Nose Bleeds

Apr 26, 2018 4:24 AM

Hi all,

I've been having nose bleeds every morning for the last 3 days - I'm currently experiencing a flare up of my fibromyalgia and have been off work for a week.

Could the bleeding be related to that? Anyone else had this problem?

Thanks in advance

Nose bleeds are not related to fibro
I have had them all my life and the doctor said it isn’t related to fibro
So I ended up having a short op to fix it

Hope this helped😗☺️

Kew2012, I have both fibromyalgia and Sjogrens. My nosebleeds are due to the extreme dryness of nasal passages caused by the Sjogrens. I've suffered dry eyes for decades but wasn't diagnosed with Sjogrens until 2015. I'm in a double flare of both right now, and my throat gets so dry talking I sometimes choke on words, literally. I have to grab water and drink before I can utter another word because it feels like my dry throat tissues are sticking together.

Flappylady81 thanks for the advice. My eyes get extremely dry too. I'm going to mention this at my next appointment. Take care 🌈
