Hello.

Over the past few months I have had some blood in my spital first thing in the morning thought it was from my teeth but isn't. Over the past week I have had some acid coming up my throat and the last day or 2 have been spitting blood up, not much just a we drop first thing in the morning, have been taking anti-acids for past week or so too. Have taste of blood in my mouth at times and also feel my burning sensation in chest at times. Have tingling tongue and dry mouth/throat when sleeping.

Should I worry about this????????

Been to doctors and he seems to think it is some kind of bacterial infection and the blood was from a burst blood vessel in my throat area.

Put me on anti-biotics for a week.....

So we will soon see.

Blood Forming In the Mouth
For 2 years my husband has experienced blood in his mouth early morning. It rarely occurs during the day. He has had numerous tests, some several times such as: bronscoscopy, egd, colonoscopy, visits to ent's, cat scan of the chest. No one has been able to find where the blood is coming from. He does take coumadin plus several other meds.

He has the taste of blood in his mouth all the time and now his tongue burns and he has some blisters on the tongue. His breath is just awful. The taste of blood goes away after eating but within a few minutes returns.

He has seen his primary doctor, pulmologist, gastroenterologist, dentist, ent and cardiologist.

Any ideas of where to go next next would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same symptoms
Hey guys

I suffer the same thing!

blood from my throat through the night and morning!

i have doctors looking into it atm -

I put it down to a number of things!

1: ulcer in stomach!
2: SMOKE??????
3: medications such as Anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen

all of these are serious - Bleeding through the night and always tasting it is a serious matter - its a shame no one seems to understand when you tell them!

i have had tests, baring meals - x- rays and im stumped -

i suggest anyone who smokes to quit and live a healthy life style - even stress and ruin your body!

Bleeding from my mouth when I sleep!
I bleed every night and wake up every morning witha mouth print (how sick) of blood!!! I am 43. I think it is because I have sleep apnea, and I do not treat it! Am I right??? My doctor has no idea why. I wish there was someone who knew why. I am 30 pounds overweight! Maybe drop the stupid 30 pounds and the bleeding will stop??? Anybody?

hi i have the same problem, i am currently researching scurvy, it is caused by a lack of vitamin c in one's diet. Vitamin C is widespread in plant tissues, with particularly high concentrations occurring in citrus fruits (oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruits), tomatoes, potatoes, cabbages, and green peppers. scurvy is treated with vitamin c,Consumption of dietary supplements and/or citrus fruits are means by which to accomplish this.

Blood in mouth in the morning
Bleeding which shows itself as blood in the mouth in the morning /after sleep may be due to several reasons -so it is important to consider the cause by looking at what may be the reason.
If the person has a thick long sticky shaped piece of cattarah at the same time as the bleeding , it is most likely that they have a bronchial problem and the bleeding is caused by inflamation brought on by a burst blood vessel.
Ice in drinks can cause burst blood vessels particulary after drinking a hot drink too soon either before or after the ice drink.
There are times when the presence of blood in the mouth in the morning may be caused by a slight downflow of blood from an irrated upper nasal cavity...excessive sneezing is both a sign and a causation of this condition.
Small foreign objects can be a cause also but this usually causes an infection marked by green coloured cattarah being coughed up prior to the blood appearing a day or so later.
The major reason for blood in a persons mouth in the morning is mostly because of gums bleeding and dental related problems ; it is therefor important to have these issues discounted first.
Determining the cause is a difficult problem for GPs since there are so many reasons , the vast majority of which are irritating but none the less not dangerous .
If the blood shows itself to be increasing and more scarlet in colour and it is not caused by any of the things discussed above , it is important that you contact a doctor and ask for a referral to a E.N.T. (ears nose and throat) specialist to discount aything more serious.

Treatment for blood coming out from mouth...
I have the same problem, blood coming out in the morning, blood taste in the mouth etc. In Indian system of medicine, it has been diagnosed as excessive heat in the body. Blood typically comes out due to burst capillaries in the throat, not from stomach. One of the key root causes for this is stress and improper diet. One very effective and simple method of relief that I have been using is to apply the Gingerly oil on the head for 30 min on the center of the head with fast and pressing strokes. Go to sleep after that and then next day take bath with lukewarm water. This tends to take away lot of heat and help the treatment.

Having said that, blood might also come probably due to ulcer so it is important to see the doctor and get relevant tests done to rule out any other complications.
