Experiencing blood in mouth each morning. Is this a symptom of some sinus infection?
Welcome to JustAnswer.Blood in the mouth most commonly originates from gum tissue that has become inflamed due to periodontal disease. However, just because periodontal disease is the most common cause of oral bleeding does not necessarily mean that a diagnosis of periodontal disease can be assumed, nor does it mean that the blood is originating in the gums. Blood in the mouth could also originate anywhere in the respiratory tract, as well as the upper digestive tract, and could be a sign of serious disease.If you have historically been healthy and you have experienced no recent change in the way you feel, it would be prudent to seek an examination with your medical doctor and your dentist to rule out the usual suspects, which would indeed include your speculative guess of a sinus infection, as well as gum disease. Continued bleeding without a confirmed identification of the problem would necessitate more aggressive diagnostic efforts, which may include laryngoscopy, upper endoscopy, chest x-ray, and any other tests deemed appropriate based on preliminary diagnostic findings.Hope this helps...
