It is the worst in the morning, and all the times I've noticed the blood it has been in the morning. I still have the brownish phlegm
(mostly streaks/spots of it, surronded by clear/white
mucus, it looks like **** from smoking). My chest has never felt sore or tight through this whole thing. Being the hypochondriac that I am, I went to the immediate care center by my house this morning as a reassurance, and the doctor told me the same thing.
