I think you need to see a doctor before it get worse. Coughing blood, that's not good.............

are you f*cking kidding me?? seriously, this is gotta to be a joke, anyone in a right frame of mind and some common sense WOULD go see a doctor, and even if you don't have a family doctor, go to the emergency room.

I'm sorry, but people here are nice enough to offer advices, I'd hate for this to be one big joke.

Def. see a doctor. Dizziness isn't good either, and I don't think is a symptom of the flu. Symptoms of so may illnesses are similiar--cold, flu, strep, pneumonia, mono, etc. that you really need to go to the doctor. And the blood thing....ya...doctor.

Dizziness might be associated with a fever, but coughing up blood...call 911! You don't cough up blood from a cold or the flu!

And get some exercise when you're well again. The best way to get your immune system healthy is a good cardiovascular workout a few times a week. Without exercise and paced, moderate to heavy breathing, your lymph won't circulate as well as it should. A healthy lymphatic system means a more healthier you.

But seriously, don't mess around with the blood you're coughing up.

I AM NOT A DOCTOR, THIS IS JUST MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

Streaks of bright red blood in the mucous, along with a metalic taste to the mucous as you clear it out, is often associated with pheumonia, full blown or walking. Probably a brown mucous, especially in th mornings, indicating viral pneumonia genreally. Green is bacterial.

I am a doctor, and like all the other doctors in this forum would recommend, go see a doctor who can appropriately obtain a medical history, perform a physical examination and evaluate you in person. There are three sources of misinformation: the news media, your friends and family. Listen to the latter two and ignore them all.

very true, if you have the real flu (which there is a test for), an antiviral will decrease the duration of symptoms when taken within the first 24hrs, if it's a different viral illness antibiotics will not help. A sinusitis develops over time (at least a week). The only way of knowing for sure is to see a doctor. It does sound like the flu though. In the mean time, rest, liquids, Tylenol and/or Motrin and a decongestant such as Sudafed will help.
