Customer Question

I'm spitting out blood when I wake up in the morning, not coughing it up, but its in my throat when I first wake up. I had a bad taste in my mouth like iron so instead of swallowing I spit it out, it turned out to be blood. I have high WBC's and constant fever and head ache

Dear customer,

Thanks for your question?

What was WBC count? What was the result of the peripheral smear examination? Which other tests were done and what did your doctor advise?
