Hi kdb1944,


Please get off the computer and call your doctor. Since this has never happened before, you should seek medical attention right away. If that means going to the ER, so be it. 


Please let us know how you are - and call that doctor!!

Thank you for your concern and the good advice.  I am fine and my dr. didn't seem too concerned when I called the next day, (Mon.) and did no testing.  This, because it hadn't happened again by the time I was able to get in to see him.  It hasn't happened since,  thankfully.  


I had to chuckle when I received an email notice of your reply, just this morning.  


Again,  thank you,

Yeah, sorry about that "year long" delayed response. I am so very sorry it took so very long to answer you, but very relieved to hear you are ok?


Are you feeling ok otherwise?

I am in no way in the medical profession and can only offer my advice.


Nose bleeds with head pain can be related to a great many things, anemia and high blood pressure being a couple.  Sharp pains can be serious and you should seek medical attention.  Though nose bleeds are usually harmless, those that are accompanied by sharp pains can be a sign of something more severe.
