For some time now I have occasionally awoken with blood in my mouth which I assumed was due to the Sjogrens and my having a dry mouth. Drs and consultants are aware of this problem and have issued various medications to keep my mouth moist.
My concern is that despite my being very red on my chest area nobody has thought of carrying out a doppler scan to see if anything more sinister is going on.
I am a snorer due to being a mouth breather but I am Aps positive and do wonder about clots as this blood is only occasionally happening. Dr D'Cruz was concerned about the reddening on my chest but simply wrote to my Gp to get me referred to a sleep clinic. I have had a chest xray carried out but not a doppler scan.
I am beginning to feel like the bride of Dracular in the mornings.........of cause it could be just a burst blood vessel that is the problem but I do feel it needs investigating.
Has anyone else experienced this ? I am on clopidogrel for my Aps.
