where do you live? I'm originally from SLC, Utah and I used to get nosebleeds constantly. Anything could set them off: A tap or small hit to the
nose, quick movement of the head, a smack on the back of the head, etc... Sometimes they would just start with no explanation. I would wake up in the
middle of the night with nosebleeds. I had this "blanky" that I always slept with (I still have it to this day, ahhh, memories :-).
It is a beige color, but it is tainted by red-brown stains from my nose bleeds. There is one huge blood stain in the middle of it that a person can
notice if they hold it up to light or have very good eyes. Over the years, I'm sure I lost quite a few pints of blood. My father also, strangely,
also suffered from nosebleeds at one time. He's also from UT. He almost died from a nose bleed once. They had to cauterize most veins throughout
his nose to try and get rid of his nosebleeds. I suppose it worked up to a point, but he still had to go back and have even more veins cauterized.
So, how do I explain my father's nosebleeds, as well as mine? Dry air from being at such a high altitude.
When I moved to Japan at the age of 11. I only had one major nosebleed the first month of being there. After that, I had a few minor ones, and then
none. If dry air doesn't explain your predicament, I'm sure you just have overly sensitive nose veins, or you are not getting enough certain
minerals and vitamins. A lack of certain minerals and vitamins can cause a weakening of the veins. I can't remember specific minerals or vitamins
at the moment, but maybe someone else from ATS can lend a hand. :-D
Or, maybe you really are being abducted. But, try and look at the reasons I have posted above first. :-D
