Good idea to go to see your GP Steve just to be checked again. The Brompton need to keep an eye on things too.

Good luck xxxxx

Most of us cough up blood at some stage during our lives,often as a result of minor blood vessel damage or infection as the Brompton have indicated.I think perhaps in future you could possibly describe your symptoms as effectively as showing us a picture.Maybe you need to see your Gp for reassurance that all is well...........regards skis and scruffy cat.

I have the same issue from time to time. In my case it turned out to be post nasal drip from bloody noses, even though you don't always know your nose is bloody. Now I can always tell because after I cough up a little blood I blow my nose and there's always a little blood in the tissue.

Hi

I’ve had so many test to be told not lungs just upper respiratory and asthma. I never cough and not produce something. Often yellow, green occasionally orange and rarely blood.

Always assumed that any blood was just a broken blood vessel.

It is so very frustrating isn’t it.

I always have low grade infection, normally mixed with H Influenza which seems to like where it is as just will not go.

I am so very tired all the time. It look fine.

I’ve found that this site is excellent and the knowledge and mpathy the members have is unparalleled.

Never be afraid to g9 back, that they have taught me!

We all have similarities and many differences. For thirty years l thought l was the only one and seems for 100% mate to anyone else l am but l have found many ho have similar traits.

If in doubt, see GP

I.was worried about cancer or pulmonary fibrosis or copd but they said a high resolution ct scan normal bronhoscopy and normal pft rules out this conditiona

Good news then..some suggestions if I may: how about seeing an ENT for your larynx and a gastroenterologist for an endoscopy..talking from personal experience..

Take care x

Is that on top of other condition or its a separate disease

I have Asthma bronchiectasis & ABPA which is a form of Aspergillis there are a few different types buts it's usually people that have had asthma or cystic fibrosis get it.
