It is what it is: W/your diagnoses, you are likely calling it right, and should either see your gastroenterologist or er for evaluation and possible med adjustment.

Need to be seen: Vomiting blood and coffee ground appearing material needs to be evaluated urgently, if not emergently. Large blood loss is possible through the GI tract. Do not delay an evaluation.
