Epistaxis (nosebleed)

I have epistaxis for years. Especially when I'm tired or hungry and in winters. Not much bleeding only a few drops and then stops. I wasn't examined for that so I don't know what causes. I read somewhere epistaxis is common in adhd but it was not scientific report. Do you have such a problem?

Re: Epistaxis (nosebleed)

I'd be interested in your source for this info. I had not heard that nosebleed was more common in ADHD.

I have heard that people with ADHD are more likely to also be diagnosed with allergies, though, which in some cases could lead to nosebleeds.

I personally have not had a problem with nosebleeds.

I had read here: "My Nosebleed Theory" by MyLittleVillagers you can also see comments below the page. Also scientificially allergic rhinitis is common in adhd.

Re: Epistaxis (nosebleed)

Thanks for the reference. Unfortunately, that kind of casual polling (like a lot of the "Hey, do you have this "symptom", too?" polls on ADDF!) often leads to selection biases that tend not to produce valid results. But, like our own individual observations, it can still raise interesting questions that are worth exploring (even if it isn't, by itself, convincing evidence of a link between ADHD and nosebleeds). Sometimes an astute observation can lead to important new discoveries (and sometimes it leads people astray).

I looked in PubMed and did find 2 papers on ADHD and epistaxis:

- 1 was a case report of a child with ADHD who came to clinical attention due to nosebleeds attributed to frequent nose-picking.

- 1 was a case-control study of Turkish children with and without recurrent epistaxis (RE). The researchers found a higher prevalence of ADHD and ODD in children with RE vs children without; however, I couldn't read the full paper to evaluate their methods. They seem to speculate that the nosebleeds are related to self-injurious behaviors as well -- whether that means nose-picking, or impulsive activities that result in injuries to the face, I don't know.

Re: Epistaxis (nosebleed)

Keep in mind too that stimulant drugs taken for adhd dry out mucous membranes and raise blood pressure, which could possibly also lead to more nosebleeds.

Re: Epistaxis (nosebleed)

I used to have a lot prior to being diagnosed with ADHD. I suspect raised jugular venous pressure-- a proven complication of this neck injury issue I keep rabbiting on about.

I have epistaxis at least for 5 years. And I was diagnosed and started to use drugs only 3 months ago.
