    Nose bleed then fainting?????

    My girlfriend gave me quite the scare last night. First it started with a nose bleed that last about 5 minutes or so. Nothing too bad, just a light amount of blood on a tissue, nothing excessive. The nose bleed then stopped and she because light headed and dizzy and she described she saw black spots when she open her eyes along with her general vision of the surroundings. For the next half hour she kept fainting. She wouldn’t be out for more then 2-3 seconds before she regained consciousness. She continued like this back and forth for about 30mins. She generally was awake and conscious I would say about every 15-30 seconds she would faint. The faint period would be very brief 1-3 seconds at most as I was trying to keep her focused on controlling this. In the last 6 months this is the 3rd time this has happened.

    Im trying to convince her to see a doctor but for the time being any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    I dont know if there is a medical cause to it, but does she get really anxious when she is bleeding? Perhaps seeing her own blood is overwhelming for her?

    She seemed very calm during the nose bleed. We were casually watching TV on the couch. Then came the fainting and dizziness imediately after.
