So I'm not bleeding down below at the moment but I have been sneezing more often and this morning there was blood in my nasal mucous. I very very rarely ever get nose bleeds, I can count on one hand the number of times, and one of them was because I whacked my nose against a metal bar...anyways a few weeks ago I also coughed up a little blood. I'm wondering is the Imuran behind that and am I getting a sinus infection? Or something else?

Don't discount anything...definitely go and see the doc.

It could be dry nasal passages, but it could be a side effect of something else.

The coughing up blood could be drainage from bleeding nasal passages, but again, could be something else going on.

It happens to me when my nose is all dry in the morning. I know it is my nose though because when I blow it I sometimes I have bloody bugers. It's fun living in the north east...
