  • Get yourself to the Doc's asap, I don't know what is causing it but think you should get checked out for peace of mind. Take care xx

  • thank you Gilly, it is not alot and as I have said its when I huff it up after my nebuliser. It is one of these problem should I shouldn;t I thank you for you comments

  • Thank you syibm see my answer to Gilly. Many thanks. xx

  • Agree with gilly. Try not to panic (easier said than done). Do you also have 0.9% saline - maybe a bit less harsh than the hypertonic at the mo. As gilly says getting checked out will give you peace of mind to enjoy Christmas with your family.

  • I have C.O.P.D and have been coughing up dark blood, I went to the Doc's they don't care, I am now spitting up redder than red blood, " sorry I hope this makes sense " it's like cutting your finger and just clear red blood, it isn't dark anymore, I did get the camera up my nose ( sorry ) and into my lungs, wasn't as bad as I thought, but if you have a good Doctor you will be ok. Take Care Everyone, Merry Christmas and God Bless you ALL....Ivan
