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.
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.
My papa is 44 yrs old. and woke up with alot of blood on his pillow. and dried blood on his cheek and in his ear (not in the tunnel). He went to the dentist on Wednesday but it is Friday morning and i am not so sure where the blood came from. but if it from ear or the mouth should I make him go to the doctors?
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.

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.
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.
my tongue has a dry blood stripe down centre of tongue every morning for last 12mths,, had camera in nose and down throat but nothing found,,doctor say its mucus gathered in nite.. worried no one knows what it is
I went to my doctor. I said, I woke up this morning with some streaks of blood in my sputum. I had a cold 4 weeks ago and cleared 95% of the symptoms within 5 days but the yellow/clear sputum is there each morning. First thing she asked was, Do i sleep with my mouth open? Yes, because I have a slight overbite my mouth stays open and I tend to breathe through my mouth rather than my nose. This then causes the nasal cavities and back of the throat to dry out, and when you have had a cold, alot of those cavities are recovering from being inflammed and this causes some blood in the sputum. It only occurs on the first spit in the morning, some days it's not even there. The only long term way to solve the issue is to see a dentist and they may be able to rectify an overbite issue depending on severity. For those worrying about lung cancer etc, quit smoking and get a chest xray to rule out any cause for concern.
