Nose bleeds
I am a 43 years old. I am on a hormone patch and cholestrol tablets. Since August I have had sudden nose bleeds. What could be the cause? Yesterday I had a terrible headache and then my nose bled. Afterwards I felt better.

Donny, the most common causes at your age are allergies and high blood pressure. The best would be to see your doctor and have him make sure it is nothing serious. Good luck.
