Blood when blowing nose - dangerous?
for the past three days I've had a headache, particularly around my left eye. It's felt like a pressure behind it, more intense in the evenings. I haven't had a fever or any other symptoms, and my nose hasn't felt like it's been blocked or anything.
Anyway, I started thinking maybe I might have sinusitis, and then I blew my nose and a heap of blood came out! It was terrifying. It only came out from one sinus, I think, or at least not as forcefully from the other one.
I just wanted to ask if this is normal or if anyone's had it. I'm really freaked out as I've never had a nosebleed in my life. There's no way I'm going to be bleeding to death from this? There's no blood running out from my nose on it's own, but if I swipe it with paper it'll come back red. I don't taste blood, just now anyway.
I'm quite freaked out and would appreciate any help! Quite afraid I'm either going to bleed to death or that I have brain cancer, to be quite honest.
