Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Do you have any shortness of breath?

Also was the nose bleeding heavy?

Mild nose bleeding can be due to the either nasal allergy related dryness or sinus infection if headache also present.

Chest injury can cause muscular pain commonly.

Not serious usually.

But still clinical evaluation recommended.

For nose bleeding over the counter Afrin nasal spray may be tried.

For chest pain over the counter tylenol may be tried.

Advil or aleve can worsen nose bleeding --hence better avoided.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
