Coughing blood

Nirajtayde profile image

I found some blood in my sputum 5days ago on 19 October and from that day it continued. Actually i don't think that i have infection because i don't cough frequently(3 to 4 times per hour) and neither do i have fever but i have throat infection in past week on 12 October . I found blood mostly at morning and rest of day is normal sputum. When i try to cough there is pain between my left arm and neck close to sternum .

It just an infection or it pointing to major problem.plz anyone could help

Any coughing up blood requires further investigation, although it may just be sticky thick mucus tearing the tiny blood vessels. Drink a glass of water first thing may help thin the mucus.

A chat with your GP would not go a miss.

You must see your doctor as soon as possible this symptom is not a good sign I know from personal dealings with my husband go today

Probably nothing to worry about, but best see your Dr.

Absolutely, please see your PCP.. Any sign of blood is a cause for concern..
