--Stupid Question-- Why am I coughing up blood?

So I have a...cold? I'm guessing, I actually have NO idea, but I have some SEVERE sinus pressure and bleeding, I keep draining blood into my mouth, it trickles down my throat into my stomach, and then I end up puking blood..My Doctors office isn't open, and I have a hospital phobia >.<

What should I do?

  • Do you have insurance? Most insurance companies have a 24 hour nurse hotline you can call. This sounds serious...

  • Um I'd go to the hospital phobia or not. If you are coughing up blood it could mean nothing more than sinus drainage or it could mean a GI bleed which is VERY dangerous.
