Hi, ive been spitting out small streaks of rusty colored sputum for about 5 months which seems to go away when i use my steroid asthma inhaler. I started smoking a year ago only having 1 to 2 a day, 6 months ago i increased to 3 to4 and that seems to be when this started, i also get a pain in the center of my chest when there is a bit more blood. For a while i thought it was tar or something from the cigarettes?? i bought an e cig a month ago and this made the problem worse. I gave up smoking a week ago and now the sputum is clear and no chest pains. Im awaiting the results from a chest xray. The strange thing is ive never had a cough??? what do you thing is going on and should i get a refferal to a specialist? thankyou
