If I sleep in fetal position only, my saliva flows from my mouth that stains my pillow a litttle brown. But I do not seebloodinmymouthwhat is this?

Probably blood: For blood to tinge your saliva and thus stain your pillow slightly brown, not a lot of blood is required. It could be a sign you have gum disease and during the night you grind which causes slight blood seepage around the teeth and leads to the stained pillow. Your saliva would dilute the blood so it wouldn't be readily visible in your mouth. There may be another cause, however. ...Read more

Hello, Is it normal to spit dark brown blood from nose through mouth two days after removing the splints from nose. Which is reducing my facial pain.

Hello, Is it normal to spit dark brown blood from nose through mouth two days after removing the splints from nose. Which is reducing my facial pain.

Keep out: Yes, old blood from a procedure may/will be seen. Some of it dries on the lining inside the nose. When our noses run, the dried blood is moistened and will drain as well. It is very important to not put your finger, or tissue inside your nose to try to scrape this out. Pulling this dried blood off the very thin walls can injure the lining and cause a nose bleed. If it bothers you, inhale steam. ...Read more
