    You seem to be highly anxious about it. Have you had blood clots before.  When I ended up with bilateral pulmonary emboli I was passing out, my chest pain was crushing, I couldn’t talk as I was so breathless, my pulse was 77/33 with an extremely rapid heart rate of over 159 on bed rest, sweating and my husband said I was grey. So close to death and needed my clots to be thrombolysed. I knew I was extremely unwell and my heart had enlarged because of heart strain

    I would go to ER. If the bloody spit repeats, save it in the tissue to show them to doctors. I also was spitting blood about 15-20 days after my PE, but I also had pneumonia and it might have been due to that, I was told.

    I also wasn't coughing up blood, it was more like I had a feeling I needed to clear my throat of mucous, and I just would have some blood in it (sorry for the description ;-)). Not an awful lot though.
