Question
I apparently broke a blood vessel in my throat last night while throwing up during a seizure. My throat hurt like the devil when I came to and the heavy thick mucus that was gagging me was dark. My throat still hurts (10 hours later) and is very red but there doesn't seem to be any more bleeding. Should I gargle with salt water? What signs should take me to a doctor?

Hi ,
I have gone through your query .
As per your clinical history it appears that you had some trauma to your throat during seizure .
If I were your treating doctor, I would advice you chlorhexidine antiseptic mouthwash thrice daily than salt water & tab paracetamol for pain.
Consult your neurologist as soon as possible to prevent any breakthrough seizure .
If there is XXXXXXX red bleeding consult your ENT specialist as early as possible.

I will not be able to get out for several days because of the seizure and the only thing I have that you listed is salt. I will gargle with salt water. Is there anything that I should watch for?
