Blood in mouth

Post by Gnip » Sat Jul 16, 2016 7:45 pm

I am as probably most people are, unaware of the of my snoring. But have on good authority that is bedlam. I have been awoken when camping my other camper screaming for me to shut up. I sleep alone, partner in the spare room. I gather this is not unusual. What I'm concerned about is the bitter red stuff in my mouth in th morning. Which I believed dry blood. Is this xxx common?

I wouldn't think it was.
Go see your Gp or dentist.
Or even both, if your snoring is that bad, do you feel tired or feel as if you have not have any sleep?

I went through a phase of blood in nose and (much less extent) mouth. This was caused by the CPAP without a humidifier.

If you are not using CPAP then even so, constant mouth breathing can cause the mouth to dry out and crack/bleed.

Have you had a sleep study? You could start by trying an online Epworth Sleep Questionnaire and see what the results of that are.

Good luck (regardless it's worth a visit to the GP)
