blood in spit is a cause for great apprehension for patients although few of them have a serious reason. vitamin c deficiency may be there, dental problems are not uncommon, checkout these first. In case of acid reflux u should be having burning sensation in stomach and chest region. oesophgeal varcose veins may be there if u drink often or had a history of hepatitis, reasons are numerous. Please note a fact that what color the blood is red or brown before u consult ur doctor for getting reasons. wish u health.
