Thanks for the information.

It does not sound like anything serious. Your heparin use 25 years ago is not linked with your current blooding. Since you recently had viral infection, most likely your throat area is still raw and the bleeding you saw was coming from broken fragile capillaries. These are minor bleeding and harmless in most cases. Other possibilities would be bleeding from gum. You can keep eye on this bleeding and see if it disappear. You can use saline gargle to help your throat area.

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.
