I get nose bleeds alot, and for the longest time my family just thought it was because of the weather changes, but I went to the doctors bc I was afraid that it could be bc of high blood pressure, but the doctor had told me that I had a polyp in my right side of my nose. I went for treatment once but never went back bc it hurt. They had taken a long match like stick to burn the blood vessels out of my nose. It had left my nose very sore and feeling like I had blown my nose with a rough tissue for days. And the outside of my nose was all black and I was embarrassed, but I still get my nose bleeds and thats even more embarrassing. I wish I would have stuck with my treatments, but Im almost 20 now and I no longer have insurance thru my parents so I havent been able to go back to the doctors, but my breathing has gotten so bad that I can't wait to get insurance so I can get surgery to get this thing out of my nose!!!!!!!
