The discharge of saliva containing blood that is blackish in color can occur due to many factors, one of which is related to acid reflux disease.
Acid reflux disease is generally a lay term that is often used to describe dyspepsia syndrome. This condition can have no clear cause (functional dyspepsia) or it can also occur in connection with certain diseases, such as GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), gastric ulcers, gastritis, cholangitis, and so on. This increased stomach acid can trigger irritation of the walls of the digestive tract. This irritation is not impossible to trigger bleeding that can pass through the saliva to a black color. In addition, sufferers will generally experience other complaints, such as nausea, vomiting, heartburn that feels sore, tightness, pain, prop, heat, phlegm, and so on. Furthermore, this set of symptoms can also cause sufferers to experience heart palpitations, difficulty sleeping, dizziness, weakness, and so on.
Apart from the effects of acid reflux disease, blackish blood in the saliva can also occur due to other factors, for example:
Bleeding in the oral cavity, for example due to tartar, cavities, brushing your teeth too hard, canker sores Bleeding in the airways, for example due to coughing too hard, tuberculosis, lung cancer, chronic bronchitis Blood clotting disorders, for example due to vitamin K deficiency, blood cancer, spinal cord disorders Side effects of drugs, for example aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs Rupture of esophageal varices, etc. You should check your complaint directly to your doctor if your complaint has recurred for more than 3 days. That way, it can be further evaluated, whether your complaint occurs purely related to stomach acid disease that you experienced before, or is there other causes. Usually, not only a physical examination, the doctor will also perform several supporting tests, for example blood tests, X-rays, ultrasound, endoscopy, and so on.
In the meantime, what you should do is:
Control the symptoms of acid reflux so that it doesn't recur and recur, namely by eating more regularly every 4 to 6 hours, limiting consumption of oily and spicy foods, limiting caffeine consumption, not eating near bedtime, avoiding excessive stress, and also avoiding consumption. indiscriminate medicine (especially anti-pain and anti-inflammatory drugs) Always keep the oral cavity clean, namely by regularly brushing your teeth, avoiding oral sex with people whose sexual history is not clear Increase endurance, namely by living a healthy lifestyle and don't smoke Hope it helps ya ..
