Gastritis or ulcer: Gastric bleeding can be caused by a number of conditions and is very serious. The bleeding may be manifested by vomiting blood or by having black tarry stools or bloody diarrhea. The most common causes are gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, gastric or esophageal varices or a tear at the ge junction caused from vomiting. It should be promptly evaluated by UGI endoscopy.
