Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up dried blood


Avatar n tn Prior to being admitted I had a significant amount of blood I was given IVs and started treatment for TB Now again I was at work and started coughing up blood . They took X-rays and blood after about six hours later I was told that their was nothing wrong with me and the cause of my bleeding was due to to much coughing when I had not cough prior to this time . Right now I have not being able to go outside because its a little bit cold .
Avatar f tn I'm currently coughing up dried blood that looks like coffee grounds. I've thrown up dried blood like this but never coughed it up like this.
Avatar n tn I have tried everything over the counter as well. She sounds like me. I would ask if she could taek something stronger Only thing that dried up my nose was behind the counter stuff, it contained like 240. Zyrtec. It is once a day good luck!
Avatar n tn I have been coughing up phlegm now for about 5 months. Mostly it is just clear but can sometimes be a small like ball but it is hard and clear. Sometimes the ball can be a brownish color. Most of the phlegm I cough up is brownish or yellowish. I developed a dry unproductive cough about 6 weeks ago but after about 2 weeks it became productive and I havent really suffered with it that much over the last 3 weeks. Last night I started having a very mild dry tickly cough.
1719142 tn?1343012927 I tried looking into what it could be myself, but anything I found about coughing up clumps had nothing really about brown clumps, but rather yellow stinky ones. And mine are cleary not a yellowish color, nor do they smell.They are fairly small but I have been hocking them up more frequently, sometimes as much as four to five clumps in a day. I really could use any help or suggestions on what might be causing it or if there's and infection or problem.
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 n tn I was hoping a medical professional could read my post and see if he/she has any answers for me. I have been coughing up phlegm now for about 5 months. Most times it is just clear but can sometimes be a small like ball but it is hard and clear. Sometimes the ball can be a brownish color. Most of the phlegm I cough up is brownish or yellowish but alot of times it can also just be clear.
Avatar n tn The other week I was eating some cake and somehow some of it went up my nose. I eventually got it down after snorting and blowing my nose. I didnt think too much of it until this week when the same thing happened again except I couldnt get the food down. The problem is now whenever I eat all my food keeps getting caught in my nasal cavity. My left nostril feels rather weird where it joins the bak of my throught, it feels like there is some sort of gap which wont close.
Avatar n tn After 6 months of coughing, a nurse on reviewing my medications discovered I was taking Zestril for high blood pressure. Soon after I stopped taking Zestril the coughing stopped. Seems some blood pressure meds do cause chronic cough. If you are taking a medication for blood pressure, please discuss this with your doctor.
Avatar n tn It's great that your tests were all normal, and i'm sorry you're tasting blood, that must be very worrisome. Expecially the blood that dripped out after coughing at the toilet. This could have been from breaking some small capillaries which is common with forceful coughing. GERD often causes a sour taste which may be part of what you're tasting. I like bhups1's reccommendation to try the GERD treatment for a few weeks and then tell your doc how it's going.
Avatar n tn The brownish part looks like dried up blood to be honest - however there is absolutly no coughing prior or after I spit it out. I'm only 20 years old, but I am a smoker. What really boggles my mind is that I do not cough it up, my sinuses seem perfectly fine and I have no difficulty breathing. I went to see a doctor last week and the only problem she could find is it seemed my throat was irritated. Does anyone have an idea what this could be and where the blood clot is coming from?
Avatar f tn Uhmmm....GROSS. Anyway, coughing up brown mucus can actually be caused by old blood or dried blood, which can change in color due to a hemoglobin loss. The brown phlegm takes on this characteristic color due to these changes in hue once blood has dried out or gotten old. Most of the time, when blood is present in the mucus, it will present itself as such or as brown phlegm. However sometimes, the presence of blood in mucus can result in a black appearance as well.
Avatar n tn If you have brown congestion that could only be dried blood, have you blown really hard??? You need a cortizone nasal spray and also antibiotics for 7-10 days. Augmentin is the best but there is also Amoxicillin, Bactrum, etc.... If you wait to late it can turn into bronchitis or ear infection and ear infections are very painful if you have ever had one. If that infection does not clear up after antibiotics then you need a CT scan like I had.
Avatar m tn Last monday I got a slight sore throat and it continued on to clogged sinuses and runny nose, which are all common for a cold. I've been coughing up phlem/mucus for the last 5 days. Its ranged from clear, to green, to yellow, to brown, and now gray/black. I smoke weed (everyday) and cigarettes (between 0-5 a day). Anyways I have midterms coming up, and naturally the stress makes me smoke more cigarettes.
Avatar n tn My throat has also been hurting and i have been coughing up coagulated nasal mucus, that has dried blood in. Lastly i have been getting headache's that won't go away, and a painful feeling in or behind my eye's. Does anyone have an idea of what i might have, two week's before this i had a tempurature of a 103.8 and i think that this might have something to do with this.
