Bleeding gums???
« on: December 05, 2013, 08:48:38 AM »
So I went and brushed my teeth this morning and I could taste blood ... Just figured I brushed too hard.
When I went to spit there was blood but a lot more than if I was just "brushing" too hard.
I looked in the mirror and my gums were bleeding.   
Oh course my HA mind freaked out.
But logically I am trying to talk to myself saying I just had blood work less than 2 months ago and everything was normal
What scares me is I lost my mom to Leukemia 5 yrs ago ( she was only 57 ) and I know bleeding gums is a sign of leukemia. 
Thoughts?

My mom's gums often bleed and it's just that she has more sensitive gums than most.  It can also happen if you haven't had a cleaning in a while and plaque has built up and is irritating your gums.  Give your dentist a call if it will help calm you but the chances of leukemia are about as good as your chances of winning the lotto, especially if you just had blood work two months ago.  Hang in there!
