Spitting blood after i wake up & Scratchy throat
Jan 4, 2007

I just had my Xray last week and i'm clear of TB, Now After i wake up i am spitting up blood at leat 6 x then after that it goes away. On work when i am getting tired my throat get dry and when i spit again theres a blood. Is this serious? And what kind of disease is this?

Response from Dr. Young

It's very difficult to pinpoint the cause of blood in your "spit". This could come from bleeding anywhere from your lips and gums to your sinuses or your lungs. The fact that your chest xray is normal is reassuring, but since you mention TB, I'd definitely want to know more about what's going on in your lungs.

I'd advise you to have your doctor take a look. BY
