Coughed up blood this morning - Ask me a question!!
It was more like a big dark blood clot when I was brushing my teeth, about a 1/4 inch wide by 2-3". Best I could tell about it before it went down the sink. I'm on the fence about it. Part of me is happy because I've known for a few years despite the constant insistence of those around me who think I'm fine when I have a good day and can get out and do stuff. Would have hated to find out nothing was wrong and I'd just become lazy over the years.

Na, leaning more towards Meso. I used to restore old houses in historic districts with a small crew. I've seen it's effects as a buddy of mine died a few years back from it, along with his dad and mom is about to go too. Dad was a boilermaker and brought it home for the fam on his work clothes.

Na, not flu I don't think.

And you sound like everyone else who says I've just been lazy. I used to bike like 15-20 miles to work and back every night during a rough patch. I've never been lazy in my life. The last part of my working life, I worked turn key construction 6 days a week. I have to say, everytime someone says that it's very hurtful. =(

I was only winding you up op.

Maybe you have chronic fatigue or low on Iron or something - but the one blood spit I wouldnt be too worried about. Has happened to me once In the past too - was some throut thing and fixed Itself.

Apparently If It Is something bad It Is quite excessive spitting up blood and a lot of coughing ect.

I know! I take everything with stride now anyways I'm always getting subtle jabs from friends/family about it. At this point, like I said in the OP it's kind of a relief. It's like seeing bigfoot out your back window every morning and then someone comes along and proves it exists. You don't instantly think that it's dangerous, you are just relieved you're not crazy! lol

I'm pretty certain it's not just a random thing and related to everything else. I've had a cough for years, and all day I've felt really hung over even though I haven't touched a drink at all in months.

Actually, I've been calmer than a cucumber for the past few weeks which given the state of things I kinda chuckled to myself and said "I guess it's my body's way of telling me I'm not going to make it to the doom!" lol Even now I'm indifferent. This whole year I've been watching all the breaking news threads on the edge of my chair. Now though, it's just been a passing fancy. It was always secondary in the back of my mind that my prep was not only for me, but the things I acquire will help the family out if they end up getting passed down.

I'll keep that in mind, but this is actually a calm point in my life relative to my younger years. I made it though all that with my hair and sanity barely in tact, but still all one piece nonetheless. Right now, other than the slightly worrisome conditions I'm more at peace now than I have ever been.

I've removed all stress I possibly can from my life which included moving to a new state. You'll just have to trust me that it's physical and not mental.

Nope. I felt it come up and tasted the iron in the back of my throat. Oddly enough even though it was the first time it has happened it had a familiar feeling to it.

You felt a lung cookie come up, while you were brushing your teeth?
Of course it could be blood colored, you couldn't know if it was blood from your gums or your lungs.

Assuming its not from your teeth, it could be a Clot, which case you need to go to hospital, Lung Cancer in which case you need to go to hospital, burst blood vessel from coughing too much...you dont need to go to hospital for that one.

My gums don't have the habit of bleeding though.. ever. I do however hack up normal crap when I first wake up. I was in a rush so I was having my coughing fit and brushing my teeth at the same time. It could have possibly come from my sinus cavity I will concede that. I just don't like the fact that I feel like I drank a whole bottle of JD's the night before. You know those mornings after where it feels like someone used your liver for a punching bag? That's what it felt like. I took a good long 5 hour nap and it helped a bit though. If I start to turn jaundice colors I'll post a new thread about it.. lol

Yeh, last time I went to doctors and hospitals I got the run around. 1 GP, 2 specialist, and a few ER visits and they gave me their "cure all" round of the latest antibiotic because we all know when in doubt, prescribe that to reassure the patient they know wtf they're doing. Of course my symptoms at the time didn't have anything to do with infection - no fever, sleeping continuously for 15-18 hours, and the ER was from twice passing out getting out of bed and finding the nice night stand.. =P

So that's already 3-4 grand in the hole for lackluster diagnosis and 0 differential.

I got really tired of the way they all shuffled me off. I worked hard and lived/dressed very frugally. I used to keep a safety net of 10k in the bank at all times yet that was trumped by not having insurance and the appearance it created. It was a lot like how I was treated the same every time I'd go to buy high dollar items with that much in the bank yet they'd flat out deny me the right to write a check for anything because I was young at the time.

Yes but they just could one time for no reason, what im saying is because you were brushing your teeth there is no way to know if it was from the lungs or gums.
