  • A visit to the doctor if not the ER. Seriously, call your doctor and follow any and all instructions.

  • Pneumonia...if the blood is bright red it is nothing too serious to worry about.
    That's from coughing.
    If it gets darker that is from internal bleeding (*could be in the upper GI)...than go straight to the E.R.
    Good Luck!

  • I know how it feels ... I didn't have insurance either, but is an insurance bill worth your life? Not at all. Please, coughing up blood is never ok, please, please, pleas go to the hospital!!!
