Vomiting blood? ER.: Vomiting blood suggests bleeding coming from the stomach, esophagus, or (less commonly) mouth or nasopharynx. It can be a sign of a bleeding ulcer. In people with liver disease, it can be a sign of bleeding varices (distended veins in the esophagus). Vomiting blood or material resembling coffee grounds (partially digested blood) really needs immediate evaluation, preferably in er.
