Brown Phlegm?

... For the past couple of weeks I've been seeing blood in my cough - on and off- however this only happens in the morning as soon as I wake up. The phlegm itself is clear (not yellow or green or brown) mixed with blood - a lot in the first cough, then less in the second, and maybe just a little in the third, then no more. It was happening before but then it stopped, but I saw it... (1 replies)
