Need further test: It is difficult to say if you have chronic erosive gastritis without having an upper endoscopy done. However your symptoms suggest possible problem. However- vomiting blood is never normal and you should be see asap. You could have and ulcer that can perforate and be life threatening. Avoid alcohol until you have been seen- but you need and egd- i would encourage cont use of med to help.
