Avatar n tn There can be situations whereby infections or damage to the nasal cavity can cause minor bleeding, this then overnight has chance to pass down the pharynx into the trachea resulting in a 'bloodied' mucus. However, in this case it is impossible to make any form of diagnoses without knowing a little bit more about your situation. How long this has been going on for? Also do you smoke? Is the blood present as a pink mucus or as diluted blood (ie with saliva)?
Avatar n tn Hi, if your phlegm is green in colour it may be that you have an infection and sometimes with an infection there can be small amounts of blood and you should then see your doctor to perhaps get an antibiotic. If the phlegm is not green as long as it is not large amounts of blood then as jaja says it may be due to excessive coughing. Again i am not a doctor but i do work in the field of respiratory medicine. if you are concerned then speak to your doctor.
Avatar m tn 2 weeks ago, after working out, I began couging severly for about 30 seconds. After it ended I began couging up a small about of blood. In all it probably measured up to almost a tablespoon, and then ended. The next morning my chest felt like someone had hit me with a baseball bat. I went to the doctor the following day and he listened to my lungs, did the normal pushing of my stomach, checked ear, nose, and throat, and ran some blood tests.
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 f tn Hey ladies. I am 12 weeks and for the past few days when I awake in the morning, I spit out small amounts of blood. It always stops. I'm not sure what it could be. I have yet to be able to see my IV he is out the office a lot. Anyone else experience this before?
Avatar f tn THen i was having like an orange color diarrhea, but my stomach feels fine now--still diarrhea in mornings..orangy. and the last two days I have been coughing up a small amount of blood. today i blew my nose there was blood there too. I am not coughing that much. I only cough if I feel the mucus in my throat--but no trouble breathing, no pain, ..I am a nervous wreck about the blood though,,should i go to emergency room..its sunday...I will call my dr tomorrow.
Avatar f tn Are these episodes of coughing up blood accompanied by any other symptoms? Do you have abdominal pain, do you ever have bloody stools? Gastrointestinal problems like ulcers can also be the cause but not likely given that it is only a small amount. Do you have nose bleeds? Pain in throat? I think with the ct scans someone is definitely on the right track. Be patient and try not to think the worst scenario. It could be something really simple.
Avatar m tn Finally today I still feel really tired and I had a brief period (1 hour) of heavy coughing and I noticed that a few times I had coughed up some blood mixed with mucus (small amounts). Then I still have the irregular bowl movements and now the stool is black in color (but i don't know if its because of the Pepto Bismo or blood, there does seem to be red traces floating around the stool).
Avatar m tn t feel any pain in my chest or throat, or a shortness of breath, and this is the first time I have ever coughed up blood. Now I do occasionally cough up bits of marijuana resin in my phlegm so I don't know if it is related or not. My friend told me that sometimes during the Winter months your nose can bleed and it can go into your lungs, but the amount of blood that came up didn't seem enough for a nose bleed. I'm a little worried, I hope I don't have lung cancer, please help.
937826 tn?1261333879 I have another questions I have been doing alot of coughing been coughing up alot of plehm but for the past half hour I have been coughing up blood not a smear of blood but a half dollar size amount of blood each time should I worry about this.
Avatar n tn I may be wrong, but I believe ERs have to see you even if you have no insurance and no money. You could call the hospital first and ask their policy to save her a trip until you find one that does. I am just a layperson, but her "slipping away" and coughing up blood worry me. The shortness of breath and hand tingling could be anxiety, but the slipping away and coughing up blood I know of no non-medical reason for.
Avatar f tn None of that helped me, except massive amounts of water made it easier to cough up (but we are talking 1 1/2 litres straight water, plus juice and tea and food for me who is 85ibs). What completely got rid of the muscous was high dose omega 3 supplement. I take a 1000mg gel cap (400EPA, 200DHA I think ...) 3 times a day.
206807 tn?1331936184 Never had an esophageal bleed but once those vessels burst it entails a lot more than just coughing up blood. As a rule those blood vessels just don't seal themselves back up and bleeding out can happen quickly. Did you see Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart? He was a bad alcoholic and towards the end the old boy was dying from the booze, p-issing himself, coughing up blood and on his way out. That was a pretty fair depiction of a raging alcoholic.
Avatar f tn Only every now and them I feel like I have mucus so when I cough a little bit of mucus and blood comes up and my throat burns for a bit. Did I cut my throat and just not realize it or is it something else?
Avatar n tn been coughing for a couple of weeks little bit of fever very tired went to a walk in clinic a couple of days ago and the Doctor said it was mostly allergies gave me antibotics,congestion,cough syurp,nasal spray....this morning when I woke up I was coughing up blood in my phlegm the first 3 times then it cleared up....
Avatar n tn Well, you definitely need a work-up by a pulmonary specialist. That being said, coughing up blood maybe very serious, and then again may not be very serious, so don't think you necessarily have a fatal illness. There are many possibilities.
Avatar m tn Well, if you are coughing up blood, a responsible adult in your life should be told so you can be seen by a doctor. I doubt I have to state the obvious that inhalation of smoke from weed isn't good for you. but coughing up blood is something that requires medical care so you need to talk to your parents about seeing a doctor.
Avatar n tn I told him that I was not coughing up blood nor had I been coughing up blood. My family doctor then stated to me that I would cough up blood and then it would be too late for me. I have trusted my family doctor for some years, but I felt this was a very negative statement by him to me. I have deeply researched COPD, try to remain encouraged and I felt this doctor was giving me an immediate death sentence. This has greatly upset me.
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 n tn A few times when I have wiped after urinating there have been small amounts of brown and light red discharge. This has also occurred after I have strained to have a bowel movement (the joys of constipation!!). I'm not having any pains with the disharge but was just a little concerned about the spotting. Has this happened to anyone else here?
