Ok. I am 17 years old, don't smoke or anything. Last Thursday I got a sore throat and throughout the past week I have been hacking up phlegm throughout the day. My sore throat feels better and it really isnt sore anymore, but In the morning when I wake up I feel all stuffed up and my head feels bloated.. and spit out some phelgm from my throat (nothing out of the nose)
Anyway, just tonight I hacked up some phelgm, spit it out and to my shock and very scared self I see streaks of blood in my phelgm.
I've spit up phelgm a couple more times tonight and there was spots of blood.
Could this just be from hacking constinatley and annoying the throat? Can it be more serious, and should I be really worried?
Please respond if you know anything because I'm very worried
