Avatar n tn what could be the cause of coughing up blood have been doing this since June of last year and doctors cannot get to the bottom of it, this is very concerning to me what could it be, they have ruled out tb, mono, valley fever, have even done a bronochsopy nothing showing up
Avatar n tn If there is bleeding elsewhere, coughing up blood, dark colored stool, bleeding gums while brushing teeth, an examination of blood components would be a good first step. Stay positive.
Avatar n tn But the big scare I have is when I take out my tampon, which I change about every hour to 2 hours, there are blood clots on it. Then when I am sitting on the toilet, more blood clots come out, and also when I wipe with toilet paper. They aren't HUGE like everyone else is saying, but they are bigger than a quarter, and it's never happened before & I started my period for the first time when I was 14. What should I do? Or is this all normal?
Avatar n tn This can cause chest pain, shortness of breath or coughing up phlegm tinged with blood. In severe cases it can be fatal. PE can happen hours or even days after the DVT has formed, and may occur when there have been no obvious signs of a DVT. You should seek emergency medical treatment if you have symptoms of PE.
Avatar n tn And the next day, I started coughing up small amounts of blood, sometimes combined with mucus, sometimes just blood clots, the blood seemed dark, not pink, and I didn't cough blood all the time, I would cough some blood, then it stopped, and maybe much later that day, or the next day, some more blood..
Avatar n tn Hi everyone, yesterday I brought my wife home from the hospital (7 days) after she was admitted for having blood clots. She has a blood clot in her upper arm/shoulder area, and a blood clot in each lung. The ONLY risk factor she has towards blood clots is that she is on birth control. She has been on Yasmin for around 4-5 months now (she was previously on orthotricyclin). My wife is 25 and a non-smoker.
Avatar n tn I followed his advice and its been about a week and i am worse then i was and still coughing up blood. My chest pain is now constant and i get short of breath easily. My heart feels like its going to pump out of my chest. So i am just wondering what else could be going on or if this could just be really bad bronchitis any suggesions would be great thankyou.
Avatar f tn One week after the surgery he felt pain in his chest, he couldn't breath and he was coughing with blood. We went to the emergency , they did an XRay and CT test and discovered blood clots in both lounges- pulmonary embolism. He stayed in the hospital for 3 days and was discharged five days ago. after they did eco and dopler tests . Now he is taking 5 mg coumadin and fragmin injection a day.
Avatar f tn My husband has been coughing up blood for 14 days. I took him to the ER day 1 and his CT scan, chest xray, and labs all normal. He took a zpak with no results. He says that he typically feels "fine" otherwise. The episodes, I have noticed, seem to be more severe at night and in the morning. When we presented to the ER he did have a low-grade fever and his bp was 179/95. He normally runs around 120's. When he originally began coughing up blood he was doing hanging leg raises.
Avatar m tn Her appetite is back and she is able to take a deep breathe again. She still is coughing up gunk but its less now than previously.
645331 tn?1224009865 im just out of hospital (2nights) with possible blood clots in my chest. they couldn't x-ray me as i am 3 months pregnant. they took blood tests and are convinced that i do not have a blood clot it may just be bad muscle pain. when i got home i took a coughing fit and heard and felt a huge popping noise in my chest and severe pain after it.. it is very painfull to move certain ways, breath and cough. have i got broken ribs?
633537 tn?1222560808 they admitted him and checked for heart problems and possible blood clots. the answer was no to both, but they continued to give him shots near his navel for blood thinning. he was told he had bronchitis and a touch of pneumonia. after 2 days he was released,but his chest still aches and he is still coughing. i am worried about him since he is 67 yrs old and had been shot during a vietnam tour and part of his liver and stomach is gone due to that trauma.
Avatar n tn I am constantly straining muscles from the intense coughing, I've coughed up blood twice. I finally had a CAT scan and it shows that my lungs are fine, except from some harmless scarring from prolonged coughing. Antibiotics have no effect on the cough. I've used Tussionex (codeine cough syrup) for years, but drs. don't like to prescribe it, so I use it when I can't stand it any more to make it last. The cough leaves me so exhausted, and my muscles painful, and it's almost impossible to sleep.
