to me sometimes, usualy when I get hot(room temp or other reasons :p) or feverish when sleeping.
The balled fists that are stiff sound kinda bad since its often a pointer to cardiac problems and heart attacks (also a reason why you could have a bloody nose, soaring bloodpresure).
If you think to yourself "hey, I never had a heartattack" then think about this:
My own dad had a tripple bypass surgery 2 years ago. He went to the docter for a checkup, to renew his license to be alowed to drive a truck. The doc hooks him up to the cardiograph and almost falls over. He then proceeded to check the machine and replace the paper roll, since thats often a cause for false positives.
He replaced it and nearly falls over again. Next thing he did was call 100(911) for an ambulance and told my dad what was going on. He just made 2 heartattacks right there while at the docters office, without feeling a thing.
Checking the cardiogram, it showed that he had been making these heartattacks on a rather regular basis for at least a few months and if the docter didn't have him admitted to the hospital immediatly, there would be a very good chance he died while sleeping within the next few weeks or even the same night.
Have your heart checked man, no matter what age you are. I know a kid that was only 18 when having a fatal massive heartattack. And several more with other heart related problems.

i agree with the nose theory even though at first it sounds like a stigmatic, but im pritty sure that for a stigmatic their are still cuts or scars or w/e

I don't remember when it started but i know it wasn't happening my whole life. it probably started within the last year.
I started to wake up with blood on my hands. Not moist blood, but dry blood. It doesnt happen all the time, just every once in awhile. It doesn't cover my whole hands, sometimes it doesnt even get on both hands. I examine my body to make sure the blood doesnt come from anywhere else. I never find anything where this blood can come from. I usually find it on my fingertips and palms. Also, when i wake up with blood on my hands, my hands are made into fists and are very sweaty. It takes me a long time to be able to open my hands because the joints in my fingers are so stiff to that position of a fist, and when I finally do get them open, I find blood.
One time it happened when i was awake. i was sitting on the chair watching tv and i looked down at my hands and there was dry blood on them.
'Hematidrosis, also called' blood sweat is a very rare condition in which a human sweats blood.
The clenched fist syndrome is an entity in which the patient keeps one or both hands tightly clenched. It is seen in all groups; hand dominance or compensation is not a factor.
