Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. SS. I will try my best to help you.
When did all the symptoms develop?
Are you there?
I haven't been feeling too well all day, and I'm in the middle of renovations. after sanding some walls I laid down I awoke about an hour later, I had a headache, running a fever swollen hands the lower part of my arms are sore. Recently I've been getting a lot of blood noses and I injured my leg where I hit it which is not healing
Are both hands swollen?
Is there any redness, pain in the hands or only swelling?
Are we still being helped
There can be an infection or inflammation.
In several infections there can be rise of temperature with shivering.
A collection of pus can cause it.
The injured area can get infected.
Both hands are swollen and red
There can be inflammation of the hands, thrombophlebitis, tenosynovitis.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
Blood counts, X ray/ scan or other tests can be needed.
In case of infection you would need antibiotics.
Is panadol helping with pain?
No nor is it reducing fever
You can take ibuprofen if you do not have any contraindication to it.
This can help with pain & fever better.
Please try to take plenty of fluid.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Dryness of nose or an infection can cause it. Sometimes there can be a polyp, growth etc
High blood pressure can cause nose bleeding.
Please get your blood pressure checked.
