Hi - introduction & question please
Hello, everyone. My name is Angie and I just found this site by accident actually, but would love to join. I'm 50 years old and live in Canada. I'm hoping that by spending time reading the boards, I can get/share advice for the migraine headaches I've had practically my whole life and also to stay healthy as I am an ovarian cancer survivor.
My first question is regarding my 14 year old son. While at school yesterday, he was leaning on his cheek with his hand for quite some time and all of a sudden he said "blood started pouring out". Both he and his teacher thought it was coming from his nose, but when he got to the office he realized it was his face. He came home once the bleeding stopped and there was a mark exactly like a hive or mosquito bite with a tiny red dot in the middle. He said this is where all the blood was coming from. Of course, he's insistent that he's not going to the doctor for this. Does anyone have any ideas about why this happened?
