After 28 years of CH this is the first time that I have had a nose bleed. I suppose my blood pressure goes through the roof during an attack and this might be the cause. Also about two years ago just after one of my worst headaches I noticed that my left eye was blurry so I went to an eye specialist and was diagnosed with a BRVO ( Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion ) which means I have a blood clot in my eye. The eye specialist doesn't seem to think that this was caused by my CH but the timing seems pretty coincidental. He said it was a blood pressure problem. With the pain so intense I think it was the cause. I now have to endure injections in my eye of a drug called Avastin which was developed to combat Bowel Cancer. It tells the body not to produce new blood vessels and therefore restricts the blood flow to the cancers/tumours and restricts their growth. Injected in the eye it stops the eye from bleeding into itself. My eye is getting more stable and I hope to not have these injections soon. I am due for another tomorrow I think this is injection number 20 and I think my eye has deteriorated because of this cluster. I suppose all will be revealed tomorrow as this is my first cluster since the occlusion. Has anyone else had either of these things happen to them?

The most common causes of nosebleeds are drying of the nasal membranes and nose picking (digital trauma), which can be prevented with proper lubrication of the nasal passages and not picking the nose.
