Ever? Lol odd. Does it look like coffee grounds?
He may also be vomitting what looks like coffee grounds. Maroon could indicate small intestine and bright red could be lower rectal region such as from an anal fissure, or hemmorhoids. It sounds like he should really quit drinking alcohol for the time being. You may want to go to your local drug store and get an H.Pylori test kit, to see if he has this bacteria in his system. Hope this helps!
If you are vomiting something that looks like coffee grounds than you need to see your doctor. Old blood looks like coffee grounds so you need to see someone.
Ive puked a little blood before and was told as long as it isnt more than a little bit and its only once then dont stress over it. Is it possible you just threw up pizza sauce? If you are worried then call the er or L&D and adk them.
Coffee ground emesis is vomiting of dark brown granular material that resembles coffee grounds. It results from upper GI bleeding that has slowed or stopped, with conversion of red Hb to brown hematin by gastric acid. Several tests are done to confirm diagnosis like complete blood count and other lab studies, upper endoscopy for suspected upper GI bleeding, secure the airway if needed. Iv resuscitation and blood transfusion if need and angiographic or endoscopic hemostasis.
What it sounds like is old blood, it looks like old coffee grounds, there could also be some bile in it that turns dark green. This has happened to my son, he had a hiataul hernia which was bleeding. He still gets gastro bleeds from time to time because of acid in the stomach. Erik also has problems with paralytic ileus, symptoms being diarhea and then constipation, he also has a large amount of gas in his bowels which cause a lot of pain.
She had some red blood at one point but no coffee grounds. Her bowels are opening okay although her stools are bigger than usual. Her urinalysis is normal. Her nail beds are very very blue - although she's never had very good peripheral circulation. She can't express herself. The doctor has sent blood for thyroid, anaemia and helicobacter. We're getting deperate. Many thanks, Bruce.
If it was blood and it was coming from his stomach (from a bleeding ulcer, for instance), then it will have looked like coffee grounds. Blood in the stomach coagulates when it mixes with stomach acid. If, on the other hand, it looked bright red and wet, it would not be coming from his stomach. It could, however, be coming from his esophagus. A severe enough case of GERD (acid reflux) can cause a raw and bleeding esophagus. In either case, your boyfriend should not be drinking alcohol at all.

Vomiting more than once per day, or continuing to vomit the following day Projectile vomiting Vomit containing bright red blood or what looks like coffee grounds (this is partially digested blood) Diarrhea Lethargy Vomiting despite not eating for several hours Abdominal bloating Vomiting also can be more dangerous in older dogs, dogs that already have health issues, and puppies.
If the blood is bright red, it is fresh. If it is partially digested, it will look like coffee grounds. Either way, you should go to the Emergency Room, or at least call your family doctor.
I am 19weeks and 5 days, and I haven't had morning sickness or vomiting since week 12. Tonight I threw up my dinner, and there was blood in it! Not a little bit, like big hunks of blood! I've read other females have stomach tearing and that causes this, but I haven't been throwing up constantly! Should I go to ER?! Help!!
Vomiting is pretty much inevitable if you exercise too hard, and vomit is colored by what you've eaten in the past hours to day. Blood comes up looking like tar or coffee grounds, and is only bright red when you're bleeding quickly and it doesn't have time to digest. Since hers is green, maybe it's gatorade? Make sure she stays hydrated, and get her to eat a little something when the vomiting stops.
I'm 10+2 weeks today and since yesterday, I've been sporadically vomiting up blood. I contacted my doctor, and the nurse that called me back said that its pretty normal. My concern is that while I've been pretty nauseous, I haven't been getting sick so I don't know if I trust that its just my esophagus just being torn up from the nausea. Has anyone experienced this before?
IF you start vomiting blood or coffee grounds, that would be worrisome. Also, if you continue to vomit and are unable to keep the antibiotic down, then you need to let your doctor know. Good luck.
i also have constant lose runny stools that sometimes look like coffee grounds....... an my vomit eventurally, after everything ive managed to eat is tossed out, turns to a yellow/green color.... i get pain also through my chest up into my throat and in between my shoulder blades..... and as of late ive been having extra bad heartburn an been belching what tastes an smells like sulfur or eggs.....
This might be blood. If the stomach bleeds, as in an ulcer, and the blood is digested by the stomach acids, you would vomit what looks like "coffee grounds." Please call your doctor and get an appointment. You need to be examined. If you start vomiting bright red blood, this would be an emergency.....get to the Emergency Room at the hospital right away. Bookmark this page, so you can come back and let us know how you are.
If you have already seen a doctor for vomiting up blood, you need to call this same doctor and report the new symptoms. Please don't wait!
Oops definitely not Grantham lol idk how that even happened.
**** Bleeding in your upper gastrointestinal tract (mouth, esophagus, stomach and upper small intestine) from peptic ulcers or torn blood vessels is a common cause of vomiting blood. Blood in vomit may be bright red, or it may appear black or dark brown like coffee grounds. ***********Call 911 if vomiting blood causes dizziness after standing, rapid, shallow breathing or other signs of shock.

What you're saying is normal and is an active colitis flare up that requires proper medications. I am alarmed at the vomiting having blood and mucus too. You aren't throwing up anything that looks like stool or coffee grinds are you?
It's not terrible, but it is. (sorry if that makes no sense) How much blood was he vomiting up? And also, was the coughing severe or just every now and then. Depending on the case, he could have just made his throat very raw, which resulted in bleeding. This would also not be helped by the vomiting of stomach acid. However, he could also be coughing because of rising acid in his stomach.
I had 2 days worth of severe localized abdominal pain along with vomiting what looked like coffee grounds, but no diarrhea and really no nausea -- just pain that led to vomiting. After 2 days the pain remained but was more dull, and the flu-like symptoms were gone, but a few days later I started vomiting again, and again it looked like coffee grounds.
I just happen to come across your post and I'm really worried about the blood and coffee grounds-type thing in his vomit, etc. I just want to make sure the docs he's seeing next week know this is going on right now! If I had these symptoms, I would be in the ER now because it's indicative of internal bleeding, but I'm aware I have liver problems. I don't want to scare you, but just make sure his docs know of these new symptoms right away! Blood in vomit or stool is not good!
Also, question for you, when you throw up blood, is it bright red, or does it look dark brown, like coffee grounds? That makes a difference.
While a week later I was throwing up and it looked like coffee grounds. I went to the E.R. right then and they addimted me to hositpal. When I was in there I had an IV and fuilds through it and the doctor order me npo=nothing by mouth. It was that way for 2 days, and doctor also had me drink a colon prep (1 gallon of liquid) and it worked somewhat. I was released on saturday. I went in on thur. After that They said all test were normal, so doctor sent me home.
When the ulcers bleed it can cause bloody vomit...or vomit that looks like coffee grounds. They will probably do a upper GI scope. THis is where they put a little camera down your esophagus to look at it and your stomach. They may take tissue samples, but this will help them better understand what they're dealing with. THey will probably reccomend you take an acid reducer such as Nexium. You may have to stop drinking alcohol for a while until you are better. Good luck!
Smelling coffee grounds helps its an aroma therapy. Drinking fresh squeezed lime juices citric acid relieves stomach pains and nausea. Little bits of warn soup or just broth. Always helped me. Hope you feel better.
If vomiting is violent or persists for more than 24 hours or if your vomit contains blood or looks like coffee grounds, see a physician without delay. Evaluate the cause and treat the symptoms accordingly. Nausea and vomiting are two vague symptoms that can be caused by many illnesses and conditions. How you respond to and treat them depends on what's causing them.
