Coughing blood, sore throat, head throbbing, nose bleed?
so last night i started to get sick & just assumed it was a cold/sore throat. i took nyquil before going to bed, & this morning after brushing my teeth, i coughed up blood. it was kind of a lot, but it ended up with less & less. my throat started to feel worse afterward, & my head was constantly throbbing. i took tylenol & then i took a shower, & the air was on in my house, so it wasn't hot at all around me. but then my nose started bleeding... i checked my body temp & it's around 99.7Â° so i don't know what's going on. i don't know if i should go to the doctor since the whole coughing up blood had stopped. help, please?
Are you sure you didn't brush to hard while brushing? It may the blood from your nose it is all connected. If it has stopped I don't believe you have to run to the you ER. Call your doc and explain the problem and make an app.
go to doc asap that is a sign of seriouse condition such as a lung infection. if u cant get into talk ur insurance company or doc office should have a nursing line where u can talk to a registered nurse
well the ONLY things you can do is
see a doctor.
take advil nd mucus medicine
take a cough drop
blow ur nose
drink hot tea
all the main stuff.
I would still go to the doctor because even if the coughing up blood thing has stopped..there is still that possibilty that it wll happen again and coughing up blood isnt good.
I coughed up blood before and i went to the doctor and found out that i had acid reflux.
Oh wow..honey...Feel better soon!
A number of conditions, diseases, and medical tests may make you cough up blood.
Diseases and conditions may include:
Blood clot in the lung
Inflammation of the blood vessels in the lung (vasculitis)
Inhaling blood into the lungs (pulmonary aspiration)
Irritation of the throat from violent coughing
Nosebleed that drips blood down into the lungs
Systemic lupus erythematosus
When to Contact a Medical Professional
If you have any unexplained coughing up of blood, call an ambulance or go to the nearest emergency department. This is very important if your cough produces large volumes of blood (more than a few teaspoons), or if you also have:
Severe shortness of breath

In an emergency case, your doctor will give you treatments to control your condition. The doctor will then ask you questions about your cough such as:
Are you coughing up large amounts of blood (massive hemoptysis)?
Can you see blood when you cough up something?
How many times have you coughed up blood?
Is there blood-streaked mucus (phlegm)?
Did it begin suddenly?
Has it increased recently?
How many weeks has the cough lasted?
Is the cough worse at night?
What other symptoms do you have?
The doctor will do a complete physical exam and check your chest and lungs. Tests that may be done include:
Chest CT scan
Coagulation studies, such as PT or PTT
Complete blood count
Sputum culture and smear
Coughing up blood is NOT good. GO TO THE HOSPITAL....NOW.
