Nosebleeds...HELP! *TMI*

I have a blood clotting disorder. It's not severe enough to require prescription blood-thinners, but I do take low-dose aspirin once a day. I've recently started having frequent and SEVERE nosebleeds, that take over half an hour to stop, no matter what I do.

I've tried everything I can think of. Saline spray, humidifier, styptic pencil, nosebleed plugs, and pinching my nose just makes the blood back up into my sinuses and down my throat. I also drink plenty of water, and I take 1000mg of Vitamin C daily. I'm going to try grapeseed extract next, but it'll have to wait until I get paid again. 

I've tried going to the doc, only to be told what I already know, and get sent home. This is happening several times a week, and I'm getting tired of having to wash blood out of my pillows and clothing. 

Any advice?
