7/12/07 out of the blue I started spitting/coughing up blood (very red). I have not been sick (maybe stressed). By late that night my breathing became labored. By then I had spit up A LOT of blood. I was too hard headed to go to hospital (have had extremely bad experiences). Next day blood subsided but I started a low grade fever (which has continued today). I actually feel the worst today - but no blood as of yet. I will go to MD monday but was wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Thanks ya'll (yes I from Texas) for any input!!!

  • Are you joking? I would go straight to the hospital if I was coughing up a lot of blood. I'd also ask for a TB test (it's a simple skin test to see if you have tuberculosis). I assume you have been to a qualified medical doctor/clinic by now. If not, definitely go right away.