Avatar n tn as a symptom so naturally I panic. No pain whatsoever is associated with this and I've tried coughing up stuff only to get mucous if that. No blood or anything weird. I'm 37 years old, male and unfortunetely smoke which makes me worried. Has anyone else experienced this and I just don't know if I need to be real worried or not.
Avatar f tn hi, my guy has these exact same symptoms. He has always coughed a little after drinking, but over the last year it started progressing. I noticed when he lies on his back at first a couple of years ago. Then it started when he was waking up from sleeping last year. Like he had a tickle in his throat. Now it's more like a gagging cough and he shakes his head and wretches. I have had blood work and xrays and they said everything looks fine so they don't know what is causing it.
Avatar m tn I want to know what could have been wrong with her. I did notice in the yard what looked like dried up feces that was black in color and looked like tar. The way it looked may have been diarriha like. I did not notice any coughing/vomitting.
Avatar n tn the location was just below my bicep ( the usual place they draw blood from ) . Im quite sure the wound already dried up so i took off the band aid . Then later in the night around 12pm ( around 7 hours later ) I went to visit a Thai massage girl . She kissed me abit with saliva on the mouth . I did not tongue her . I am afraid her saliva might have contained HIV virus . Then she proceeded to give me a BJ with a condom on .
Avatar f tn The inside of my nose is very dry and when I am able to blow anything out of my nose its a yellow color mixed with dried up blood and a little bit of clear mucus. I've also been told by my allergist that I have chronic PND (post nasal drip) but have never had this weird sensation in my throat up until 3 days ago. I take Nasonex and Azelstine for my chronic sinus problems and Zyrtec if I absolutely feel I need to. I have Omeprazole for heartburn but am not currently taking this.
Avatar m tn If it were me, I might take a ride to the ER anyway, with just being diagnosed w/ one and now this. How much blood is there? Are you coughing it up every time? Are you vomiting any or just coughing?
Avatar f tn If you suffer from high blood pressure, stop taking the pseudoephedrine. It will increase the blood pressure. High blood pressure you make you feel dizzy. The best way to help yourself to unblock your head and ear congestion (and any congestion in the Eustachian tube) is by doing steam inhalations. To do a steam inhalation, boil up a kettleful of water and pour this into a bowl taking care not to get scalded. Put some Vick or olbas oil or a few drops of any menthol drops into the water.
721523 tn?1331585402 Avoid putting your fingers in your eyes or up to your nose. Hopefully your little ones won't be coughing in your face! Happy Birthday, Ann! I hope it was a wonderful, healthy, and beautiful day!
Avatar n tn Periods always regular until last few years up to cessation. While on vacation recently, experienced a little blood on toilet tissue after wiping. I do have external hemorrhoids and they were flaring up at the time. Coincidently, had had some strange PMS symptoms about a week before. I noticed them and thought how it felt as if I would start my period.
Avatar m tn How should blood spills be cleaned from surfaces to make sure that Hepatitis C virus is gone? Any blood spills — including dried blood, which can still be infectious — should be cleaned using a dilution of one part household bleach to 10 parts water. Gloves should be worn when cleaning up blood spills. How long does the Hepatitis C virus survive outside the body?

Avatar n tn What should be used to remove HBV from environmental surfaces? Any blood spills — including dried blood, which can still be infectious — should be cleaned using 1:10 dilution of one part household bleach to 10 parts of water for disinfecting the area. Gloves should be used when cleaning up any blood spills. Who is at risk for HBV infection?
Avatar f tn and eating very little. Here we go again. Call the vets. So today they did blood work and X-rays. the blood work came back normal. They found a BB in her nose from the X-ray! took it out. They said that she still has blood in her urine. And they don't know why the antibiotics aren't helping her. They mentioned that her ear drum might be broken or a tumor. they referred me to a specialist. any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm lost and confused.
Avatar n tn But the small chronis discomforts linger.Currently, I still have small amounts of blood in my dried nose pickings and i coughed up some green phlem again recently.My nose pickings are green, the same color as the phlegm.I have very slight throat discomfort, like i have to clear my throat more than i should, and my stomach still churns alot, I have noticed alot that when i exhale i can hear a crunching like sound in my stomach alot.I am not certain but i feel some slight dullness in my left ear.
Avatar m tn Good hygiene is important either way but it helps to remember that Hepatitis C is transmitted via blood to blood exchange. Educate yourself as much as possible as it may be up to you to dispel myths and misconceptions about how HCV is spread. Here is a cut and paste from the CDC web site: ★Can Hepatitis C be spread within a household? Yes, but this does not occur very often.
