I have had severe nausea for a over a week and just had vomit that looks like coffee grounds and constipation with black stool. Whats wrong with me?

Nausea, dark stools,

Black_stool
Sounds like you have a disorder with your stomach. Most likely either inflammation of the lining ( gastritis) or an ulcer. You should see your physician. An upper endoscopy will probably be ordered. In the meantime stop any alcohol, aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication intake and start over the counter pepsid, Prilosec or Zantac .

My son is vomiting uncontrollably and is vomiting what looks like brown coffee grounds what causes that?

Blood in stomach

Blood mixes with acid in the stomach and looks like coffee-grounds. The blood could be from an ulcer in the stomach, or could come from a broken blood vessel or capillary in the esophagus.

Go to ER

Vomiting
Coffee ground emesis(vomit) suggests that there is bleeding in the esophagus, stomach or upper small intestine. The reasons are multifactorial and require an exam. It could be serious, depending on the amount and source of bleeding. Don't delay-take your child in now.

My grandmother passed away in her sleep and vomited a lot of coffee ground emesis-- what could have happened?

Bleeding

Sleep
"Coffee Ground Emesis" implies vomited blood that originated in the stomach. This can occur with any bleeding in the upper GI tract; bleeding ulcers and ruptured blood vessels (varices) are among more common causes. While the specific cause is not clear from this history, ultimately the bleeding was probably the issue

I have had diahrrea for 11 days now that either looks like bial or coffee grounds along with severe vomiting and abdominal cramping light headed ness ?

Need to see doc now.

Vomiting
Persistent vomiting and diarrhea that looks like coffee grounds, abdominal pain and lightheadedness needs to be seen by a doc sooner rather than later. Concern for bleeding from your GI tract and dehydration or serious blood loss. Do not take ibuprofen, aspirin or naprosyn in the interim.

Gastro Bleed

Emesis
It means a bleed in the upper intestinal tract, usually the stomach or esophagus. The acid of the stomach makes the blood turn black. You need an evaluation as to the cause and you need treatment for the cause of the bleed- This should not be ignored

Why I feel like vomiting after drinking a hazelnut coffee? I had diarhoea right after BTW I'm on diet & consume 2 meals per day as I wake up at lunch

If it only happens..

Diet
...when you drink hazelnut coffee, and you are otherwise well, then don't drink hazelnut coffee! It could also be lactose intolerance if you are putting milk in the coffee. In any case, avoid it for a day or two and see if your symptoms go away. If they do, you have your answer and you need to not drink hazelnut coffee.

My wife just had her third chemo treatment & last night during her vomiting she threw up blood, not like coffee grinds but like blood. What should we

Go to the ER

High_blood_pressure
This is a medical emergency. You should take her to the ER and also give a call to the Physician, who is treating her. It seems that your wife is having hemoptysis, which is not coffee ground or black tarry. Hemoptysis is usually bright red in color, like regular blood and is vomitted. Coffee ground or black tarry blood seen, mixed with stools is usually seen with Upper GI bleeding.
