Your symptoms seem to suggest a cardiovascular condition, probably transient increase in blood pressure due to blowing your nose or yelling, as a possible cause of your symptoms. Other causes that could also be related, but are less likely to be the cause are increased sinus pressure and tension headache. You should have you blood pressure checked and you cardiovascular status monitored by your doctor to rule out any serious condition. Hope this helps.
The same thing about when blowing your nose and having blood in your mucus is happening to me. This is my third day now and I have been told that when you blow your nose a lot you can pop a blood vessel in your nose and the blood that comes out it because of that. So I was told not to worry about it because it happens to a lot of people and its very common and it’s not fatal nor anything.
It would be very unusual, but extremely hard nose-blowing could cause a perilymph fistula (tear in one or both of the membranes separating the middle ear from the inner ear). This would cause hearing loss and dizziness (but not just transient dizziness like y'all are describing). Holding in sneezes (sneezing with your nose and mouth blocked off) could also cause enough pressure to cause a perilymph fistula. So--please be careful with the nose-blowing and sneezing!
I mention here only in an effort to suggest the nose spray is not causing my question of blood content form the left nostril only when blowing in the morning.
whenever i suck out mucus i find some blood in it and a couple of times when i blow my nose i see some blood too... i have been suffering from runny nose and i have been also coughing for like about 2 weeks and i have only used otrivin for the runny nose... what could be wrong with me?
If it's just flecks of blood it could be that your sinuses are irritated and/or very dry, Blowing your nose too hard can rupture the tiny blood vessels in your nose, drips down your throat and it gets coughed up with the stagnant mucus in the morning. Try a humidifier in your bedroom if your climate is dry, or use Ocean Spray during the day, wait a few minutes then blow your nose gently. If you're coughing up more than a half cup of blood see your doctor asap.
When I blow my nose in the morning mucus comes out as light yellow, white and blood all mixed. Then as the day progresses the mucus turns more white and blood. Sometimes it is a little bit of blood and sometimes it is a good amount. My throat has also been hurting for over 2 weeks.
Last night, I had just finished eating a hamburger, and soon after, I had a brief sneezing spell while in the restroom. When I went to blow my nose right after, something felt weird and more solid than usual going through one of my nostrils. What popped out the other side in my tissue was this ashy, crumbly gray/brown stuff.
It is sometimes normal to see small blood vessels present in mucus from your nose if you have been blowing your nose a lot and sneezing, etc. You should not be seeing this in your chest mucus though, although it is not unheard of and could also be harmless. If you see anything other than very tiny blood vessels and little bright red traces of blood then you should definitely seek medical assistance and evaluation.
I've been noticing a fair amount of blood in my mucus when I blow my nose. I've recently recovered from a cold. I'm a 24 year old female and I am a smoker. Is this something I can expect to go away in time or do I need to seek medical attention? I don't have any other symptoms like a cough or pain in my sinuses.
I cannot stop blowing and sometimes when I blow,i blow out mucus mixed with blood.. I believe this has happened due to excessive use of cocaine on a specific night but not an ongoing use....This has been happening for the past 4 days and my nose feels soar because of the excessive blowing. I am interested in any feedback anyone has, thank you very much...
After rushing to the toilet and blowing out mucus that had blood mixed with it, the horrible pain in my tooth seemed to subside as well. I am most perplexed about this syndrome and i do hope i can be enlightened to whatever it is for it causes utmost discomfort to me.
I can heavily smell it when I put a finger in my nose ot when I sniffle. When I sniffle the smell will be about 15 minutes in my nose and eventualy go away. I had no complaints yet about it, it seems that there is something there which releases an odor when it's being irritated.
For the past three days now, when I blow my nose, I have these quarter sized, rubber like things that come out of my nose. It is a light yellowish brown color, and in the middle of it, it has small blood vessels. When I do blow this thing out of my nose it will temporarily clear the congestion from the side of my nose that I blew it out of. It is really freaking me out, should I be concerned, what is it, and what should I do?
Hello, The symptoms that you are having are due to epistaxis(bleeding from nose).Common causes are picking of nose,dry weather, blowing it too hard,trauma to nose,allergies and sometimes bleeding disorders. Sometimes liver disorders,sinus and nasopharyngeal abnormalities or serious causes like bleeding disorders and leukmias can also cause epistaxis.
