You might want to try some Elderberry for the sinus/allergy problems.  I have GERD too and recently discovered Nux Vomica - in time it can even cure ulcers.  I hate taking Prilosec or Nexium as eventually they cause other health problems.  I have also taken Chinese Curing Pills from the health food store.  They help this problem, too. I prefer natural supplements as I don't want any more chemicals in my body.

Did you ever find out what those "white" bumps were behind your front teeth?  My grandson has Hemochromatosis and had extra "small" teeth growing behind his front teeth. They had to be removed.

Nobody here has mentioned snoring or sleep apnea.  How many of you that are waking to bloody drool, snore?  My husband snores so badly, his uvula gets swollen.  He drools blood as well. Mouth breathing and snoring dries out the tonsils and tissues and then rattles them.  The Blood in his spit disappeared when he lost 30 pounds and cured his sleep apnea that way.

When i wake, my spit is bloody. I have to rinse several times before I brush, then after brushing, more bloody saliva. I don't believe its just my gums because my initial spit is bloody before I brush. May 27th I broke my nose. Could that have anything to do with it? Also, I swallowed some listerine trying to gargle. Could THAT have anything to do w/ it?

I have high blood pressure for around 10yrs already and controlled with bp maintenance drugs and I am fine with my bp. The past last month, I am feeling taste of blood in my mouth seems like when you have a nose bleed feeling. The tastes happen often with very light shade on my spit but not really bothering me. Whats bothering me is I spit some blood after any of the following.
a. Right after climax during masterbation (masturbation).
b. If I exceed too much pressure holding my breath while taking a bowel movement.
c. Feels the blood in my mouth when I put my head down too long.

This happens all the time if I exert too much pressure and since blood goes up to our head when we exert a lot of pressure, I am thinking it is cause by that.

What seems to be the problem. My doctor does not know either.

d. Alliviated pressure when coughing I bleed in similar fashion.

It seems bleeding is caused by alleviated pressure when body is subjected to extreme pressure, blood rises to brains which causes bleeding thru the mouth like a nose bleed.

Any ideas internists?

Hi Dr. I see some traces of Blood ( earlier thin blood now some thickened Clots) in my Mucus early Morning. I went for Blood tests and sputum test and got some viral infection detected in my blood . Also I have had a terrible sore throat with extreme pain in my throat with fever for one day and took medicines and throat infection seems ok but lots of mucus still seems to be blocked in my chest and nose . Now when I gush up the mucus and clear my throat i see thick traces of Blood ( clot ) earlier 2 days ago they was thin blood and i used to taste blood in my mouth. I am still on the same medication for Viral infection that targeted my throat but I dont understand where is the blood coming from now , when I feel  no pain in my throat am so worried please suggest ???? also just to let you know I dont smoke or drink !!

I've just recently started sitting out blood, but I've been constantly sick this year, I used to smoke, but now I don't apart from Pot which I've only been smoking t
Since the start of the year, before I had the blood I was feeling sicker then usual and vomited in the morning, I haven't yet been to the doctor but I have been told it could be something to do with a sinus or stomach infection.

I'm 52, male. For past 2 yrs I've been waking up to find occasional bloody saliva stains on bed sheets. I also spit blood occasionally. I don't smoke, am fit, healthy and not overweight.
Bloodstains tend to coincide with late eating or drinking the evening before. Im a very heavy snorer and this is made worse with drink. Perhaps this is causing blood release? I'm a mild asthmatic and started using an inhaler recently and have noticed an increase in staining. Some reaction in the throat to the spray perhaps?
In any case, having read all posts in this forum, I've decided that this condition is almost certainly not a major issue and now don't feel the need to visit a doctor.

That is Too serious to go to this forum. Please see an internist. Left side hurting and blood spitting maybe related to lungs or heart valve.

Please see an internist right away, it maybe serious.

My case though, I had an internist looked at my story and found out nothing was wrong with me. Cause of my blood spitting from extreme pressure or alleviated pressure was due to a little vein rapture which was caused by extreme pressure. Some special antibiotics handled it pretty much.

I am writing myself to let others know how I am doing now, well I saw the doctor and who said its just some infection in throat and the cause is due to bust of capillaires in throat, no need to worry or panic as doctor said to me and after taking some antibiotics, It went off... so I suggest others to get checked up by ENT specialist and take prescribed medicine to get yourself relaxed. Happy recovery to all.

