Default medical question

Each time I dive, when I get back up I hock up bloody mucus.. It's obvious it's caused by the dive/pressure and after spitting out a few it clears up until the next dive. I assume it's has something to do with sinuses and pressure, blood vessels expanding and whatnot. Just wondering if anyone had any info.

I don't think you're trying to be an ass, and the question I asked a few weeks ago was about a toothache. Yes I went to the doctor and and this guy (sounding like he didn't have a clue) told me to take musinex. I ended up hearing from 2 dentists on this forum that are also divers that gave me a lot of good advice. I think it's worth asking people who dive first before freaking out and rushing to the hospital every time something strikes me as strange. Just my opinion.

You may have sinuses that have issues with the pressure. Not sure how fast you are coming up. But it may be tooooo fast. Go see an ENT. Don't go to a general doc. ENT docs see divers all the time with your issue and can better diagnose you and tell you whether you need to continue or not.

Bloody mucus in not normal under normal diving conditions.