It'd only my nose. When I wake up, my nose is stuffed up and when I try to blow it, I can see blood on the tissue. It's more like a dry blood pieces. I live in AZ so the air is pretty dry. Might this be the cause? I read somewhere that pregnancy can cause bloody mucus in my nose too. Please advise. Thank you.
-I can trigger the smell at any moment I choose(I usually do not do this for the heck of it) just by blowing my nose or taking a deep breath in through my nose. It lingers for hours! I can smell it every single second until I am unconscious in sleep. I don't smell it in the morning upon waking. After brushing my teeth though, I usually have to blow my nose...
So far so good till in 2002 she started having a runny nose with constant blowing of the nose (with/without mucus). She was treated my a throat specialist who told her that she might have some kind of allergy. She was sent for test with negative results EXCEPt for extreme allergies to almost all kinds of antibiotics ( this is meant seriously) except for one which is called Zenat.
No amount of trying to clear my throat seems to work as it never feels like it has all gone. Ironically, it seems less blocked up when I have a cold when I am constantly blowing my nose. When i blow my nose or try to spit it out when I haven't got a cold, it is a clear, sticky substance. I have tried various decongestant remedies that don't work as i thought it might be that.
well, so anyway, now that you know all of this, i went to an ENT last year and he said there were broken vessels in my nose that needed to heal so he said stop blowing my nose so much. i have had a bad cold in the past 2 years since i stopped smoking but the blood is still there. the ENT said it was bloody post nasal drip. so a few weeks ago i went back because the blood was still appearing and he did a pharyngoscopy thingy where he put a camera through my nose and down my throat.
It keeps me from sleeping some nights. Since around Christmas I have had a lot of mucus from my nose.(and when that's not going on, it is stuffy)I am leaning more towards allergies now. (since I put a fuzzy blanket I received at Christmas away in a closet wrapped tightly in a plastic bag)Two days after I put the blanket away I started feeling better!Not totally cured, but may have found one of the allergy triggers. I finally broke down and made an appointment with my doctor.
The nasal cavity is a pretty delicate area. Very dry air, blowing your nose too hard and certainly picking your nose too much can cause a bit of a nose bleed. I would guess forceful vomiting would do the same thing. You probably had some bleeding in there that clotted and then cleared out when you self-suctioned (?) :-) Do watch for sinus pain in your face and around your eyes and for fever in case you develop an infection.
a couple of episodes of post nasal drip, yellow/green mucus right nostril, remnants of blood in left...not relly stuffed up, but need the odd blow....no blood dripping from left, but it blows out, and evident on kleenex wipes Wednesday: Terrible odor from right nostril, mucus on kleenex smells aweful, the left is same as yesterday. Thursday: (Today) Odor really bad, somewhat constant (90%) other than that, no fever/cold, not really stuffed up...
All day yesterday I was blowing my nose and the snot was a dark yellow. When I got home last night, I blew my nose and It was red. When I woke up this morning and blew my nose its still red. I also have a really bad cough. What could be the problem?
This was my second sinus surgery (first was in 2004 when I had stents in my nose). I continue to visit my surgeon every two weeks to have my nose "evacuated". I am so tired of this smell. I use saline, a humidifier and bacitracin. I will never have sinus surgery again. The doctor now tells me the smell can last up to six months. With my luck, it will be six years. Very discouraging.
I have read several messages from people with similar symptoms such as mine - cough mainly in AM with mucus, again in the evening. I plan to try some of the suggestions such as taking an antihistamine/decongestant and a remedy for GERD (although I do not have symptoms of that particular problem). I have been hacking for about 3 months, have been to the doctor who has given me antibiotics along with cough medicines. Seems to help a bit but then I'm hacking again.
I've the same, bright yellow/orangy out of my left nostril and normal green in the other nostril, and when its dry in the nose in the morning its all hard and like crystal, its runs out also!
I've been on antibiotics, and the pain in my throat has almost completely disappeared. However, I am still constantly blowing blood out of my nose (along with green mucus). Do I need to go back to the doctor, or will this bloody issue disappear as the infection clears?
