GERD//red emesis: Limited information. Would seek medical attention today. It could be some irritation from the acid of GERD as it refluxes upward with sleep into the nasopharynx ,or a major GI bleed,which causes nausea when the stomach fills with blood . Seek medical attention today as soon as possible.
