I have not been coughing it up, but since January, I have been having bloody phlegm. Sometimes it just appears in my mouth-- other times, I need to clear my throat.
I went to the doctor for it a month ago, but she said it was probably an infection and gave me medicine. The blood (not the phlegm) went away for less than a week-- then it came back.
I also have a sore throat that is worse every time I wake up.
I know I have GERD (but I have no insurance right now, so I'm not taking medicine for it)-- is it possible that the acid is causing my throat to bleed and my body is producing sputum as a defense?
