Leleza, it is more likely to be due to a nose problem than a sinus problem. It might be that you have a chronic infection or allergy, but of course it might be due to something more serious like high blood pressure, anaemia or a bleeding disorder. The best would be to see your doctor and have it sorted out. Good luck.
