I have asthma and allergic to animals, specifically cats. I have a cat. lol
I take Singulair but due to my temporarily bad financial situation I ran out and didn't get my prescription refilled. 1-3 days after I quit my breathing difficulties began again and my inhaler would help.
This is typical of 2 and 3 years ago when I stopped taking my Singulair and the change in season hit, kinda like right now, and I got a chest cold and was given anti-biotics and resumed my Singulair.
In 2000 the same thing happened in early October.
My chest situation cleared up and I hardly ever hit my inhaler. My breathing difficulty increased with my weight as well.
But to answer your exact question I was sitting at my PC and I got this intense taste of blood in my mouth on the tip of my tongue under my gums. I stuck my tongue out and there was blood. I walked into the bathroom spit in the sink and there was blood. Over the next 5-10 minutes the blood greatly diminished as if I had a cut in my gum that healed up.
I never coughed any blood up nor even coughed period. 5 minutes later I am driving and I coughed up some phlegm and it was very clear.
I did chew up 3 magnesium tablets and I wonder if the granules (that stay in your mouth forever)
The blood tests came back good and the cat scan as well.
He thinks possibly pneumonia but I think the blood was from my mouth.
I looked up symptoms of leukemia and based on the blood tests from 8-16-06 and lastnight I feel the Docs would have said something and I my WBC is actually very normal.
