yeah, it's probably nothing, but ring up NHS DIRECT and they will sort you out. 0845 46 47 (yes that is the full number!)

i coughed up blood once and the doctor said i just had a throat infection, nothing serious. so don't get worried.

Probably nothing. How much blood, how fresh?

Do you get a lot of blood-soaked bogies?

Dry air seems to cause it. Here on the windswept prairies, many people unknowingly walk around with a raging sinus infection at all times. Those that also work in air-conditioned environments suffer the worst, bloody boogie-wise. As your climate is considerably more humid than mine, I'd ask if you work somewhere air-conditioned?

air conditioning is the worse thing for guys with easily fucked up sinuses like me.total nausea.
