Sounds like Pleurisy. Blood is normally a sign of an injured area. Injured areas can commonly be the result of infection. Infection can cause Pleurisy.
How often do you spit up blood? Is it just after exertion, or can it happen at any time?
I do notice some heart pain from time to time and I just don't have the energy and I do have shortness of breath when I climb stairs.
How frequently, if at all, do you feel a fast heart beat, or skipped heart beats, or erratic heart beats. Do you have any problems breathing in a prone position (lying down).
I am thinking I need to check my heart, echo-gram? BP is somewhat elevated, but it has always run about 150 / 92....
That is not a healthy blood pressure, especially if it averages about 150/92, with readings frequently both higher and lower than that. Constantly high blood pressure can slowly weaken/enlarge the heart, over time.
My opinion is based on my own personal experience, as I have no medical training or education. Just some things for you to consider......
