today i learned – tues 7th july 2018

with all of this hot and cold fluctuating weather, some of us are lucky enough to suffer from nosebleeds 🙄 but what actually are they?

#tdil what on earth a nosebleed actually is 🤔 (you’d be amazed how hard it is to find an answer to that simple question 🙄)

due to the position of the nose (slap bang in the centre of your noggin) there’s a very large number of blood vessels in there 👃🏻

for that reason, any small trauma can cause these blood vessels to rupture … and cause a fair amount of bleeding 😢 even if the trauma is tiny 😅

love today’s fact because it’s so simple 😂 (which is perfect because i’m super ill 😷) … it’s basically a case of your nose being blood vessel central … which means there’s lots of blood if any of them get disturbed and broken 🤷🏻‍♂️

i feel a little like i’m ripping you off with this fact today … so here’s a bonus fact 😏 – the medical term for a nosebleed is ‘epistaxis’ 🤓

short one today! 🙈
