My foster boy helped a person who was falling in and out of

Resolved Question:

My foster boy helped a person who was falling in and out of consciousness on Tuesday 28/07 until a paramedic arrived. It seems she had returned from Turkey 2 days previous and was feeling unwell. He has come home tonight and had suffered a sudden nose bleed. Is there anything that might suggest a serious viral infection?

Hello]
No
These do not typically start with a nose bleed.
However, symptoms need to be evaluated...this can be very high blood pressure, and that can be an emergency.
I would have him examined now.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

So there is no worries about any infections coming from Turkey?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
With a viral hemorragic disease, the person would rapidly be getting very ill.
I don't think you are describing this.
However, that does not change the fact that this might be something like a hypertensive urgency, and he needs examination ...NOW.
Good luck.
