Blood in my mouth, please help

Hi, the past few days I have been noticing blood in my spit, mostly in mornings but sometimes at night also, with it being such a small amount I wasn t too worried, but just 10 minutes ago just after eating rice and chicken ( chinese ). I was sitting watching TV and tasted blood in my mouth and to my horror spat in the sink to find quite abit more than usual, it is bright red fresh blood, with a few mouthfuls of water it s gone, there is a painful spot on my gum, but I can t see a cut there.. and I always 99% of the time bleed while brushing, but I never see a cut on my gums at all, so not sure if it s internal or gum related.. going to see about making a doctors visit but unfortunatly no insurance, so thought I d post here first, any ideas?

You do need to see a doctor because you will need some blood tests done.You will need to rule out some bleeding and clotting disorders as well as vitamin deficiency disorders.
