59-year-old Mother Always Bleed When She Chokes On Food?
Hello … My mother is 50 years and over. He always choked nosebleed food. Why is that? Could it be because of an illness? Explanation please.
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Nosebleeds or epistaxis are conditions that are marked by bleeding from the nostrils. There are 2 types of nosebleeds, namely anterior and posterior nosebleeds.
Anterior nosebleeds are the most common. Caused by rupture of blood capillaries in the lobe of the lobe. These capillaries are fragile so they break and bleed easily. Nosebleeds usually occur after picking the nose, high heat and other conditions that cause high nasal pressure (such as choking). This type of nosebleed easily stops by pressing on the nostrils. Even a little blood comes out.
Posterior nosebleeds occur due to rupture of blood vessels in the nose near the esophagus. Indicates a disease that needs special treatment. Diseases that can cause this condition are trauma, tumors in the nasal cavity and others. This type of nosebleeds more than anterior nosebleeds, so that the blood until swallowed into the esophagus.
Bring your mother to consult an ENT doctor, if:
1. Blood cannot stop by pressing the nostrils.
2. Blood flows into the esophagus.
3. Nosebleeds occur often to cause pale and weak.
To prevent recurring nosebleeds, your mother should avoid conditions that cause choking, such as talking while chewing.
Thus hopefully useful.
