Nosebleeds can be caused by anemia. I used to get them when my iron was really low. But they can be caused by lots of other things too. My dad used to get them about
e/o/month when he stopped giving blood. His body had gotten so accustomed to giving blood for over 30 years, that he kept making the extra blood!! Weird hugh??? He would have a gusher nose bleed and then he was fine.
He should be keeping a symptom journal so he doesn't forget to tell the doctor.
