Avatar m tn Is this related? Also i found blood in my mucous in my nostril when i blew my nose, There was quite a lot of blood, I also seem to have blocked ears. What should i do?
Avatar f tn , it can cause capillaries to break and then bleed, which would give you the bloody mucus. Try not to force yourself to cough up the mucus. And if the bloody mucus continues for longer than a week, it may be a good idea to make a doctors appointment just in case.
Avatar f tn Off and on I notice streaks of blood in the mucus in my throat. I have allergies and always have post nasal drip. The mucus is clear, not discolored so I don't think it's an infection. I don't smoke or drink. Can allergies cause blood in your mucus? I don't have the money to go to an ENT and my reg doctor told me he doesn't know. Oh, also, when I notice the blood, I haven't had a bloody nose or picked my nose or anything.
Avatar n tn This was the FIRST time I have EVER smoked a cigarette. Now today, I wake up and cough up blood. The taste of blood is in my mouth, and I guess I damaged my lungs by those two hits. Will this pass? Did I seriously mess up my lungs? Should I see a doctor? What should I do? What does the blood mean? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have talked with all my smoker friends and none have them have experienced this.
Avatar m tn About 3 days ago I got a real bad sore throat and its getting better, but for the last two days I wake up and I cough once and my mucus is thick with blood in it. It only happens in the morning and then i am fine the rest of the day. I am a smoker and about 3 years ago I had an infected lung.... which was easily fixed with antibiotics.... what can be causing this? I have no other signs of a cold and i am getting regular headache but i have had that my whole life ...
Avatar n tn Just recently I started feeling stuffy at night and feeling post nasal drip at night with a dry cough. I have only noticed the blood in my nose mucus tonight and wanted to know if this was another sign of an infection?
Avatar n tn As time has passed every time I blow my nose blood would come out in the mucus. Not a little, not in tiny streaks but alot. The mucus is clear, but with the blood is tinged pink or red. I sometimes have headaches but nothing unusual. Also recently I've been "spitting up" mucus with blood too. Lately I've been feeling really achy and super tired. And my chest hurts, it feels tight. And I've developed a little bit of a cough.
Avatar n tn i can taste infection when i swallow and i keep coughing up mucus that has blood in it, what does blood in my mucus mean?
Avatar n tn Hello, I've been having streaks of blood in my mucus almost every night or morning since April. It's usually just one or two spits either before i go to bed, or right after I wake up. I have also had on and off mild chest discomfort right behind my breast bone. My primary care physician sent me to an ENT for evaluation. I was given a endoscopy with biopsy that came back negative.
Avatar f tn More often than not there is blood in my mucus, however I also tend to wake up or am unable to sleep because of an extremely dry cough. I am worried as to the contagious nature. However I am not nor have I been running a fever. Just extremely achy and miserable.
Avatar n tn My mucus problem seems worse after eating. I cough up and need to spit constantly. I have had this prob all my life but as I age and am now in wheelchair, it has gotten worse. Dr. says I have asthma now. Could the mucus I have had all my life brought the asthma on? I have all kinds of meds from nose drops to anhalers. Nothing seems to help. I had not thought of acid reflux. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
Avatar n tn My daughter is five and during this time she starts with the cough and thick yellow mucus that persist now for 20 days. It doesn't get better or worse and she doesn't seem to be too bother by it. exept at night she seems to have a congested nose and dificulty inhaling. She doesnt' cough at night but she does in the morning and some during the day. I the past years she had ashma symptoms and whezzing but now seems to be more in the nose.
Avatar n tn I have read several messages from people with similar symptoms such as mine - cough mainly in AM with mucus, again in the evening. I plan to try some of the suggestions such as taking an antihistamine/decongestant and a remedy for GERD (although I do not have symptoms of that particular problem). I have been hacking for about 3 months, have been to the doctor who has given me antibiotics along with cough medicines. Seems to help a bit but then I'm hacking again.
Avatar f tn i will get where i cant breathe deep at all and then i will start the coughing spells, sometimes it happens in middle of night while i sleep, or after eating,or just in general then once i cough enough to vomit a very large amount of mucus (and get all of it out ...sometimes harder than others i can breathe again and back to normal. but i have no idea what it is...
Avatar n tn This past weekend when I spit out my mucus there's dime sized blood in it. Mucus is light brown caramel color. This morning I blew my nose and found blood in that as well.
Avatar n tn i have mucus coming into my throat almost daily but without blood. i have never found blood streaks in mucus before this. last month i had an x-ray of my sinuses and a head CT done which were perfectly normal. i did have a headache two days back which stayed for 24 hours but resolved after taking medicines. i am very scared. PLS HELP. WAITING EAGERLY FOR UR REPLY.
Avatar n tn However it is possible that you had a transient rise in blood pressure, resulting in both headache and a broken blood vessel somewhere in your respiratory tract. Put the headache aside for a moment, especially if it has not returned. The most likely problem, with the combination of blood in your sputum and air travel, would be a pulmonary embolus. This is a blood clot in an artery of the lungs. Talk about this with your doctor to see if there are any other reasons to suspect this problem.
Avatar m tn how old are you and do you have a history of smoking? I coughed up blood in mucus just a small bit once, but it has totally freaked me out! Wasn't your dr concerned? What did they say it was?
Avatar n tn for the past 5 days i have the cold but its been 3 days now i have been seeing blood streaks in the mucus when i blow y nose. but now the blood presence in the mucus is increasing. i am o antibiotics already. can you help me???
276681 tn?1335829093 I have a cough that won't go away. As soon as I get over it, I catch another cold and get sick. Could be the change of weather this time or even allergies. Previous one lasted 3 weeks. Even though, I felt fine after the first week. It stuck around for another 2 weeks.

429564 tn?1203802378 This may sound gross, but it looks like bloody mucus. Its not just a speck of blod either, its mainly blood. if anyone can think of the reason, leave a post or message me that would be great!
Avatar n tn Usually blood in the mucus indicates infection. I always get blood streaked mucus with a throat infection.
Avatar f tn I take advair 500 and duoneb for copd and i cough up bloody mucus especially in the am not everyday though had a broncoscope and it was clear is this a side effect?
Avatar m tn In most cases in a 3 year old, physicians will try a trial course of upper airway treatment (antihistamines and possibly antibiotics, if sinusitis is suspected) to if this controls the cough. In other cases, where asthma or lower airway reactivity is considered, a trial with inhaled steroids and or other anti-inflammatory medication (leukotriene inhibitor) is instituted.
