A few weeks ago i had a really bad cold which went into my chest.During one coughing fit i brought up some blood in my phlegm, i went to the doctor who checked me out and sent me for a chest xray. That was 10 days ago and the results were clear,i no longer have the cold but i sometime have a slight pain in my throat and every moring when i wake up i have blood in my saliva.Somtimes i can taste blood during the day at the back of my throat.Do you think i may have ruptured a blood vessell with the coughing and if so how long should this take to clear up
