Very important, are you sure that it is your throat, and not coming from your stomach? The throat is way less serious, and can heal, but bleeding from your stomach is super serious!

When I purged, I saw it on my fingers. So, I guess it is from my throat. I am not sure though.

I would say that it is most likely from being to aggressive with your purging method. I know its hard to stop purging, but try not to for a few days and see if it goes away, before saying something. 

also was it just a little, or was it a lot of blood?

I have to agree with jazzy - it's only REALLY serious if it's coming from your stomach and is a lot - you don't want to be hemorrhaging - watch for dizziness, weakness, paleness, fainting, etc.

 

most likely, if it was just on your fingers, the acid eroded your throat a bit and you have ulcerative lesions.  I would try to stop purging for a few days - try to give it a rest.

u can tell a doctor everything its in confidence with them...... purging breaks blood vessels in nose and throat and can cause bleeding in stomach just try fasting say ur on a diet shake diet and let her see u make them 3 times a day and pour them away rather than drinking them or just say ur fasting. You will feel more in control that way. Give ur throat a rest.
