    Hi, I hope you feel better now. I would guess this would just be temporary pain from the stomach acid - is that what it feels like? However, there is a much bigger issue which you are already aware of: the illness as a whole! Sorry if I've come late to a conversation you are already having, but have you seen the doctor about that at all? Anyway please keep posting and asking for help and advice whenever you feel like it. My thoughts are with you!

    Well when i am sick my nose burns. Is it like a stingy burning feeling? But it depends on how much i sick up for it to hurt. If there isnt a lot then my nose is fine, but if its a lot then my nose really hurts.

    Ive had that too when ive been sick, but like Soph001 said it's probably just temporary.

    A year? That's terrible! Have you looked around on the internet for support groups meanwhile, like at Beat or this massive list of places?

    I'm not an expert but I think the fact that your nose is bleeding may mean some actual damage is being done. If you think you would like to go back to the doctor, always feel free, even if you've been about the same thing. This is a new symptom, of course.
