Recently, I was diagnosed with an intercostal strain. The symptoms are pain in the area of strain and swelling. Unfortunately, I have developed a frightening symptom where I am coughing up blood coated mucus. My father who worked as an EMT says that it is not an emergency and that I should be fine. However, I am still concerned. The amount of blood in the cough is not exponential, but it is noticeable. It is not frothy or painful to cough outside of the pressure it puts on the muscle strain. I do have allergies and I am a smoker. I also suffer from anxiety and depression. I am 22 years old. I can breathe deeply although with pain to the strained area. Should I go to the doctor tomorrow? Or is this just a side effect or something? I also take Zoloft 100 mg, Ibuprofen 800 mg thrice a day for pain and Cyclobenzaprine 10 mg at night.
