coughing up blood

Two years ago I was admitted to the hospital to the hospital for coughing up blood . Being that my mother had TB. I told them I would come up positive every time I had the test . Prior to being admitted I had a significant  amount of blood I was given IVs and started treatment for TB Now again I was at work and started coughing up blood . They took X-rays and blood after about six hours later I was told that their was nothing wrong with me and the cause of my bleeding was due to to much coughing when I had not cough prior to this time . Right now I have not being able to go outside because its a little bit cold . I went outside for about ten minutes when I went inside I started to cough one time and sure enough it was blood . What to do ? E mail is ***@**** for any suggestions .

Hope you are getting some help on email.... nothing happening here so far.

The only suggestion I have is make sure you have good humidity inside, maybe put a vaporizer near you when you are not moving about - sleep with one for sure.  Then what, cover you face with a scarf when you must expose yourself to cold dry air, and try to limit the time.

Where does the blood come form, is it dried or liquid blood?  Is it from your throat or lungs? You needn't answer my questions, as that will not result in me providing any additional help.

The blood is in liquid form bright red and in lump form with tiny red dots . The blood comes from the lung just as if it was phlegm but is blood . Another thing is I usually get tired to fast at times and I tend to sleep more often .

The nasal and sinus areas have rather thin membranes (I am not a medical person) as I understand it and thus a nose bleed is not usually anything serious.  I think it is also possible for nasal sinus blood to be swallowed or to at least progress back into the throat - thus could be coughed up.  

I am not arguing where the blood comes from just suggestion areas that I hope were checked by a doctor.  I have not simple, it will go away, notion about blood being coughed up from the lungs, sounds serious to me.

The fact you can sleep is good, I think.
