Spitting blood from last 9 months. Don't know where it is coming from.

Posted , 2 users are following.

Let me share some background details first. 

I had a car accident 11-12 months ago. I was on bike and car hit me from back. My head hit with something and started bleeding. I had 6 stitches in head that time. After that consulted with neurosurgeon and he suggested some medicines like muscle relaxants (baclofen) and pain killers. You can say, it's kind of whiplash injury. Now I think everything related to head or brain is fine except some dizziness. It was some background.

Now the problem is, after 2 months of accident, I noticed blood started coming from my mouth with saliva in following conditions.

1. Specially when I wake up in the morning and spit.

2. Sometimes blood comes in my mouth may be one or two times in a day while standing or sitting.

3. Always comes when I lay down in a position shown in attached picture. 

But I can tell you that it's coming from downside (downside means from throat or somewhere else from down), not from upside (head or brain). But I don't know why and where it is coming from exactly. I have discussed this with many doctors 2 neurosurgeon, 1 neurologist, 2 ent specialists. First ent specialist have checked my throat but said throat is fine. Second ent specialist said that I am spitting blood because of acidity problem. Every doctor is saying that spitting blood is normal and will get fine by time. But it's 8 to 9 months have passed, I am still spitting blood almost everyday. I am tense about this situation because I can hear and feel different voices in my neck or throat. Feels irritation is my throat. Feels dizziness and numbness in my arms. Feels like my arms are not with me but sometimes feels normal. 

I don't know from where and why blood coming from. Spitting blood has any relation to that accident? Do I have any internal injury in throat, cervical spine or specially spinal cord? Can anybody help me to get rid of this situation? Any doctor please? I don't want to see spitting blood everyday. It feels scary and weird.
