So, i was diagnosed with bronchiectasis about 2 and a half years ago. I am a 20 year old male, never really had any exacerbation or daily symptoms of bronchiectasis ( i also have asthma and it is well controlled, i don't really take any medication for it as i don't really have flare ups). On april 15th i had my first shot of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for COVID-19. I never had the disease ( not that i know of, i have not been sick for almost two years now ). After six days of taking the shot i woke up with blood tinged sputum in the morning, i got really scared and i started forcing myself to cough( i don't really cough as i don't have too much sputum, and if i have it is usually brought up without coughing ), after coughing more and drinking a hot cup of tea, i brought up more, but way less than a tablespoon, just small drops of blood. I thought it was from a nose bleed, as i have allergic rhinitis too and i take a nasal corticosteroid spray in the spring as my allergies get annoying( and there was blood coming from my nose too, it happens often with this corticosteroid). It hasn't happened for some time and i started to really feel ok, no more anxiety, until two days ago when i brought up some mucus that had some blood in it, only once. Other than that i have not spat out any more blood tinged sputum and i don't have any other symptoms, i am fairly active( not as before now with the pandemic, but still fairly active), non smoker ( i live with people that smoke, so i inhale it sometimes), normal BMI, not had an infection in a pretty long time. I spat blood in the past, last time when i was sick but it was from the bronchitis i had, all my friends were sick and i caught it too. It went away with a 7 day course of cefuroxime. Now i am a bit puzzled and a bit afraid as tomorrow i have the second shot of the vaccine. Could it be something i should worry about? I don't have any other symptoms.
