spitting up blood in morning after brushing teeth

The past two mornings, while brushing my tongue, I gagged myself and streaks of blood were evident in my spit. I am going to go to the doctors but in the meantime I am a nervous wreck. I do suffer from severe heartburn and I am not being treated for it. I am wondering if this might have something to do with the blood in my spit?

Re: spitting up blood in morning after brushing teeth

My guess is that your gums are bleeding (maybe in the back where you can't necessarily see it) and when you spit that's where the blood comes from. Try not to freak out too much, if that's what it is it is fixable and not that big a deal.
