    Fonze Totally obsessive , cool by nature

    why ?
    I'm 47 and apart from a couple after I used my snout to stop someone's fist, I've all of a sudden started having them regulary, though the strange thing is just the left side ..
    Anyone offer an explanation or opinion ?

    Blood pressure?

    Cycling more frequently in cold/polluted environment?

    Become a bit of a pansy?

    I would suggest a check up....sooner rather than later. As @Tin Pot suggests it be blood which case it needs attention.

    get checked out at doctors to make sure, friend of mine started to have frequent nose bleeds went to doctors and was sent to hospital, turns out that if he had not had the nose bleeds he probably would have had a stroke is now taking medication.

    High blood pressure to be precise. I used to get them until I got mine under control

    I get them and have never had high BP (at least not since I stopped smoking 15 odd years ago)

    Dodgy capillary up my left nostril which was cauterised after a non stopping bleed. I tend to get bleeds after long haul flights due to the dry air (it was flying to the US and back in the space of 72 hours that led to the above) or if I’ve had a very snotty cold and blowing nose a lot!

    Best get checked if they are very frequent or long lasting (not stopping with pinching/ice). My dad gets them but he’s on warfarin

    And if you have a cold AND allergies, what then, please?

    Is there any way to reduce the risk of a post cycling one?

    Most likely cause is simply damage to one of the small blood vessels in the nose. Once this occurs it is quite common for repeat nose bleeds for a week or two as part of the healing process. Cold weather is an aggravating factor.
    Nose bleeds can occur as a symptom of high blood pressure - but not normally unless it is quite severely elevated.
    If the bleeding continues - get it checked out by your GP.
    You can get your BP checked at a number of chemists which will perhaps be more convenient than trying to make a GP appointment at a time when surgeries are exceptionally busy.
