Saliva with blood clots on spitting, shortness of breath, reoccurring. Permanent cure?

Hi Doc,
My problem appears and disappears again. As soon as i wake up while i spit i find my saliva with blood clots. There are times without clots. I had this issue 10 years back and had endoscopy done . but the endoscopy results suggested that there could be some ulcerations of throat. Now after ten years , the problem has cropped once again. Sometime i do experience shortness of breath . but no cough. Kindly help advice. Should i see a ENT?

Hello, thanks for the query.
Saliva with or without blood.
Possibly there are many reasons but few off them are.
1 Gingivitis (Gum infection)
2 Stomatitis or glossitis (tongue infection)
3 Pyorroea (dental)
4 Bleeding disorder
5 On previous night some hard food ( bone etc ) might causes local injury.
6Pharynigitis or tonsilitis
So please consult a doctor and get blood tests done and find out the cause and take treatment .
Have a good recovery. Dr. HET