Avatar f tn If you're coughing up blood you really should get it checked out ASAP. I would be concerned that it could potentially be a serious medical condition such as a Pulmonary Embolism. I have a condition called May-Thurner Syndrome and it can cause Fatigue and Blood Clots. Hopefully it's something less serious but it really should be checked out!
Avatar m tn I am still coughing up a little blood two days after this). I first went to urgent care, then later that evening emergency. I had several tests including D-Dimer to check for clots, ct-scan of brain, x-ray of chest, and bloodwork...all negative or good. In emergency they admitted me to get tests done w/ MRI of head for possible M.S. and MRA of neck for constricting blood vessels and also echocardiogram of heart to check for hole. All negative/good.
Avatar n tn I had black clots of blood sometimes a day or two after my episodes of coughing up blood. I never saved my blood, but last Nov 23 i spent the night in the hospital in Boston, coughing up tons of blood and no-one wanted to save it, they just glanced at how much i was coughing up. To me it seemed like so much since it was all night but they said it was still probably 1/2 cup, which if you're the one coughing it, it's alot.
390388 tn?1279639813 Your arteries are becoming inflamed at that reading and you will start to experience high blood pressure as well as be at risk for blood clots in your heart arteries. You need to strive for a fasting blood sugar reading of no more than 100, and believe me, if you ignore that advice, there are consequences of heart, eye, kidney disease. I'd advise you to contact your health professional and report the bp reading/blood sugar results asap.
Avatar n tn My doctor sent me to a gastric doctor who said I was in the wrong place as blood will not come up unless you are throwing up. He suggested the ear/nose/throat dr. I had an appointment I had to cancel and I thought it had gone away til today when it happened twice. It was only happening at night I would wake up with that taste and spit. Now it's coming during the day. I do not smoke or have allergies. I do feel something is not right in my throat area.
Avatar n tn My stomach has swollen to the point where it looks like I'm pregnant (even though I'm definitely not). Recently, when I tried to run on a treadmill, I could not stop coughing up some gross mucus. These symptoms are very embarrassing and very scary. Does anyone have any idea what this is or what I should ask my doctor? I want to be a well informed patient so that I can ask questions and look up everything before I go to another appointment. Thank you very much for all of your help.
Avatar n tn One time, I awoke chocking because of the blood in the throat. I AM NOT COUGHING - it is like the blood just suddenly appears. I have had several tests including a cat scan, a chest x-ray, sinus CT scan, blood tests and a bronchoscopy. All test results come back normal. I was a smoker but quit 20 years ago. Why can't my doctors find the source of this blood? It is bright red and has several small clots in it - it is at least a tablespoon of blood.
Avatar n tn I am a 43 year old female with a 20 year + history of thyroid disease and migraine. I have had two thyroid surgeries due to nodules, last surgery in 1987. I have migraine with aura and aura without the migraine pain. I have been on synthroid, fioricet and cardizem for several years. The cardizem is for migraine preventative, not high blood pressure. About a year ago I was under a huge amount of stress for a few months.
Avatar f tn Today Ebony's nose has been yet again bleeding horribly, while she is trying to stop her nose from bleeding she is also choking and coughing up blood clots which also sometimes come out of her nose she has filled containers and trash cans with blood clots and blood. Talk about frustrating to not have answers over 6 months with this happening off and on.
Avatar f tn I have had some chest pain (nothing major but discomfort on a daily basis), and have been back to my GP again, I have had 3 courses of anti biotics, and any excersion leaves me very tired and with an increased discomfort in my chest. I'm not coughing up blood anymore, and within a bout 7 -10 days the clots and thin streaks of blood had stopped. I was told blood in the stomach was not uncommon for this type of operation but to inhale is not normal and potentially dangerous.
Avatar n tn What could be the problem if you are having chest pains and spitting up blood clots?
Avatar n tn I began coughing up blood and clots. for about 12 hours then slowly subsided. Dr.s found no exact cause. what could cause this?
Avatar n tn I'm taking warfarin now and everything seems to be alright, until this morning. I'm coughing up blood again, not a lot but it's noticeable. I'm not in pain when breathing but I do have chest pain which has been normal for me since the embolism. My question is..should I be concerned about coughing up blood? Is it normal 6-7 months after an embolism to do so? My doctor isn't in today as it's Saturday and I'm not sure what to do about this. Any input would be appreciated.
