Thanks for the information.



The feeling in the back of your throat probably isn't from actual blood
clots. More likely when you threw up the blood, it was from your
stomach (possibly you had an ulcer). The feeling in your throat
could be from a few different causes, including digestive problems
(which would go along with your throwing up blood), post nasal drip or
enlarged tonsils.



You need to go to your doctor ASAP. It sounds like you may have a
serious problem, either with your digestive tract (such as an ulcer,
which may be why you threw up blood) or with your throat. Either
way, a doctor will take a look at things, and hopefully will be able to
suggest ways to make you feel better soon. I would like to give
additional advice and suggestions, but this is something that needs to
be checked out in person.



Sincerely,

Emily
