Sometimes blood runs down back of throat and is coughed up. Should stop when bleeding stops. Use cool compress and rest. If you have afrin (oxymetazoline) nasal spray put a few squirts up the nostril. This works very well. ...Read more

Yes see a doctor: Maybe you have chronic sinus issues which might explain much of what is occurring, but the morning issues might suggest a sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea, or even a nocturnal seizure. You are complex and need help in both diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
