I have been diagnoised with Lupus for I can say about 5 years and I have never experienced nose bleeds, I started my "monthly" last Monday and I also started having nose bleeds right along with it. It is soo bad that i can stand over the sink while the blood drips out. Clots and everything has been coming out my nose, has anyone experienced this with Lupus? Should I be worried? Sad

I have experienced the exact same. The clots worried me, and I know if you try and tilt your head back it just makes you throw up.
I asked my Dr and he said it has to do with kidney function and the fact that we may be dehydrated. just drink lots and lots of water. I still get the nosebleeds but not as frequently.

I have nosebleeds occasionally, but I blame them on my daily dose of Aspirin. Do you take Aspirin?

low platelets(sp)
you probably have low plate-lets (im not spelling it correctly) in case you dont know what they are, they are little things in your blood that basically clots your blood for you. one of the reasons they were able to diagnose my lupus was because i was having nose bleeds and they were able to see that my plate-lets were so low (i was at 1! now i'm at like 180, if your aywhere under 20 your in danger.)

I have had nosebleeds that bad since I was 5 years old. Now 21 years later I still get them like that so I know what you mean. I go about a month without any and then that next month I have 3-4 within a 2 day period. They are very heavy but they at least don't last the hour or 1 1/2 hours that they used to! I am actually in the "watchful waiting" stage of seeing if I have lupus or may be developing it in the future so who knows if it could be related or not. Now I'm thinking I need to have my platelets checked!!

nose bleeds
I got a gusher last night, from taking medication that my body didn't like. It was a reaction to pain med's...my nose started bleeding like a stream of blood coming out of my nose. I react to medication, and its hard finding one that my body doesn't reject.
