Hi, this morning I got scared cause after I dressed up I felt some taste of blood in my mouth, I spit a little and I noticed some blood so I grabbed some toilet paper, cleaned my throat and spitted again in the paper and there was quite some blood mixed with the mucus and I also noticed my throat had still some bloody mucus left :?
I think it might've been from my nose, maybe I had a nosebleed during the night but i'm not sure, there was only very few blood on my right nostril... I'm feeling a bit better now thinking that it was really from the nose and it runned down to my throat but i'm still afraid that this might be something worse..
I'm only 20, I don't smoke nor drink and I exercise sometimes but I don't drink a lot of water and my throat feels dry a lot of times, I also used to bleed from my nose when I was younger specially during summer season but now my nosebleeds are rare -- thankfully --
i'm still feeling scared cause this never happened before.. So any help is really appreciated.

Make sure you drink a lot of water. Blood in mucus can show infection of sinus/nose-however without posed inflammtion of the area and wellbeing it doesn't sound like thats the cause. Your nose bleed history and dryness. I would say make sure you drink plenty.


Get saline spray with no preservatives use that and see if anything improves and drink plenty of water. For dryness of mouth I would even recommend some mixture of half gatorade and half water mixture. You need electrolyte replacement as always with drinking plenty of water. However half a glass of gatorade since so sugary should be fine for you. See if that makes a difference. But drink!! You need that to coat your mucus membranes to not allow them to bleed.


Good rule of thumb drink 4 oz of water half a glass, every hour you are awake- that will suffice your intake, unless you take medication then you need more.

If you resume nosebleed ever regularly, you shoudl see a doctor as this could be a sign of something else. Also living in a newly remodeled home and new carpeting will cause this as well as other things.

About Your Nose Bleeds...
Hi I just wanted to say that when I was ten I had alot of nosebleeds cause the climate was to dry.I moved to a different province and the nose bleeds stopped.So it could be from dryness. Also if you think its from your throat I would go get it checked out.I was bleeding from the throat and I had the start of pneumonia. Take care..

Thanks both of you for your replies, it didn't happen again and yes the weather probably has something to do with too, it's very hot were I live and sometimes I get the feeling of dryness all over my nostrils and mouth just by breathing air. I'll drink more water as you advised me and try the other stuff, thx.

Blood spots in the mucus
Some times it so happened that i find some very little blood spots with my mucus. I had a very bad cold recently and the doctor had advicesd to take some antibiotics. After 2 days of medication this blood problem started. I'm scared to clear my throat. This is hapenning although reduces for the last 4 days. Doctors says nothing serious, bleeding because of cough. Usually during the year i find dark black spots in my mucus, looks like pollution.Please advice.

BLEEDING from my THROAT
I awakend with a sore throat feeling, after cleaning the rear of my tongue and spiittng out the usual early morning muscus I felt as if there was some more coming up so I proceeded to force-cough / suction it out. I thought it was working. I had whatever it was almost in my mouth until I felt like there was a string holding it down, preventing it from coming completely up, I started to choke, I let it go and spat. Thats when I saw a whole lot of thick mucussy-blood. What in the world could be the cause. I'm a 52 yrs old male on Daonil and 40 mg Vasotec. Can anyone advise me

I have had this problem for many years and finally I checked on the web after 3 ents and allergists, etc I started drinking gatorade and using breezers throat lozenges and using a humidifier in work my bleeding has stopped so far for 3 days and I am in my glory. I use to get this mucous blood it seemed like wads of it then nothing all day until I came from work, seemed as soon as I got up in the morn until I came home from work. I am going to keep with the gatorade which I dilute with water because of the sugar and see what happens NO Doctor that I have been too and there have been many could tell me what the problem was but I am going to try this I get it summer and winter so I cannot blame the weather.

Hey Guys,
A lot of the cases I've read, are very similar to mine, the first one at the top especially, I also get nosebleeds during winter and summer, and it is usually after I have them, or during, that I get blood mucus come out of my throat. This has been happening since I was 9 and now I am 20. I have never inquired about the blood coming from my throat. But I think I will now.

I am having the same problem of bloody mucus in my throat. This has been going on for around 2 years. My throat gets sore then bleeds, or it comes from my sinus. My ENT doc said it was from allergies. I hope that he is right. I just got around to seeing him lately, my gp sent me to a GI doc first saying it was probably my stomach, I had a endoscopy that show gastritis, but my GI doctor said that I would vomit, if the blood was coming from my stomach. I don't cough it up, but do as another poster. It just comes up into my throat and I clear my throat and spit, and its there. At first I went to the ER, and he assumed me that I could lose much more blood than what I was ,, still it scared me and when there is a lot of it, it still does, thanks

Bleeding throat
Two months ago I was admitted to three different hospitals due to excessive bleeding from the throat. I was diagnosed with pneumonia but my sputum test revealed no bacteria just traces of fungus which is quite normal. I had ct scan, bronchoscopy, ultra sound, series of xrays but all these came out normal. They could not figure out what was wrong with me and I was discharged coz the bleeding stopped maybe due to some meds I took. After a week of being discharged I visited an ENT who did an endoscopy. He said I have varicose in my throat and this might have caused the bleeding. He prescribed 1 g vit. C everyday and I did not bleed for 2 months. But I'm again bleeding now. It's really frustrating. Hope someone could help me. What do you do with varicose in the throat?
