Blood means ER: If vomiting blood, docs want to make sure the patient is stable & managed emergently if they are not. Most commonly blood in vomit may come from an ulcer, inflammation of the esophagus or stomach, or a tear in the esophagus usually associated w/vomiting. Other causes may be trauma to the back of the throat or mouth or from the lung blood & is noted in vomit. No dilly dally w/this; to er time.
I'm vomiting blood since morning, not too much blood every time but I'm worried/is that bad? I vomited 4 times till now. Thanks.
Vomiting blood: This is a life threatening emergency! You must get to a hospital urgently!
Err on cautious side: Vomiting blood is not something to chalk up to stress! it requires urgent evaluation. Stop nsaid's, alcohol, tobacco ; head straight to the emergency room please. Once your hemodynamics are stabilized, the next step is to determine source ; control bleeding ;/or prevent rebleeding.
No: If you're detoxing from alcohol, the vomiting might be related to the withdrawal process. The blood is likely coming from areas in the GI tract that were inflamed from alcohol, tobacco, Aspirin or whatever. If you see more than just streaks of blood, you should be evaluated urgently. Your detox should be supervised by a physician.
Vomiting blood after all food has been vomited. I force myself to stop even though I need to continue to vomit. What can cause this?
Mallory-Weiss tear?: A mallory-weiss esophageal tear may develop after vigorous retching. Brisk red bleeding however should not be ignored or dismissed. Old blood may look like coffee-grounds, and be dark-colored. Oozing, small volume bleeds may be diluted by other stomach contents and may look like streaks, clots, or pink-tinged material. Any of these descriptions deserve evaluation--bleeding is never "normal.".
Yes: Vomiting blood is never normal, and usually means serious problem, you need to see doctor asap.
Depends: If you have been coughing a lot and now you are vomiting blood but the volume is not a lot, you probably have what is called a mallory weiss tear and it will heal. If you have not been coughing, then it is an emergency and you should get to the er in the quickest manor possible. Seek hep at any rate to be sure you are ok, it's just not as much of an emergency if you are coughing a lot. Still go.
