Seems unlikely: Hi. Was your thyroid cancer treated (surgery, radioactive iodine, TSH suppression)? What is your thyroglobulin (stimulated, and with TSH suppressed)?

See your doc about the bloody vomit & stool & neck pain. ...Read more

My girlfriend went to the doctor. She was throwing up and spitting up blood. If she got pregnant while taking her birth control can it cause this?

My girlfriend went to the doctor. She was throwing up and spitting up blood. If she got pregnant while taking her birth control can it cause this?

Pregnant/vomiting: Pregnancy can cause the severe vomiting, and if you throw up hard enough or long enough, there can be a little blood associated with it if you cause little tears at the bottom of the esophagus or irritated lining of the stomach. It likely has nothing to do with her having been on birth control, and everything to do with her vomiting a lot because of the pregnancy hormones. Needs to see OB for help. ...Read more
