My name is Lacy Ann. I have lupus, Scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis and several smaller conditions. I'm interested in knowing if anyone has ever experienced this scenario: Every other month or so, right around my period, I will have a significant nosebleed. By this I mean one of two things, duration of the bleed or intensity of the bleed. I have mentioned this to my doctors on more than one occasion but they don't seem overly concerned 🙄 which can be frustrating to say the least. I should also note that no matter how long the nosebleeds take to stop, I am a wet noodle afterwards...for hours. I know all the treatments for nosebleeds, I just want someone who can make me feel less like an idiot. Thoughts?

      My SLE and RA diagnoses have me so depressed. My pain is constant, but my family says " you look fine"

      Here's what I found online https://extrapelvicnotrare.org/nosebleeds/ Also it may do you better to talk with your gynecologist instead of your primary doctor.

        @SweetK thank you! It drives me crazy trying to figure out what is related to which autoimmune condition lately.
