coughing up blood in morning
Almost two weeks ago, I came down with a cold.  About a week ago I started to develop Bronchitis.  Then about five days ago, I started coughing up blood in the morning only.  I went to the doctor the next day and he seemed pretty unconcerned.  I am SLOWLY getting over the bronchitis (The cold id gone), but I still cough up blodd first thing in the morning.  It seems to be from higher in my bronchials, because as the cough gets deeper, the blood goes away.  I have been coughing rather violently since the night before the blood started. Should I be worried?  How long does this usually last?  Is there anyway to promote healing? Anything to help put my mind at ease would be greatly apprieciated.  Thank you.

The blood is probably from fairly severe bronchitis, but you and your doctors must not assume that to be the case.  You should have a chest x-ray.  The approach to this should depend on your age and your smoking history.

The bleeding could have been brought on by violent coughing.  Also blood sometimes drips down from the nose and is coughed up.  Ask your doctor to make sure the blood is not coming from your upper respiratory airways.

For the last two mornings now, my 1st sneeze in the morning contained phlegm with blood. But my succeeding sneezes and cough throught the day didn't show blood. What could be the reason for this?