Hi all,

I'm glad I stumbled on this site hoping someone can share advice or related experience.

I've been spitting blood for 8 months already. But I feel no pain and I am not coughing and I don't have colds. There are no other symptoms. Before, blood was seen in the saliva once a month then, it became twice a month.

I first went to an Internal Med doctor, however, after seeing the color of the blood I was spitting (I took a picture of it), she advised me to see an ENT instead. Color was bright red.

I did lots of tests. My chest X ray was okay and my lungs were perfectly normal. I am not a smoker and haven't tried even once. I also do not drink hard liquors.

In an endoscopy, my ENT found a mass on my left nose and advised for a CT scan and a nasopharyngeal mass biopsy which I did. CT scan/biopsy results were okay and operation was successful.

However, 2 months after, I spitted blood again. My doctor advised for MRI and some other tests. MRI results were also okay. I really could not understand why I'm spitting blood again. Maybe it's because of my surgery and stress/pressure made me bleed again? But it's been 2 months already?

Your thoughts are really appreciated.
Thank you.

Hello!
Sorry for my english, I am not very good with it!
I saw blood in my saliva for three months. I did a lot of tests and everything was ok.
I didn't know what to do, every time a grow up early a split a blood, sometimes it happened during the day too.
After a lot of examination and tests i found what problem is and now 1 year latter the problem is gone.
What caused the problem?
It all that stress and all that preoccupation it caused from teeth.
I gone to the dentist and detailed clean the teeth (which it tooked about 45 min) from stones and everything  although I am very careful caring them.
It seems to be a gap between two teeths and when I suck the saliva, I thought that the blood is coming from my lounge or  throat but no, the blood  it came from that gap.
I never would not believe that gap would cause so much stress and problems to me, but a year from there I am very good with health and I dont have that problem anymore.
I hope some one would help this and I know the feeling when someone split blood.

Hi, I'm twelve years old and recently experienced a bit of blood in the morning coming from the back of my throat and have a list in mind of possible diseases it could be but I'm not so sure. It started just this morning before I brushed my teeth and have also had hiccups recently on and off. I'm not sure if there is a relation between the two symptoms but I am planning on going to a doctor ASAP just to be sure it's nothing serious. I would love to hear from some doctors from here as well. PS: I don't think it has to do with my lungs. Typically this could be a symptom of a lung infection e.g. tuberculosis but I did not hear any suspicious weezing noises as one would hear. Please reply soon!

Hi Doctur Mathur. My son has a common problem with people who posted their health concern here about blood in saliva.

I would like to ask your expertise about my 8-year old son's condition. Just  3 weeks ago, his condition started when he had a stuffy nose. I nomally don't give antibiotics or decongestant as what his pedia had advised unless the said condition ran a week or so. So, I just asked him to drink a lot of water instead then it stopped for 1 week then it came back again. Just this 2nd week of June 2014, he snorted with little blood on his mucus then after that, when he tried to spit there was slightly maroon color to little light red blood on his saliva. Prior to slight nosebleeding, my son complained of abdominal pain. For the record, my son was diagnosed for acute gastritis at the age of 3. In addition, my son used to have brochitis (I'm not sure if it's slight or acute)  when he was a lot younger but he was totally cured then. It's his first time to experience nasal discharge with slight nosebleed then little blood on his saliva.

I tried to see a doctor but unfortunately, there was no available pedia 2 days agon in my city so we ended up to see a family doctor instead. We told the doctor his medical history and so far the doctor gave an impression of: ACCUTE GASTRITIS AND NASOPHARYNGITIS. As usual, the doctor did not give us any meds for his nose instead only meds for his gastritis which PREVACID FDT.


As a mother, this is quite alarming because I believe he is a healthy boy though he's thin and only weighs 22kgs. He still spits once in a while with little blood even no stuffy nose anymore. I don't know if the blood comes from his abdomen but his stool is normal with brown color, I don't know if the slight bleeding comes from his gums for he has many tooth decay for not all his milk teeth  have fallen. We are just waiting for the new teeth will come out.

