Blood From Ulcer?: Your boyfriend should see his GI physician. The source of the blood needs to be discovered. Most bleeding ulcers resolve with medical therapy but recurrent GI bleeding requires repeat upper endoscopy.. Also, this bleeding may be totally unrelated to his prior ulcer and may require colonoscopy if the upper endoscopy is normal.

It depends.: I do not think that a heart condition is likely, given your age and results under normal conditions. It depends on when you get these episodes, and under what circumstances. If they happen during a hectic period in your day, like at work, etc., i would say anxiety is likely. However, if they occur at random points during your day, or after exertion, i would say get a stress test, etc..

A 24-year-old female asked:

I have visible blood in my urine and went to hospital and they said I had a UTI infection but my left kidney is in bad pain, is this from a uti?

May or may not: Gross blood in the urine with flank pain until proven otherwise can be a sign of kidney stones. Uti typically starts from the bladder and if left untreated can potentially travel to to the kidneys with serious consequences. Follow where the pain the starts. Stone starts from the back vs UTI from the bladder.
