Taste Of Swallowing Blood In Saliva?
I want to askrnSometimes I like to feel the taste of blood in the saliva (mouth area) when tasting with my tongue. I checked there is no bleeding sometimes the taste comes after belching.. does that indicate bleeding on the other inside? And sometimes the throat feels like it hurts until the head feels like it’s being stabbed sometimes like it’s being pressed..rnrnPlease explain, thank you
Hi Hasila.. Thank you for the questions given.
The taste of blood in your mouth can be caused by bleeding. The source of the bleeding may be so small that you can't see it. The source of bleeding can be from bleeding gums. Bleeding gums can be caused by:
Inflammation of the gums (gingivitis)
Vitamin C deficiency
Frequently cleaning between teeth with improper floss or dental floss
Infections in the teeth or gums
Vitamin K deficiency
If there is bleeding along with phlegm and you are coughing, then the bleeding can come from a sore throat due to coughing too hard. As for bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract (eg due to gastric bleeding or due to esophageal varices, the bleeding is large and blackish red in color).
Your complaint of sore throat can be caused by: Pharyngitis (sore throat due to bacterial or viral infection), inflammation of the tonsils.
If you feel that your complaints are not getting better, there is a continuous bleeding in your mouth, you have fever, cough, pain when swallowing, changes in your voice, then you should see a doctor. The doctor will conduct a direct examination so that the correct diagnosis is obtained.
In the meantime what you can do:
Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption
Keep your teeth and mouth clean
Avoid foods such as fried foods, which contain preservatives and artificial sweeteners
Consume enough vitamin C
Drink warm water