Please help me understand of what is happening to him based on the information given. I look forward to your reply. P.S. I highly appreciate also to please send your reply to my email if you may: ***@**** for I can't always be online.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Chen

Hello, about 6-8 years ago, I had the blood in saliva symptom. It lasted for perhaps a year. In that time, I saw dentist, GI, ENT, and primary. Also Gyn. No cause was determined. My lungs were checked - no problems there. I do have gum issues - no wisdom teeth - but at the time, there was no dental cause. The GI said an endoscopy showed some blood in my stomach but no reason (ulcers, polyps etc. ) for it. I was diagnosed w mild GERD. I took an OTC for it and propped my head while sleeping for a bit. All in all, it was suggested I monitor the symptom as well as my stress.
After a few months, the symptom dissipated.
Flash forward to tonight. I woke after sleeping for just a bit and had the taste in my mouth. Went to the bathroom to spit - ugh - same thing many of you describe that I remember: red blood in my saliva. I spit a few times and it goes away. I swish with water; it's gone.
I went back to sleep and woke again a bit later - same taste. I swished first this time - nothing. I spit after drawing saliva from my throat - blood. Same pattern: after spitting a few times, my saliva is clear. This is as I remember from years back.
It's very disconcerting, even having gone through it before.
I'm 50, female, and due for a colonoscopy so will discuss this and some ibs like symptoms I'm having with a GI when I go. I did have a stomach ache today, but attributed it to not eating and too much (GERD-inducing) coffee. I'll go to the dentist and I'm due for an annual, so will review all with my primary doctor.
I no longer smoke and haven't regularly for years. I do drink - a bit too much wine at times. I don't usually drink soda, but found that soda / carb bev comment interesting because I've had soda over the past few days.
I am under more stress than usual right now. I am aware that stress manifests physical symptoms for me. I've been experiencing some headaches - most recently in the two days preceding this bleeding. Over the past month, I've also experienced stiffness in my upper back between my shoulder blades, but have attributed that to yard work. :)
I'll check back in - in the meantime,  going to change up my diet to be sure I'm eating clean, non-GERD-irritating foods. I'm going to start using my water pic again, and swish daily with coconut oil.  Going to take my vitamin supplements - which I've not been doing - to help with any deficiency.
I wish you all health. I hope we all find, as I did years back, that this is an annoying but innocuous symptom.

I have actually noticed the same thing with soda and with ice cream as well. When I mention it to people they look at me like I am crazy, but every time I drink a whole soda or eat a bowl of ice cream (which I do not do anymore!) I get a bad sore throat and sinus infection symptoms with out a runny nose. It lasts about a week and It's HORRIBLE, and as soon as I connected the dots I cut those things from my diet.

I have experienced the spitting up blood thing on and off for over 10 years! And I'm only 27... it's been getting worse and because I feel a pressure in my sinuses/throat I worry that it could be a tumor or other growth in there. I also have ibs, gerd, hiatal hernia, and gluten intolerance (plus other food intolerances I am trying to pin down). It's scary because I don't know if there is something deeper going on, or if I am just one of those people that are overly sensitive to everything. I went to the ER today because my primary wanted me to get scanned ASAP, and of course he didn't order any scans and is just sending me to an ENT. He did at least tell me that due to the nature of the blood it was most likely not related to my GERD, especially since I didn't have any GERD symptoms during the bleeding episode. I did have a thick dark blood clot come up which really freaked me out.

I'd love to hear how your diet works for you. Sometimes I wonder if that's what I need to focus on. I mean, I eat really well but sometimes I think it's not enough (I feel like I am cheating if I eat cheese for crying out loud!). Anyway, good luck!

Hi I'm 46 y.o. female, occasional smoker. Had this blood spitting mornings once in a while. Gerd treated with 90 days of Omeprazole. Stopped the medication as I felt I'm healed, however new symptom developed I am suffering from watery eyes which I think is also part of my chronic sinus problems.I didn't have blood in my spit in the morning for a month and now it's back. I feel that it's more of sinusitis and been through a lot of stress lately. Hope we all feel well soon. Please let me know how you feel ..I wonder why am I the one suggesting the diagnostic aids to my doctor when in fact I come to the doctor for answers, I went home from the clinic with more uncertainties than before.I just believe that our body has its own healing mechanism ,so I will just think positive about things, believe me I did this for  a month trying to be stressed-free and worry free and I was not spitting blood in the morning for a month until I got stressed couple of night ago, and I think it was also dry mouth and increase humidity that causes all these trouble, I try to feel where it's coming from and I  can tell it's from the roof of my mouth,and for the first time in my entire life I experienced a nose bleed, I thought it was just a mucus coming out of my left nostril , so when I wipe it it was blood.

