Hey fellow HAs
I've been working myself into a frenzy about bleeding gums. Last night, when I brushed my teeth (which, I should say, I don't do as often as I should, and I sometimes skip days), one specific spot that bled a lot last time (about 3 weeks ago?) bled again! It stopped fairly quickly, but there was a LOT more blood than the usual "you need to brush more" blood. It gushed for a few seconds, and there was a lot of blood in the sink when I spit it out. It's in one specific spot. I'm going to the dentist tomorrow hopefully, I just don't want to be told I have something serious.
Needless to say, my first thought was LEUKEMIA. I don't have any of the other symptoms (maybe I'm a little tired? but I didn't notice that before I saw my gum bleed...), but no night sweats or fever (I take my temperature often...) or flu symptoms.
