If you're a chronic cougher- could be the cause. Smoker? Go to the doctor- blood coming from any cavity isn't good at all.

I concur with Phoenix, go to the doctor.
“Through me you pass into the city of woe:
Through me you pass into eternal pain:
Through me among the people lost for aye.
Justice the founder of my fabric moved:
To rear me was the task of Power divine,
Supremest Wisdom, and primeval Love.
Before me things create were none, save things
Eternal, and eternal I endure.
Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.”

Just go to the doctor, coughing up blood isn't normal.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

is the blood more on the pinkish side of red? because sometimes when you cough hard/chronically you'll break little capillary's in your lungs,not really a big deal...

Re: sometimes i cough up spots of blood.....
Hi Double Frick,

Don't you worry about a thing. I read your previous post that you only smoke cannabis, if this is correct, then please read the article below. I think you are mistakening the "blood" for black phlegm spots.

The main thing going on here is the difference between bronchial dilators and constrictors. Tobacco is a bronchial constrictor whereas Cannabis is a bronchial dilator; this means smoking tobacco will tighten and close the pathways in your lungs where Cannabis will open them up. Nicotine constricts terminal bronchioles in lungs, which keeps tars trapped in the tissue. Its there these chemicals do their worst. THC and the chemicals associated with MJ are dilators. This allows the particulate matter (black mucus) etc., to be expelled, thereby eliminating their effects "on contact" with lung tissue. Anytime you smoke you’re going to have a presence of mucus.

For me MJ has a slight allergic reaction just like my everyday allergies. However it is this very bodily reaction that protects us from long term contacts with allergens, by allowing "matter" to be trapped and expelled. So, the "Black Phlegm" is a good thing.



post note:
(1) THC is a bronchial dilator, which means it works like a cough drop by opening up your lungs and therefore aiding in the clearance of smoke and dirt. Nicotine has the exact opposite effect. (5) Unlike the chemicals in marijuana, nicotine has a paralyzing effect on the tiny hairs along the body's air passages. These hairs normally work to keep foreign matter out of the lungs. This means that carcinogenic tar from cigarette smoke is relatively much harder to purge from your lungs than is that from marijuana.

Yes.

Was initially diagnosed as pneumonia.... that wasn't the case. A year or so later it was too late.

This individual was a smoker but also worked alongside various chemicals (industrial bleaching agents) for many years.

do you smoke crack..this will cause you to spit up blood..Im not being funny either..Its true..Smoking crack or inhailing certain drugs or chemicals can cause this..If thats not the problem it could be that you are coughing so much that it is causing the vesels in your throat to be erritated which can also cause a little blood..Does not mean its anything serrious..With that said if its alot of blood it could be something serrious.Have you been sick with a cold..If so this could be phnemonia or bronchitis.. If its none of the above you should really see a doctor..

I remember this actually happened to one of the contestants in one of the final episodes of The Aprentice and they had to wait for her diagnosis and she turned out to be OK - was some tear in the upper resp track or something. But you may not be as lucky - maybe you can request to be a volunteer patient at a med school?

Re: sometimes i cough up spots of blood.....
DF: honest opinion, save your buckeroos and see a doc. There are normally urgent care clinics that are a bit cheaper than full-fledged docs, and do see patients on a walk-in basis.

imo? TB.
County Health Department (whatever county you live in).
[link to www.co.fresno.ca.us]

Why? It's a community health risk, if you do have it. if you don't, it's less worrisome. If you have it, you could spread it to others, so even if you're dead broke, your county (whichever county you live in, in Cali), _will_ want you treated if you have it. Don't worry about the costs, because the County Health Dept probably won't charge you to clear you of it (especially if you're in a lower income bracket, though I could be wrong).