Hi all,

A lot of these comments resonated with me, so I thought I would share my story and experiences as well.  As a disclaimer, I still don't know what is causing me to spit up blood at times.

About 3-4 years ago, I noticed some enlarged cervical lymph nodes.  I didn't pay much attention to them, but after a year passed, they seemed to have gotten larger.  I went to an ENT, he felt me up all over my neck, under jaw, shoulder line.  He said those two we could feel were nothing to worry about.  A year passed, and they seemed to be getting larger.  I also felt new ones under my chin.  I'm also tasting what is like blood, but whenever I spit, I see nothing.  I see a few more ENT's, had an ultrasound, endoscope, an excisional biopsy, and came out ok.  The ENT surgeon who did the biopsy said I should be monitored every 6 months just in case the lymph nodes grow again.

Prior to my 6 month follow up, I thought every thing felt fine.  Then, one day, after eating sour dough bread, I felt the taste of metallic blood.  So, I go to the sink and spit.  Lo and behold, streaks and flecks of bright red blood.  I spit several more times, rinse, and look around.  I spit clear again.  But, throughout the day, I randomly spit up bright flecks of blood.  This goes on for a few more days.  I decide it could be related to my acid reflux.  I've had GERD for the past several years. So, I change my sleeping position and start sleeping in a sitting position.  After a few days of this, my spit becomes clear, although I still taste blood like I had been tasting for about several months at that point.  I see my ENT for the follow up, and I mention all of this.  He doesn't think anything of it.  He proceeds to check my lymph nodes, and everything seems fine.  The same enlarged ones are still there.  They haven't grown or become fixed.

As a month passes, I end up finding a new enlarged lymph node.  It grew right next to another larger lymph node.  I estimate it's probably 0.5 cm.  I also find a really small one along my jaw line underneath my ear lobe.  I am not sure if these enlarged lymph nodes are related to the blood spitting or GERD.  But, I feel it's important to mention because I worry if I might have some orapharyngeal cancer.  So, I often check the oral cancer forums for these symptoms.  Anyways, after a month passes, I eat some toasted sour dough sandwich, and again, I start spitting up blood.  It goes on a few more days, and in that time, I schedule an appt with my ENT surgeon's associate (since he was available quickly).  

I see the new ENT and tell him about all of what is going on.  The blood in the spit, unfortunately, is gone at this point.  So, he looks around, pokes down my throat with the finger to check for base of tongue tumors, endoscopes me in two different nostrils, and feels my lymph nodes.  I tell him about the new ones.  He said that he doesn't see anything with the scope, and the lymph nodes, although palpable, are nothing to worry about.  He wants me to do a chest X-ray, but I've already had three clear ones in the past year for TB testing, and feel a fourth one would be over kill.

Anyways, that was a few months ago.  I've given up alcohol, and recently coffee as well since I need to control my GERD.  But, this past week, I'm spitting up blood again.  It started with eating toasted sour dough, but it seems that now eating anything rough will cause some bleeding: pizza, chips, etc...  I have tried the sucking thing someone else mentioned earlier in this thread and that actually made things bleed when I was spitting up blood.  I'm trying to figure out, though, if that is causing my gums to bleed--I have pockets of gums that bleed easily when I floss.  

Finally, I also posted about this on the oral cancer forums.  Some posters chimed in and said that although bleeding can happen with orapharyngeal cancers, it's really not a common symptom.  And, I think they may be right.  Most of the posts I've seen never described bleeding as a symptom.  Although, I've read about a few cases in which there was bleeding from some tumor.  Another guy chimed in and said he's been spitting up blood for over 10 years, and he's been cancer free the whole time.  None of his doctors are able to figure out why he's bleeding and where it's coming from.  I think it could be that the radiation therapy he received in that area weakened a lot of his capillaries so he tends to bleed in the orapharynx.  But, who really knows.  I'll keep updating this thread as I go through this medical journey.

