If it's your mouth, maybe gingivitis (gum inflammation). Wherever it's coming from, this should be professionally checked; see your doctor.

In migraines I make myself vomit to feel better, but after every vomit I spit up blood in saliva. Which is fine after 10 mins. Vomits r often forceful.

In migraines I make myself vomit to feel better, but after every vomit I spit up blood in saliva. Which is fine after 10 mins. Vomits r often forceful.

OK, but not repeated: It's very common for people to have some bleeding after vomiting forcefully. The esophagus is irritated and bleeds. Fortunately, it is a constrictor muscle, so it stops its own bleeding. For this to happen once or twice is not harmful. However, constant irritation of the esophagus can lead to other health problems, so it is not something you want to happen frequently. ...Read more

Is there a urine, blood or saliva test to check adrenaline levels - my doc prescribed 10mg amitriptaline for better sleep but w/o checking anything?

Is there a urine, blood or saliva test to check adrenaline levels - my doc prescribed 10mg amitriptaline for better sleep but w/o checking anything?

Avoid sleeping pills: We do not normally measure adrenaline. If symptoms are of anxiety (fear, panic, tremor, sweating, fast heart, etc) and insomnia then there are lots of treatments, including amitriptyline. But best to focus on non-drug interventions for sleep (see: http://goo. Gl/jcscx) and anxiety (see: http://goo. Gl/aibdp). If these fail, then there are very effective psychological treatments too. Good luck! ...Read more

Periodental abcess. Started amoxicillin today had one dose. Little blood in saliva. Is this okay? Afraid I may accidentally swallow pus by accident.

Periodental abcess. Started amoxicillin today had one dose. Little blood in saliva. Is this okay? Afraid I may accidentally swallow pus by accident.

Ok to swallow pus: If just starting antibiotic treatment for a periodontal abscess (gum infection), it sounds expected for there to be a little blood or a little pus in the saliva. It is ok to swallow one's own mouth blood or mouth pus, because one's stomach will just digest the stuff. Swallowing it and digesting it is simpler and cleaner than spitting it out. Also, spitting it out can scare and disgust bystanders. ...Read more
