How can you have spontaneous nose bleeds? I have never even had a nose bleed ever...
I got them regularly, even in my sleep, when I was on the depo birth control shot. It happens to some people when the air is dry and causes their nasal cavity to become too dried out. Drugs consumed through the nose can cause it after time too. There are reasons it can happen.
There are periods of time where I happen to get spontaneous nosebleeds quite frequently. They even happen when I sleep-- it sucks to wake up to a face covered in blood and a stained pillow, like something from a horror movie. For whatever reason, they were more of a problem when I was younger. I remember seeing a doctor for it, and I believe he said it had something to do with changes in temperature contributing to ruptured capillaries in my nose. He gave me some medication to take for a while, and I've gotten far fewer nosebleeds ever since. Anyway, my personal experience aside, spontaneous nosebleeds can obviously happen to plenty of other people-- not experiencing something for yourself has no bearing on whether or not it can actually occur.
OP, this happens to me too even when there's plenty of humidity due to blood vessels be abnormally close to the skin's surface in the nose and thus easily rupturing & bleeding. In grade school, it got so bad that my ENT doc cauterized it. Of course, my dad had no problem w/ eating out that night @ buffet restaurant despite the long strip of white medical tape keeping the extra-large, sticking-out wad of gauze from falling out of my nose.... :-(
