Id like to discuss nosebleeds and anxiety along with the symptoms

Customer Question

Id like to discuss nosebleeds and anxiety along with the symptoms im experiencing please?
Submitted: 2 years ago.
Category: Medical
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.

Sure go ahead
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Ive had 3 nosebleeds this week. Not alot coming out but still there. Could anxiety cause this? Im feeling really terrible

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
It is not a typical symptom of anxiety, although anxiety can be a co factor.
Usually dry air or picking the nose causes nose bleeds.
In some cases, it can happen with undiagnosed high blood pressure.
Rarely would it be an indication of a bleeding problem. It is usually just nose bleed.
I would get an exam at this point.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

Ive had my blood pressure checked and it was fine. I feel so so spaced out though like im not on the planet. Im terrified im dying

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
Anxiety disorder can cause all of these symptoms.
What is your question at this point?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

They are there 24 hours a day im so scared of how i feel. Can it make me feel like im dying 24 hours a day

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Everything looks weird around me and i cant settle anywhere. Its like everything is foggy

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
Yes.
However, you need an exam, testing, and treatment.
This must proceed from a hands on diagnosis.
If you have had no doctor see you to date, go to the ER.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Ive been to doctor 3 times. Why do i need to go to er is it serious?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
Not necessarily.
What did your doctor diagnose you as?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Anxiety, if it is serious what could it be? Im so scared

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
It is anxiety.
So I do not think you have something more serious.
We do not diagnose or treat on the site.
We do not replace your doctors diagnoses.
given what you are telling me, then you should call your doctors office now. Your anxiety is clearly not under control, and your doctor needs to address that.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Ive spoken to them today just told me to do breathing exercises.

Would there be Other sympOms if i was dying?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
Yes there would.
If you are in a panic state, and your doctor will not treat you, go to the ER of your panic. Have someone drive you.
NO I don't think it is serious, but you should still have treatment.
the ER doctor will call and talk with your doctor, not just his office staff.
please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Nobody will take me because they think im being stupid. Plus there is a 8 hour wait minimum at moment.

What symptoms would i have if it was serious?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
I have reviewed your previous question about all of this.
It seems you are not dying, your doctor has cleared you medically, and you have anxiety that is not effectively treatment.
If you were dying, you would not have been on more than one post here, over a period of 24 hours.
However, again, you should not be left in a state of anxiety.
My advice is to have a friend , husband, etc...take you to the doctors office, or to A&E.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Ive felt like this weeks. So does that mean its not serious? But it feels worse today. It like i cant see out my eyes properly like its all hazy and foggy.

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
It means you are not dying.
YOu need to go get some assistance.
We only answer questions.
Please click a positive rating.
Come back as needed.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Ive got meds from my doctor

Ive got an appointment monday. Will i survive till then?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
Yes, as far as everything I can tell from your posts.
But I still recommend that you go to A&E if you decide you need to.
please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

What would a&e do?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
Physical exam.
Any lab tests they think are needed.
Make sure you are OK.
Probably would talk with your doctor as well.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Do you think theres a possibility im not ok?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
I have no idea.
A question like that can not be answered without examination, at least not medically.
We are not here to tell you if you are OK or not, or to take the place of your doctor, or a doctor who can examine you.
You appear to have severe anxiety problems that are not treated effectively.
Other than that, I know nothing about you medically.
Going to A&E would serve the purpose of letting your doctor know that your symptoms are not controlled, to the extent you had to seek help elsewhere.
Thus, that might be a good thing do do.
We are now way beyond the original question here. Please click a positive rating since we are only paid PER positive rating.
Feel free to find me other questions.

If your doctor has examined you, started medications, and tells you that, then yes I do.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Just on final question and ill rate this post again.

Ive felt this bad a week now. Started feeling ill 4 weeks ago. If i was going to die of it would it of happened by now?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
That all depends.
In a chronic illness, to die could take months or years.
In an acute illness, such as a heart attack, it would generally happen right away but not always.
Feeling like you are going to die from psychological illness is common, but you generally do not die from it, unless there are suicidal impulses. If this ever happens, go right to the ER.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

What sort of illnesses are chronic?

Im pregnant also would be baby be healthy which it is if a chronic illness?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
Chronic illnesses are like many cancers, thyroid disease, autoimmune disease, obesity, diabetes, etc. Your doctor would have ruled these out.
You would most likely not be pregnant, which is a sign of being health, if you had a chronic disease.