For people who are having the sensation of blood taste without seeing blood, you should try luminol.  It's available on Amazon.  It will detect the smallest trace amounts of blood.  It's pretty amazing stuff.  You can mix small quantities of it as well, and use it multiple times.  The reason this is important is because if you see your doctor, you will need to let them know if there is blood in the spit even though you can't see it.  I told my doctor about this, and it prompted him to finally do further, extensive testing.  They did a PET-CT scan which showed some active areas.  He did biopsies at the base of my tongue.  Even though they didn't see a tumor, I have cancer.  The cancer was slowly bleeding all the time, and it was so slight you couldn't see it in the spit.  But, sometimes, it would bleed quite a bit, and you could definitely see that.

So, just be wary.  Spitting up blood is not normal.  If it's bright red, it's probably coming from the oral cavity, orapharynx, or larynx.  If it gets darker red, it's probably from the throat or lungs.  I read from one person who had vocal cord cancer that his bleeding started bright red, but it eventually got to a dark red color.  Go to the dentist and rule out gingivitis or other gum problems as a source of the bleeding.  I did, and that made me really wonder where the bleeding was coming from.

Hi All; I have been noticing blood in my saliva every morning when I get up and split after washing face. If happens when I bend to wash my face. If I do not bend, I do not see red blood in my saliva. But it happens only once in morning, not after that. This is happening for almost 8 to 10 months now. Have'nt seen a Doctor yet.

Is the blood light red, bright or dark? Can you reproduce the spitting of blood later on the day, if you first move a lot of blood to your head like for example going to a position for a moment where your head is lower than your chest?

Also for anyone else, I would be interested if you can reproduce it with bringing lot of blood to head prior spitting. My case feels a bit similar to mimodcoplus's case in this thread. = bring blood to head -> pink saliva. Extreme pressure -> breaks vein (possible in my case also).

My case is that a year, two or three ago I noticed light red color in my spit when I was showering, and once more when I had gone out and spitted outdoors. I didn't think much of it and it didnt come back until now. Yesterday evening I had it in my spit in the shower for a couple of minutes. Now today morning the saliva was normal, until I decided to do a hand stand and test spitting after that. There it is, light red saliva. I had done hand stand before the shower the day before also. Then later today at outdoors I spitted a lot and paid attention to it but it was white until after walking some time I had a surge of blood going to my head. Maybe that was because I had been stationary for long and started walking. After this the spit was very light red for couple of spits.

My throat area down to upper lungs area feels little tingly now, but I have that occasionally so it is nothing alarming in itself to me. The tingliness have become irritating a few times in past 4-5 years when the weather outside is turning to plus degrees and the snow starts to melt, so sometimes in autumn and more often in spring. Well it just happens that right now the weather is like that and the snow is melting. It has been plus degrees for the last couple of days after weeks of below zero and a snow cover.

I am suspecting that the house I live in is not treating the melting of the snow in its structures properly and the pollutants or mold spores that are perhaps showing up in the air are polluting my pharynx/esophagus areas. Or perhaps when the snow melts my pharynx/esophagus areas are irritated regardless this apartment.  One thing this could indicate is a "noninfectious pharyngitis".

Other things that I did yesterday that might have initiated it now again includes excessive exerting due to having had an intense gym workout earlier yesterday. Also I have recently been trying to avoid gluten, eating gluten free products for couple of months. Yesterday some hours before spitting pink, I ate some cookies at friends place. I rarely eat those. Just mentioning this as someone mentioned having had the blood spitting occur after eating sour dough breads.

I am observing where this goes and in the mean time I am trying to find natural remedies/treatment for irritated or inflamed pharynx/esophagus.

I also have same problem. i am 29 y / M recently been experiencing the taste of blood in my mouth.  When I spit out, I am seeing traces of blood.  I had chest x-rays that came out clear.  I saw an ear nose throat doctor who checked my nose and throat and saw nothing except excess mucous.  He prescribed a nasal spray for me.  I have been using it for about two weeks now, and am still seeing and tasting the blood.  I am also experiencing some pressure in my throat.  Any suggestions on who to see or what could be going on?
