I have had the waking up coughing, but not as bad as lately.

The past, I'd say 5 days. I've been waking up coughing. It gets worse each morning. One day, I actually coughed until I throw up. I do think I threw up some blood. There was red stuff in it and I didn't eat anything red, or drank anything red. Now, I noticed in my back and chest. My lungs have been hurting. When I breathe, talk, or cough. I get this horrible intense pains in my lung area. Those areas hurt all the time, but it just gets more intense when I do those things.

Yes, I am a smoker. I'm almost 18 years old.

advice, help, answers?

This can lead to all sorts of complications & without treatment it could be life threating. Hope u feel better soon, :)
