Hello,
Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
There are a few causes for spitting blood.
This can be from the mouth like gum bleeding .
In other cases it can be from the throat, lungs.
Here the common cause is an infection.
As your breathing is very noisy, you need to rule out any such infection.
Fever or other symptoms may not be prominent always.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
Treatment then can be planned accordingly.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
